She came from the middle of nowhere
Some sleepy Pennsylvania town
Her mother held her guilty for so long
She finally put those burdens down

He spent his whole life on city fare
His window played the evening sun
And it's hard to believe for a strong man
He surely was a lonely one

She took the morning shift downtown
Which strange to be his favorite place
And after every single customer was cruel enough
He was the only one to smile and say

Thank you for the coffee
A simple conversation
Thank you for the light
Shining in your eyes
It's taken such a long time
To find someone to talk to
And I know it ain't much
But thank you for your time

Oh, it's hard to find a kindred soul
People are so unkind
And little things drive you crazy
Stay locked away in your mind

And so they say that
Frankie and Johnny were lovers
Just like Romeo and Juliet
But time never listened to fairy tales
So love had met the bitter end

He went back to his city life
And Pennsylvania called her name
But you keep on living
Trying to find
Someone with the time to say

Thank you for the coffee
A simple conversation
Thank you for the light
Shining in your eyes
It's taken such a long time
To find someone to talk to
And I know it ain't much
But thank you for your time
