"Coffee Break (New Version)" as written by and Tim Pattison Michael Harrison....
I'm two cups into my coffee break.
I'm sitting alone in the cafe from the way.
Reading all by myself
Turning my cell off just to breath
And everyone I know just keeps calling me.
And I just need a little time.

Cause I'm overcommiting myself.
I guess this is growing up
I'm sleeping so little these days.
I guess this is growing up
I'm feeling things are about to change
I'm guessing this is growin' up
Yeah I'm growing up.

And my mom hates my guts.
She has every reason to
From all the things I do.
And it breaks me just to know
That I have torn her apart so many times.
So many times

Cause I've overcommitted myself.
I guess this is growing
I'm sleeping so little these days.
I guess this is growing up
I'm feeling things are about to change
I'm guessing this is growin' up
Oh I'm guessing this is growing up

Now I'm done with my coffee break.
I turn on my phone.
Oh that I've grown up

    General CommentLyrically, along with Catastrophe, this is one of Caleb's (and JCook's) finest. I'm in love with the fact that it is Caleb that is singing the whole thing; it's that much more personal and he really has his heart into it.
    It makes me sad. Like, thinking about growing up and stuff. It's so easy to relate to.

    General Commentagreed with drumstx006 the new verse is totaly rad.

    the song relates to everyone who wants to drag out the growing up process. ex)"i dont wanna change, i wanna stay right where i lay, eyes closed, head down on the pillow". typical teenager stuff haha

    General CommentThis song was written by Caleb and was titled Leaving Home, for his old acoustic band with Austin called Been Bradely. You can hear it on their Myspace myspace.com/…. It's about how he's finally got some alone time to think to himself, but everyone's still bothering him and calling him. He's just so stressed out because he's putting so much of himself into trying to make it in music. He's losing sleep, staying up late at night wondering if he has what it takes. He just says to himself that it must be part of growing up, and even though things are bad he has this feeling in his gut that everything's going to change for the better soon. His mom actually really does hate what he's doing with his life, and he feels horrible because he's still going on with it, trying to live out his dream. Again he's just laying in his room face down on the pillow feeling the weight of it all, wondering what the hell he's going to do. He's hoping that he can make it, without changing who he is, but that he might have to before it's to late, before he's to old or grown up to much. It's just a really deep and personal song. There's more to Caleb than meets the eye obviously. I can relate to this so so so much. I have my dream of making it in music as well, my mom hates that it's what I want but I keep moving forward with it..or try to. I always stay up late at night wondering if I'm going to be a failure. I feel like I'm getting older and losing my chance. Anyway, just an incredible song, you can tell it comes from his heart.

    Yes, I agree?
    Hahah. It's a lovely little snippet of a song that I think a lot of people in our fast-paced society can relate to.
