"Coffee Spoon" as written by and Matthew Maust Jonathan Russell....
I can argue with the mime
I can argue with the mime
He is reading me the riot act
Every line

Every lawyer in his prime
Every lawyer in his prime
Gets nostalgic for the bar's
Naivete to crime

Ascetics wring their hands
This decadent misuse
Inside my china room
You are my coffee spoon

My indulgence is a joke
And while everybody laughs
I'm clipping coupons
And saving my breath

I was celebrating Lent
With a candle in a tent
When you came and snatched me up
Out of retirement

Now I'm buying finer clothes
In department store windows
Throwing credit cards down
Never raise my voice

    General CommentI do believe this song in all its seemingly unorganized compilation of situations all boil down to the issue of simplicity in the mere essence of finding that special someone. That someone that no matter what goes on throughout life, is a constant. A piece so essential and yet may often be downplayed. Love is essential and all though one can go about the day to day and exsist, you aren't truly in exsistence without love, or someone to love.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song and the lyrics are almost acurate but the lyric is 'naivete to crime' not 'not every cheat...' anyways for me the meaning of this song is when u find new love, and that person stirs u up from your routine and changes you.

    Song MeaningThis song really means a lot to me in that it speaks about true love in general. I could be completely wrong in the meaning of this song but this is what I get out of it every time I listen to it. It is sort of a metaphor, in that in his beautiful china room full of precious and expensive tableware, the woman who he adores is like his coffee spoon out of the collection. A certain something that is so simple, but that he needs in his life.
