"Coffee and Cigarettes" as written by and Christofer Drew....
Coffee and Cigarettes are my only escape.
I got my cup of Joe, my pack of stokes,
And I'm on my way downtown, to
Set up shop, and sing my cares away.
So, won't you sing with me,
'Cause it's cold outside, and I'm feeling kinda lonely.

Friday nights are always the same in this town.
I'm looking up, but I'm feeling kind of down.
So, I'll light this cigarette and smoke the night away,
And I'll hope that Saturday will be the day
When everything feels okay.

Ba da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da

Coffee and Cigarettes are best when shared with you.
We'll go to Waffle House or your Mom's House,
And share a cup or two.
Yeah, I have friends, but they have friends,
And they have parties, and I'm so awkward.
So what do ya say, just as friends, we see a movie
This weekend, alright? Okay.

Friday nights are always the same in this town.
I'm looking up, but I'm feeling kind of down.
So, I'll light this cigarette and smoke the night away,
And I'll hope that Saturday will be the day
When everything feels okay.

Ba da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da

Ba da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da

    I'm caffeine and nicotine addicted.
    It's actually unbelieveable to how much these lyrics relate to me.
    This song means a shit load to me.

    General CommentI totally relate to "Yeah I have friends, but they have friends, and they have parties, and I'm so awkward."

    My Interpretation(I apologise in advance for possible grammar mistakes)

    I am nicotine and caffeine addicted, especially on flat, grey days. Coffee and fags are those vices that allow me to make my life a little more bearable.
    I think this song shows love for the little pleasures of life. Smoking, drinking coffee, singing "cares away" when you feel lonely, wishing there was someone who could share the warmness and intimacy of the interiors with you when it's raining outside.
    Watching your life "flow" and realizing that every day feels the same. Having friends who continuously go to parties, but not fancying anything but closeness with someone who can share life pleasures with you.
    Feeling down but never giving up, hoping a better day will come.

    It's unbelievable how much this song describes my life.

    General CommentI was going to post the lyrics to this song, but you beat me to it.

    This is the best song Christofer has made in a long time!! :)

    Even though i don't like neither coffee nor cigarettes, i can relate so much.

    I only see one thing wrong with your lyrics, i think "yeah i got friends and they have friends" is "yeah i got friends, but they have friends"

    General CommentIt's about artwalk!
    Every first friday of the month in springfield they have artwalk--performers and musicians etc. just hang around downtown and play music and show off. Cris probably performed at a few before he went big.
    And oh yeah, coffee and cigarettes :P
