"Black Coffee" as written by Andre Staedter and Mirko Hensel....
Night Swimming
Beach walking
Always silent
Never talking
Then you call my name
And I know inside I love you

Sail away
I miss you more
Until you see the shore
There I will be waiting
Anticipating

Each moment is new
And breeds a moment
Each moment is cool
And breeds a moment

I wouldn't want to be
Anywhere else but... here
I wouldn't want to change
Anything at all
(Anything oh I...)

I wouldn't want to take
Everything out on... you
Though I know I do
(Although I know I do)
Everytime I fall

Day dreaming
Chain smoking
Always laughin
Always jokin
I remain the same
Did I tell you that I love you

Brush your teeth
And pour a cup of black coffee out
I love to watch you do that every day
The little things that you do

Each moment is new
And breeds a moment
Each moment is cool
And breeds a moment

I wouldn't want to be
Anywhere else but... here
I wouldn't want to change
Anything at all
(Anything oh I...)

I wouldn't want to take
Everything out on... you
Though I know I do
(Although I know I do)
Everytime I fall

Hmmmmmm
Hmmmmmm
Each moment is cool
And breeds a moment

I wouldn't want to be
Anywhere else but... here
I wouldn't want to change
Anything at all
(Anything oh I...)

I wouldn't want to take
Everything out on... you
Though I know I do
(Although I know I do)
Everytime I fall
(Everytime I fall)
(Everytime I fall)

I wouldn't want to be
Anywhere else but... here
(Anywhere but here)
I wouldn't want to change
(I wouldn't want to change)
Anything at all
(Anything oh I...)

I wouldn't want to take
Everything out on... you
Though I know I do
(Although I know I do)
Everytime I fall

Night swimming
Beach walking
Always silent
Never talking
Then you call my name
And I know inside I love you

Sail away
I miss you more
Until you see the shore
There I will be waiting
Anticipating

    General CommentYeah, I wonder about that too. Anyway this song sounds really great, the sound and the general mood is a little bit dark and I love it. I can relate to that feeling of not wanting to leave the place you are in and the moment you're living cause you know it won't ever be repeated and those days won't come back...And it's funny how this song was played and was a hit while I was enjoying undoubtely the best summer of my life (early 2001).

    General Comment"Day dreamin', chain smokin'/Always laughin', always jokin'" - that bit by itself reflects the simpleness of the song. It's relaxing...good tune.

    General Commenti assume its cos of the line about pouring out the black coffee. not as obvous a title as it could be and is kinda the focus of the songs meaning, this is the best time, want to freeze it forever event he little things..

    General Commentsong is probably about this girl who is so in love with this guy as though he is like the perfect guy for her but the girl is suffering from depression that whenever she is going through an emotional ride, he will be her bashing bag where she let's go of all the emotions.

    General CommentIts called black coffee because the song is about how she loves even the littlest things he does, like pouring his 'black coffee'...

    And pour a cup of black coffee out
