The title and last track of this album.
It’s not just the coffee in the morning for your sweetie that’s the glue for any relationship,
it’s why you do it in the first place.
So begins another day of opened eyes and windows traffic wheels and wheels away noise goes where the wind blows He makes his coffee black as night thinks about her sleeping their love is small things shining bright sometimes it leaves him weeping It's not too late at this late stage for hearts of stone to soften when the years add to your age love doesn't happen often fair enough, then, let it be so. They only met scant years ago an almost chance encounter music wine and laughter flowed colours glowed around her he to her seemed not too far away for old flirtation she cast it out he took the bait expectant hesitation Bridge: “How do you like your coffee?” she asked as the party whirled “Black as midnight oil and you?” Signal flags unfurled. “Light tan, lots of cream and honey” A finger through her hair and from there to here from then to Now you take another cup bring it to the table take care not to fill it up leave room so you're able to froth the heated honeyed cream pour it in the centre go into your room of dreams set it down beside her It's not too late at this late stage for hearts of stone to soften when the years add to your age love doesn't happen often fair enough, then, let it be so. …. love is small things shining bright open eyes and wonder... © 2016 words and music by Edward Moll (SOCAN)
