New Love (Late Night Diner Coffee)

from by Braden Gates

lyrics

late night diner coffee, half way through our second cup
talking about what we want to do and fumbling over what we’ve already done
she takes her coffee black and I take mine with cream
she says, ‘ don’t be so silly boy, how’re going to taste the coffee bean
it may be a little rough around the edges but I kind of like it that way’
late night diner coffee

I look into her eyes and try not to glance away
I’ve been learning how to love in the most vulnerable way
I say, ‘be careful with me and I’ll be careful with you
we’ll hold on to the little things to pull us through
I’m a little rough around the edges but I kind of like it that way’
late night diner coffee

it’s a new love
like learning to walk, slow and steady
you run when you’re ready
it’s a new love
like learning to talk, you find the right words
and she finds hers, new love

It’s coming on midnight she she says, ‘I think it’s time to go’
I say, ‘I think you’re right, can I take you home?’
leaving that diner never felt so good
you can call it fate if you think you should
it’s still a little rough around the edges, but I kind of like it that way
late night diner coffee

it’s a new love
like learning to walk, slow and steady
you run when you’re ready
it’s a new love
like learning to talk, you find the right words
and she finds hers, new love
