Lyrics:
My morning coffee,
that‘s what it‘s supposed to be.
But from what I see,
it’s a cup of black tears.

I’m having one, two, three
of them this morning.
One, two, three
cups of black tears.

Drops growing slowly
where craving gnaws in my guts.
Rising up heavily
as coffee in my eyes.

I’m counting one, two, three
of them this moment.
One, two, three
drops of black tears.

Each drop has hurt,
and has been cried,
and will be drunk,
only to hurt and to be cried again.

Each drop has hurt,
and has been cried,
and will be drunk,
only to hurt and to be cried again.

When you miss someone
who doesn’t miss you back.
When you kiss someone,
but do it only in your mind.

You‘re losing confidence
and self respect.
You can’t find value
in the craving.

Write a sad song,
put it into sound.
It’s feeling wrong
to love and be the only one.

But to feel love
means to be alive.
It might be tough,
but would you rather feel nothing at all?

Each drop has hurt,
and has been cried,
and will be drunk,
only to hurt and to be cried again.
