lyrics

Black coffee and a hand-rolled cigarette
Another Monday, hangin' 'round with my regrets
Waitin' on a miracle that hasn't happened yet
With my black coffee and a hand-rolled cigarette

Silver rain fallin' from a silver sky
Blue-grey clouds, bloodshot eyes
Prayin' for some changes, but I can't remember why
Black coffee underneath a silver sky

Dark chocolate, deep red wine
One more evenin' slowly slippin' by
Night time calls me with a whisper and a sigh
As we contemplate this crazy little thing called life

(trumpet solo)

Dark chocolate, deep red wine
One more evenin' slowly slippin' by
Night time calls me with a whisper and a sigh
As we contemplate this crazy little thing called life

With my black coffee and a hand-rolled cigarette
Blue Monday, hangin' 'round with my regrets
Waitin' on a miracle that hasn't happened yet
With my black coffee and a hand-rolled cigarette
