Cold Coffee On The Table

…for Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday

I found it harder to think of a coffee flavoured song this week. But I picked a song that makes me sad. I guess because I wish all love would last forever. I sometimes don’t understand why it doesn’t.

This is “Forever” by Lewis Capaldi who has written so many great songs. This is one of them, but it is a weepie.

FOREVER

Caught me off guard, I wish that I'd been sober
Still, here we are, back in Hanover 99
Just like old times all over

Under the exit lights as beautiful as ever
I really wish that I dressed up a little better
No regrets is what we said
We can't go back again

Darling, nobody said that it would last forever
That doesn't mean we didn't try to get there
I never said that we would die together
That doesn't mean it was a lie
Remember, nobody said that it would last forever

Head in my hands, cold coffee on the table
Wish you the best, I would if I was able
Morning light, it stings a little

Out of my mind, I don't remember calling
Had too much tonic wine, sometimes it does the talking
Hope you know I wish you all the love you're looking for

Darling, nobody said that it would last forever
That doesn't mean we didn't try to get there
I never said that we would die together
That doesn't mean it was a lie
Remember, nobody said that it would last forever

Forever, forever, forever

Nobody said that it would last forever
That doesn't mean we didn't try to get there
I never said that we would die together
That doesn't mean it was a lie
They'll never take those long summer days
When love was untamed
Two burning hearts are dared to break
Remember, nobody said that it would last forever

WRITERS: James Ryan Wuihun Ho and Lewis Marc Capaldi

I am generally a lover of life and people. I wanted to start a blog to have an outlet for the millions of thoughts in my mind and to be able to connect with the world of the living. Since life seems to have moved online since the pandemic began, I need to join this party!

  1. Wow what a nice song. I read that it is about Lewis Capaldi expressing regret over the way a romance ended. Lewis unexpectedly runs into his ex, while he is intoxicated. He starts to re-experiencing the loving feelings he had for her in the past. However, at the same time, he seems to fully acknowledge that there is no chance of them actually becoming an item again.
