Song Lyric Sunday – Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop

The prompt from Jim:

This week we have coffee related prompts of Cappuccino / Coffee / Expresso / Latte / Mocha and the song that you choose must contain one of these prompt words in either the title or the lyrics.


“Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop” was the first song that came to mind when I read the prompt, and since it starting playing in my mind, I could think of nothing else.

The song was written by American songwriter and actor Landon Pigg in 2007 and re-released in 2009. It only made it to #33 on the Adult Pop Chart and #13 on the Adult Contemporary Chart.

Many people recognize it from commercials for AT&T or DeBeers rather than airtime. To me it has a very easy and peaceful feel to it. I like the idea of falling in love from a distance.

Pigg discovered the melodic guitar intro and it became the beginning of the song which was completely written on the guitar.

I have always loved this song in its simplicity. I do not want to try to and analyze it. Honestly, I do not know many of his other songs, although he has recorded several. For me, this is a throwback to young love and is the kind of song you just listen to and enjoy. It requires nothing of the listener other than that.

Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop
Lyrics from Lyricsmode.com

I think that possibly
Maybe I’m falling for you
Yes
There’s a chance that I’ve fallen quite hard over you

I’ve seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too

I think that possibly
Maybe I’m falling for you

No one understands me quite like you do
Through all of the shadowy corners of me

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I think that possibly
Maybe I’m falling for you
Yes
There’s a chance that I’ve fallen quite hard over you

I’ve seen the waters that make your eyes shine
Now I’m shining too

Because
Oh
Because I’ve fallen quite hard over you

If I didn’t know you I’d rather not know
If I couldn’t have you I’d rather be alone

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

All of the while
All of the while it was you
You
You
You

SoCS – Do You Like Butter?

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you every week by Linda Hill. Check out her blog for the rules and the contribution of other bloggers.

This week’s prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “butter.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!


There is only one scientific way to find out if you like butter. You must go outside, pick a buttercup and place it under your chin. If your chin turns yellow you like butter!

Did you ever do that as a kid? We certainly did. What a fun memory. We had no idea that the shiny petals of a buttercup would always reflect the light back and turn our chins yellow.

Now my mind turns to music as it often does on a Saturday. First up “Build Me Up Buttercup” by The Foundations.

And since we’re talking butter, let’s listen to another oldie that talks about butter. I couldn’t remember who sang it though – I had to look it up – The Newbeats! See, that was not in my stream of consciousness this morning. Now to go make a piece of toast – with butter!
