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

  1. An easy one for me. London band ‘Squeeze’, from 1982. One of my favourite bands, singing in a London accent of course.

    There’s a stain on my notebook
    Where your coffee cup was
    And there’s ash in the pages
    Now I’ve got myself lost
    I was writing to tell you
    That my feelings tonight
    Are a stain on my notebook
    That rings your goodbye
    With the way that you left me
    I can hardly contain
    The hurt and the anger
    And the joy of the pain
    Now knowing I am single
    They’ll be fire in my eyes
    And a stain on my notebook
    For a new love tonight
    From the lips without passion
    To the lips with a kiss
    There’s nothing of your love
    That I’ll ever miss
    The stain on my notebook
    Remain all that’s left
    Of the memory of late nights
    And coffee in bed
    Now she’s gone
    And I’m back on the beat
    A stain on my notebook
    Says nothing to me
    Now she’s gone
    And I’m out with a friend
    With lips full of passion
    And coffee in bed

    Best wishes, Pete.
