Coffee Shop breakdown

I was in a coffee shop earlier and when it was my turn to be served, the woman said “What would you like?”

I ordered a cup of tea, but while I was waiting I started thinking about how open-ended that question was. I could’ve said anything. And I thought: what if there was someone who was really emotionally unstable ordering and when she asked him that he started having a breakdown about all the things he wants in his life.

Naturally, I wrote a song about it while I drank my tea and I think it’s a rather nice song. I really like the harmonies at the end.

If you want to stalk me on social media...
