Nod Over Coffee

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Chase The Buffalo (1993).

This song is a cover of "Nod Over Coffee" by Mark Heard.
All the unsaid words that I might be thinking

And all the little signs that I might give you

They would not be enough

No they would not be enough

So we nod over coffee and say goodbye

Smile over coffee and turn to go

We know the drill and we do it well

We love it, we hate it

Ain't that life

Ain't that the curse of the second hand

Ain't that the way of the hour and the day

If I weren't so alone and afraid

They might pay me what I am worth

But it would not be enough

You deserve better

So we nod over coffee and say goodbye

Do whatever has to be done again today

Get in the traffic and time will fly

Look at the sun and pray for rain

Ain't that the curse of the second hand

Ain't that the way of the hour and the day

The dam of time cannot hold back

The dust that will surely come of these bones

And I'm sure I will not have loved enough

Will not have loved enough

If we could see with wiser eyes

What is good and what is sad and what is true

Still it would not be enough

Could never be enough

So we nod over coffee and say goodbye

Bolt the door it's time to go

Into the car with the radio on

Roll down the window and blow the horn

Ain't that the curse of the second hand

Ain't that the way of the hour and the day
