BUT YOU CAN'T CHANGE HIS POINT OF VIEW
C2       G6sus4  Fmaj7(no3)        C2 G6sus4 Fmaj7(no3)
AND TONIGHT, AS I WAS DRIVING HOME, I PASSED A COFFEE SHOP
C2      G6sus4  Fmaj7(no3)             G
AND YOU KNOW, I WRESTLED WITH THE TRUTH
C2     G6sus4  Fmaj7(no3)      C2       G6sus4  Fmaj7(no3)
AND HOW I'D EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT YOU COULD NEVER UNDERSTAND
C2  G6sus4  Fmaj7(no3)           G
AND HOW I'D KEEP MY MIND FROM YOU
                    Am7
BUT THAT'S THE PRICE I PAY
G            Am7
AND YOUR WAY IS NOT MY WAY
G      Am7          Fmaj7(no3)
TODAY'S ANOTHER DAY; WELL, IT'S OKAY.


-Chorus-
   C     C/B
SO SUE ME,
Am7
SUE ME,
  G                  Fmaj7(no3)
IF I JUST DON'T WANT COFFEE TONIGHT.
   C2    C/B
SO SUE ME,
Am7
SUE ME,
  G                  Fmaj7(no3)
IF I JUST DON'T WANT COFFEE TONIGHT, COFFEE TONIGHT.

Self-titled album:                           just don't want coffee EP, where different:

Though i am small, i've seen things
far beyond these city walls
The land is flat it rolls for miles
I don't know much, i know i've
many places yet to see
And i know i've been here for a while

And wouldn't you know, just when i
thought i had this figured out,
Well, i'm back at my first day at school.
I'm trying not to think too loud,
i raise my hand to scratch my head.
No ideas of what to do.

'Cause something's changed today.
And what it is i just can't say.
And if i don't seem okay, i'm okay.

So sue me, sue me,
If i just don't want coffee tonight.

Back in this coffee house                    i've got this friend who's been
where we just met a week ago.                around the world a time or two
Now we've been friends since we were young.  he keeps maps on all his walls
All our conversations are                    i've never been to france.
hitting walls we can't ignore.               i've heard it's nice this time of year
We can hide but we can't run,                except i don't speak french at all

                                             i wonder would it be as hard
                                             to have never seen you
                                             as to keep you from my sight
                                             and though i've talked about you
                                             to my friend a million times
                                             i first saw you tonight

And i can't run from you                     but something's changed today.
or what we've run into.                      And what it is i just can't say.
Now regardless what i choose, we both lose.  And if i don't seem okay, i'm okay.

So sue me, sue me,
If i just don't want coffee tonight.

It must be getting late.
But where's my head?
Where is my head?

I still hear you telling me
what a big mistake i made
Funny, that's what i've been telling you
'cause i can lead a horse to water
and you can even make him drink
But you can't change his point of view

tonight, as i was driving home,
i passed a coffee shop
And you know, i wrestled with the truth      i glanced through the window there
And how i'd explain to you                   it was just like the one
what you could never understand              where you work where i met you
And how i'd keep my mind from you            i didn't stop. i wouldn't dare

But that's the price i pay                   something's changed today.
And your way is not my way                   your way is not my way
Today's another day; well, it's okay.        today's another day, and i'm okay.

So sue me, sue me,
If i just don't want coffee tonight.

I think i need some rest
Rest my head,
Arrest my head.
