Song of the Day #2,757: ‘Coffee’ – Miguel

miguel_coffee‘Coffee’ from Miguel might sound like an order at a Cuban restaurant, but it’s actually the 16th best song of 2015, according to Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop poll.

I’ve featured one other Miguel song on the blog, back in 2013 when counting down the 2012 Pazz & Jop poll. Guess he’s a favorite. I didn’t like him then… let’s see if anything has changed three years later.

Well, I don’t hate it, though I don’t particularly like it either.

The video must have been a blast to shoot, though.

[Verse 1: Miguel]
We talk street art and sarcasm
Crass humor and high fashion
Peach color, moon glistens, the plot thickens
As we laugh over shotguns and tongue kisses
Bubble bath, Truth or Dare, and Would You Rather
A cold flame, the thrill of no shame
Drugs, sex, and polaroids
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye all night

[Chorus]
I wish I could paint our love
These moments and vibrant hues
Wordplay, turns into gun play
And gun play turns into pillow talk
And pillow talk turns into sweet dreams
Sweet dreams turns into coffee in the morning

[Bridge: Miguel]
Coffee in the morning
I don’t wanna wake you
I just wanna watch you sleep
It’s the smell of your hair
And it’s the way that we feel
I’ve never felt comfortable like this

[Verse 2: Miguel]
Old souls we found a new religion
Now I’m swimming in that sin, baptism
Peach colored skies we feel the sunrise
Two lost angels discover salvation
Don’t you wish we could run away now?
Yes, let’s
Drugs, sex, and polaroids
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye all night

[Chorus]
I wish I could paint our love
These moments and vibrant hues
Wordplay, turns into gun play
And gun play turns into pillow talk
And pillow talk turns into sweet dreams
Sweet dreams turns into coffee in the morning

[Bridge]
Coffee in the morning
I don’t wanna wake you
I just wanna watch you sleep
It’s the smell of your hair
And it’s the way that we feel
I’ve never felt comfortable like this

[Chorus]
Wordplay, turns into gun play
And gun play turns into pillow talk
And pillow talk turns into sweet dreams
Sweet dreams turns into coffee in the morning

[Bridge]
Coffee in the morning
I don’t wanna wake you
I just wanna watch you sleep
It’s the smell of your hair
And it’s the way that we feel
I’ve never felt comfortable like this
Coffee in the morning
I don’t wanna wake you
I just wanna watch you sleep
It’s the smell of your hair
And it’s the way that we feel
I’ve never felt comfortable like this

[Outro: Miguel]
Old souls we found a new religion
Now I’m swimming in that sin, that’s baptism
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye
Old souls we found a new religion
Now I’m swimming in that sin, that’s baptism
Two lost angels discover salvation
Under glass pink skies watching the sunlight
(Fucking in the morning)
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye
(Fucking in the morning)
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye
(Fucking in the morning)
Old souls we found a new religion
Now I’m swimming in that sin, that’s baptism
(Fucking in the morning)
Pick a star in the sky
We could both say goodbye

    I think we got the double meaning of “coffee” without the need for clarification in the final verse.😄

    Not my cup of tea or coffee 😉
