Lyrics of Coffee & TV

Do you feel like a chain-store
practically flored
One of many zeros
kicked around bored
Your ears are full, but you're empty
holding out your heart
to people who never really
care how you are

So give me coffee and TV
I've seen so much, I'm going blind
And I'm brain-dead virtually
is hard enough for me
take me away from this big bad world
and agree to marry me
so we can start over again.

Do you go to the country
it isn't very far
There's people there who'll hurt you
'cos of who you are
your ears are full of their language
there's wisdom there you're sure
'till the words start swirling/slurring
and you can't find the door

Chorus (x2)


'Coffee & TV' is a song by the British alternative rock band Blur. The verses are sung by the band's guitarist, Graham Coxon, who also wrote the lyrics. The music is credited to Damon Albarn, who also sings the chorus. The song appears on the band's sixth studio album, '13', released in 1999; and was also released as the second single from the album in the same year. Despite reaching only #11 in the UK singles chart, the song became one of Blur's most popular radio hits. Blur manager Chris Morrison believed that it was deprived of a top 10 place after it was confirmed that some sales figures weren't recorded. Its musical style is an anomaly in comparison with the rest of '13', and is similar to Blur's earlier, Britpop days.

The single edit of the song also appeared on Blur's 'Best Of' compilation, released in 2000. In addition, it was featured on the 'Cruel Intentions' soundtrack.

The edit of the singles cuts off the instrumental part after the fade out and runs about 40 seconds shorter than the album version.
