Black Coffee

img_6711_zpsaetcbkez

I’m feelin’ mighty lonesome
Haven’t slept a wink
I walk the floor from nine to four
In between I drink
Black coffee
Love’s a hand-me-down brew
I’ll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

Apakah yang lebih baik dari kopi hitam, yang saking pekat dan kentalnya memaniskan lidah yang pahit akibat hati yang remuk redam?

I’m talkin’ to the shadow
One o’clock till four
And Lord, how slow the moments go
And all I do is pour
Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I’m hangin’ out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry

Apakah ada yang dapat menghangatkan hati juga perut namun tak membakar lidah, selain kopi hitam panas yang diminum pertama saat pagi hari?

Now man was born to go a lovin’
But was a woman born to weep and fret
And stay at home and tend her oven
And down her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I’m moonin’ all the mornin’
Moanin’ all the night
And in between it’s nicotine
And not much heart to fight
Black coffee
Feelin’ low as the ground
It’s drivin’ me crazy
This thinkin’ ’bout my baby
Might maybe come around
Come around

Apakah ada yang lebih memahami khayalan dan imajinasi, selain daripada kopi hitam yang menemani pada pujangga, penyair, pelukis… atau apalah… yang sedang berusaha menuangkan kegelisahannya pada hidup?

Black Coffee song by Peggy Lee (1956), dan tengoklah steller saya, di sini, untuk ilustrasi lain yang terinspirasi dari lagu Black Coffee.
