I'm sittin' in this cafe
People talking so loud
I can't hear myself think
And that's not a bad thing
The coffee keeps on coming
The waiter keeps smiling
As I'm riding on this river of caffeine
And that's not a bad thing

I used to feel sorry for someone like me
In a corner booth pretending to read
On a Friday night
I used to say it just ain't right
How could anybody ever have any fun
Without somebody, without someone
It never dawned on me
The possibility
That it's not a bad thing

All those thoughts of how will I live without you
Tonight you know they're few and far between
The waiter's name is Joey
He told me and that's when I noticed he ain't wearing any ring
And that's not a bad thing

There's a tug on the edge of my heart
It's you again saying, "don't you start letting go of me"
But I'm not listening
For once in my life I'll feel what I feel
Let it be
Let it be real
Let it flow through me and wash me clean
Yeah it's not a bad thing
It's not a bad thing

As I'm driving home I'm thinking
The worse might be over
Or maybe I'm a little bit naive
But the streetlights seem brighter as I walk up to my front door
I'm all alone when I turn the key
And it's not a bad thing
No it's not a bad thing
