death bed (coffee for your head) - Powfu ft. beabadoobee

The Experience: It sucks that it's all ending... Dying...
The Vibe: Nostalgia. Fear.
The Topic: Death.
The Value: Love.
The Tension: Don't stay awake for too long (Don't get old) VS. Don't go to bed (Don't die either).



Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of death bed: Happiness is fleeting. You grow old: stay awake for too long. You die before your time: don't go to bed. death bed is the nostalgia for life of someone who knows their days are counted. Regret for the past: I'm not perfect I been praying for forgiveness. Regret for a future that won't come: there's so much we haven't done getting married, start a family, watch your husband with his son I wish it could be me, but I won't make it off this bed. Gratitude - I got so many blessings - wars with despair - I don't know why this has happened, but I probably deserve it. And death may cut that struggle short. The one certainty? It's the people in our lives that we'll remember and cherish on our death bed.

Ask yourself: What ?

LYRICS:

Don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

Yeah...
I don't wanna fall asleep, I don't wanna pass away
I been thinking of our future cause I'll never see those days
I don't know why this has happened, but I probably deserve it
I tried to do my best, but you know that I'm not perfect
I been praying for forgiveness, you been praying for my health
When I leave this earth, hoping you'll find someone else
Cause yeah, we still young there's so much we haven't done
Getting married, start a family, watch your husband with his son
I wish it could be me, but I won't make it off this bed
I hope I go to heaven, so I see you once again
My life was kinda short, but I got so many blessings
Happy you were mine, it sucks that it's all ending

Don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

And I, don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

I'm happy that you're here with me, I'm sorry if I tear up
When me and you were younger you would always make me cheer up
Taking goofy videos while walking through the park
You would jump into my arms every time you heard a bark
Cuddle in your sheets, sang me sound asleep
And sneak out through your kitchen at exactly 1:03
Sundays went to church, on Mondays watched a movie
Soon you'll be alone, sorry that you have to lose me

Don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

And I, don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

Don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

And I, don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed

And I, don't stay awake for too long
Don't go to bed
I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
It'll get you up and going out of bed
