Cranberry Coffee


I have to admit that I am a big fan of the Cranberries’ music. The song Zombie is a powerful one in my life. But this week Jim Adams’ challenge was to use a coffee themed song and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee fits. The song is the title song from the band’s fifth album.  The album was released in October 2001and sold 170,000 copies in the US album and 1,300,000 copies worldwide. Various band members have said the song is about waking up to realities, such as life isn’t all about work. It is a call to live in the moment, and also to take stock of your life.

Lyrics:

I, I went to hell

I might as well learn by my mistakes

I at twenty-four, was insecure, do whatever it takes

Come on and wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up

It’s time, smell the coffee, the coffee

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up

This time, smell the coffee, the coffee

She’s only got one reason to live, this is your life

She’s only got one message to give, give it tonight

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll do anything

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll lose everything

Everything

Come on and wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up

It’s time, smell the coffee, the coffee

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up

This time, smell the coffee, the coffee

She’s only got one reason to live, this is your life

She’s only got one message to give, give it tonight

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll do anything

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll lose everything

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll do anything

She’s so gorgeous, I’ll lose everything

Everything
