Landon Pigg - Falling In Love At a Coffee Shop

Landon Pigg - Falling In Love At A Coffee Shop


Once in a while, you come across a song that wears its heart so plainly on its sleeve- no complex metaphors, no hidden meanings, just a direct and simple message: "I'm falling in love with you. Like hard." Landon Pigg's "Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop" is that kind of a song. We first heard it when we saw the new AT&T ad on TV and the lyrics jumped out at me with its unabashed sappiness, but not in a bad way. Apart from working really well with the ad's narrative-- some girl sending her boyfriend off at the airport and then pining for him as she receives photos of him on her AT&T phone, and then finally reuniting by some park bench-- there is an almost Nick Drakesque sweet longing in Pigg's voice that really draws you in. It's been playing on our stereo for the past hour. Give it a listen- you'll remember the moment you fell in love with that special someone in your life, and then fall in love with him/her all over again :)
I think that possibly
Maybe I'm falling for you
Yes
There's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you

I've seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too

I think that possibly
Maybe I'm falling for you

No one understands me quite like you do
Through all of the shadowy corners of me

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I think that possibly
Maybe I'm falling for you
Yes
There's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you

I've seen the waters that make your eyes shine
Now I'm shining too

Because
Oh
Because I've fallen quite hard over you

If I didn't know you I'd rather not know
If I couldn't have you I'd rather be alone

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew

All of the while
All of the while it was you
You
You
You
-Landon Pigg, "Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop"

Thanks for posting this. It's so sweet. Something to put on repeat when you're in the right kind of mood. :)

What an unfortunate name though

That's what I thought! I hope he didn't have too cruel a childhood...
