Breakfast After 10
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
White kitchen walls with a thousand windows
You turn on Winston in the den
And I'm still asleep, but I can hear the piano
When you make breakfast after 10
And I smell the coffee on your fingers
I still smell the perfume in the bed
The crushed linen roses are on everything
And you're still inside my head

Chorus:
You gotta make her know how it feels to miss you
Let her know you're swapping sides
You're not the one with all the problems, no, no
You're the one with all the pride

So just pick your head up, boys, and walk away
Walk the coolest walk that you know
Cause in a month or two she'll call you
You gotta hang up the phone

And I hope she knows I've got this memory
That won't ever seem to break or bend
A thick lock and sheet rock is on my windows
In the kitchen, no
I don't think I'll ever take em down again

And I've learned a lot from all these
Break-ups and make-ups and fuck-ups and fake-ups
Things that I wish you could comprehend
Yeah, comprehend
But for now I'll lace up my wingtip shoes, boys
And I'll, I'll go have breakfast with my good friends
Yeah yeah yeah

Chorus:
You gotta make her know how it feels to miss you
Let her know you're swapping sides
You're not the one with all the problems
You're not the one with all the problems
You're the one with all the pride

Here we go, yeah

Chorus:
You gotta make her know how it feels to miss you
Let her know you're swapping spit
You're not the one with all the problems
You're not the one with all the problems
She's the one that's full of shit

So just pick your head up, boys, and walk away
Walk the coolest walk that you know
Yeah, I know you know
That in a month or two she'll, she'll call you
You gotta hang up the phone
The original version of Breakfast After 10, from Blue October's first album "The Answers", is much shorter than the later version on their next album.  Acoustic guitar drags you into the first verse, which is identical to later versions, and a guitar/violin chorus that is nearly identical.  However, after the second verse, the song goes into a violin solo and abruptly ends after a playtime of only 3 minutes.  Later, Justin added more verses and made it a more complete song for the "Consent To Treatment" album.
