One more cup of coffee for the road. One more cup of coffee 'fore I go...

The tale of two lovers- A beautiful, but emotionally detached woman and her lover, { who unmistakably has slight abandonment issues }. The inevitable end of their psychically driven relationship has long been in sight for the man, as he sees she has no true love for him, but merely cares for him. Though he loves her, he decides to leave. And so she asks, ''One more cup of coffee for the road?' To which he answers, ''One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.''
 
{ My own take on the masterpiece. }
 
Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above
 
One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.
 
Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food.
 
One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.
 
Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself
You've never learned to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.
 
One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go.
To the valley below.
 
-Bob Dylan- One more cup of coffee { Album: Desire }
