Sad Cafe


Out in the shiny night, the rain was softly falling
The tracks that ran down the boulevard had all been washed away
Out of the silver light, the past came softly calling
And I remembered the times we spent inside the Sad Cafe

Oh, it seemed like a holy place, protected by amazing grace
And we would sing right out loud the things we could not say
We thought we could change this world with words like "love" and "freedom"
But we were part of the lonely crowd inside the Sad Cafe

Oh, expecting to fly
We would meet on that beautiful shore in the sweet by-and-by
Some of their dreams came true, and some just passed away
And some of them stayed behind inside the Sad Cafe

The clouds rolled in and hit that shore
Now that holy train, it don't stop here no more
Now I look at the years gone by and wonder at the powers that be
I don't know why fortune smiles on some, and lets the rest go free

Maybe the time has drawn, the faces, I recall
But things in this life change very slowly if they ever change at all
No use in asking why, they just turned out that way
So meet me at midnight, baby, inside the Sad Cafe
Why don't you meet me at midnight, baby, inside the Sad Cafe
