The 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
