- The Sad Cafe

Out in the shiny night
The rain was softly falling
Tracks that ran down the boulevard
Had all been washed away

Out of the silver light
The past came softly calling
And I remember the times we spent
Inside the sad cafe

Oh it seemed like a holy place
Protected by amazing grace
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
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
Some just passed away
Some of them stayed behind
Inside the sad cafe

The clouds rolled in
And hid that shore
Now that glory train
It don't stop here no more

(ooh...) Now I look at the years gone by
(ooh...) And wonder at the powers that be
(ooh...) I don't know why fortune smiles on some
(ooh...) And lets the rest go free
Maybe the time has drawn
Faces I recall
But things in this life change very slowly
If they ever change at all

No use in asking why
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
