The Sad Cafe Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 remember 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"
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
And 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

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 let's 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
It 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
