The Sad Café

This song is by Eagles and appears…

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 Café

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 Café

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 Café

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 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
It just turned out that way
So meet me at midnight, baby
Inside the Sad Café

Why don't you meet me
At midnight, baby
Inside the Sad Café
