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 shore in the Sweet by and by Some of their dreams came true, Some just passed away And some of the 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 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 There's 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.
