Eagles - The Sad Cafe Lyrics

The Sad Cafe

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 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

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.
