East West Cafe

Listen to this article

I was driving north away from home

Barely had a drop of gas

I pulled off in a town

Where I used to live

 

The East West Cafe

I knew I couldn’t stay

I couldn’t stay away

So many years have slipped away

Oh from the day

From the day, we first met

 

I’d been thinking about you for a while

And why you wrote to me

And there just off the freeway

And there it was

 

The East West Cafe

I knew I couldn’t stay

I couldn’t stay away

So many years have slipped away

Oh from the day

From the day, we first met

 

Oh tell me why can’t we go back

It’s never as sweet as the first time

It’s never quite what we remember

But our life and our chance has passed us by

 

When I walked in that final time

How I’d hoped things had changed

I took one last look at you

Then I drove away

The East West Cafe

I knew I couldn’t stay

I couldn’t stay away

 

So many years have slipped away

Oh from the day

From the day, we first met
