Conway Twitty – Sittin' In A Dim Cafe lyrics

Heartbreaks can't be far away
'Cause heartache just walked in.

Sittiin' in the dim cafe
Listenin' while the jukebox plays
The songs I like to hear when I'm alone
Thinkin' of my wasted past
Wonderin' if someday at last
I'll win the sweetest love
I've ever known.

Then all at once I saw him
On the arm with my best friend
Heartbreak can't be far away
'Cause heartaches just walked in.

I watched her as she smiled at him
And though the tiny lights were dim
I could see the love light shining in her eyes
With aching heart and trembling hand
It wasn't hard to understand
Why she'd someday be his wife.

And as the teardrops started
I thought of things that might have been
Heartbreak can't be far away
'Cause heartaches just walked in.

--- Instrumental ---

And then my poor heart skipped a beat
She took the table next to me
She didn't even notice I was there
But she looked around and just by chance
Our eyes met in a casual glance
She smiled and it was more than I could bare.

How could he know the way I feel
To him I'm just a friend
Heartbreak can't be far away
'Cause heartaches just walked in.

I smiled and turned the other way
My tremblin' lips just couldn't say
The way I feel, I wanted to explain
And so I guess you'll never know
How just a feiend could love you so
And hopes that he is happy just the same.

But here with just a friend
For me it is the end
Heartbreak can't be far away
'Cause heartaches just walked in.,,
