Smokie "Midnight Cafe" (1976)
A summer evening on Les Champs Elysees
A secret rendezvous they planned for days
I see faces in the crowded cafe
A sound of laughter as the music plays

Jeanne-Claude's student at the University
Louise-Marie is just a world away
You recall the night they met was warm with laughter
The words and music as she turned away

Ill meet you at midnight
Under the moonlight
Ill meet you at midnight
But Jean-Claude, Louise Marie will never be...

Each cigarette will light a thousand faces
Each hour that passed seemed like a thousand years
Midnight was turning into empty spaces
The sound of laughter'd disappeared


A summer morning on Les Champs Elysees
The empty tables in the street cafe
The sunlight melting through an open doorway
Jeanne-Claude has left to face another day
