Lyrics

THE DINER


I remember the first day Loretta came on
Two young lovers with change in their pockets playing their song
Funny how they kept on showing up every Tuesday
She loved pancakes for dinner and he loved the blue plate

All the life
All the dreams
That go on in these walls
Man I've seen it all

CHORUS
At the diner
That old sugar tin
At the diner
And that jukebox that's been here forever
I remember the sweet smell of grease when he got on his knee said Jenny
Will you make me happy
At the diner

Heres a scar all patched up you can ask me sometime
About the day air force Bob got too sauced and drove over the line
When the marshal came he just gave him a ride home
Said no need to explain we all know where you came from and you're never alone

All the tears
All the pain
That goes on in the walls
Yeah we've been though it all

At the diner
That old AGA
At the diner
And that fake tree that's stayed here forever
I remember
The air left the room when we turned on the news and thought
Why did he do it
At the diner

When you're made of wood and concrete
No one really knows that you feel
But I hold all these memories
In my brick and in my steel

The diner
I've been through everything
At the diner
I would not change a thing
I'm forever
I remember
The day that dang squeaky door first got put in
And that leak in my roof that they never did fix
And the sound of that flickering bright neon sign
And the stains overtime that become part of life
At the diner
