verse 1:
down a city street at night she hurries toward a distant light
while midnight tolls its miseries, she shields her eyes from what she sees

stairs descend angry walls/escape from domestic brawls
the glass breaks the merchant's spine beneath the staring sign

who cares on streets so mean?
only fools try to intervene
what good could one man do?
it's best that she walk on through

when nobody cares, go there
café gargoyle

verse 2:
could she ever understand the boy who deals, he's only ten
the man shrouded in a cardboard home/whose hunger drones

pre-chorus 2:
who loves on streets so mean?
crack is life's vaccine
don't ever attempt to fight the uncompromising night

chorus 2:
when love is lost you'll cross
café gargoyle
when nobody cares, go there
café gargoyle

rainy windows, café gargoyle
'round the corner, down at the end of the street

verse 3:
before dawn dispels her strife, she swallows all the pain she's seen
down through the coffee cups of life she reconciles with hope again
