Lyrics


Verse
I fell off the road at midnight. There's not much to see in chrome.
Walking down the rails by moonlight. Something here feels more like home.
Meanwhile at the railroad station, as everybody came and went
All alone and in frustration, she never got the card I'd sent.

Chorus
I see a sadness in your eyes but I can't say that I regret.
Another moment passing by. There hasn't been one wasted yet.

Verse
Night time at the railroad station, I'm waiting in the switching yards
With a West bound destination, on an empty East bound car.
As the train pulls out at sunrise, as the train pulls out of town
It comes to me as quite a surprise when, here I am still hanging 'round.

Chorus

Verse
I fell off the road at midnight, I heard the whistle 'round the bend.
Running for the rails by moonlight, I'll be on that train again.
Meanwhile at the railroad station, as everybody came and went.
All alone and in frustration, she's clinging to the card I sent.

Chorus
I see a sadness in your eyes But I can't say that I regret
Another moment passing by. There hasn't been one wasted yet.
I see a madness in your eyes, it's something I won't soon forget.
But I'm not here to say goodbye. I never felt that much in debt.
