lyrics

I’m sitting at the station
It’s early in the morning, half past eight
You’re on the other side
Across the railroad ties, reading while you wait

I can’t reach
I can’t speak
But I can smile
That whistle’s blown’
That steam train’s goin’- and

I don’t care when my train comes in
It’s just as well for the places I’ve been
All I care is, will you be there, when the last cars pass,
On the other side of the tracks?

It rolls into the station
And quickly fills the chasm of our track
Before it blocks my view
I look again to you, but you’re not looking back

You can’t reach
You can’t speak
But I swear I saw you smile
But that whistle’s blown’
That steam train’s goin’ - and

I don’t care when my train comes in
It’s just as well for the places I’ve been
All I care is, will you be there, when the last cars pass,
On the other side of the tracks?

I can’t reach
I can’t speak
But I can smile
That whistle’s blown’
That steam train’s goin’- and

I don’t care when my train comes in
It’s just as well for the places I’ve been
All I care is, will you be there, when the last cars pass,
On the other side of the tracks

And I don’t care when my train comes in
It’s just as well for the places I’ve been
All I care is, will you be there, when the last cars pass,
On the other side of the tracks?

Will you be there
Will you be there
Will you be there, when the last cars pass,
On the other side of the tracks?
