I've been workin' on a night train
Drinking coffee, taking cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Trying to get safely home

Well in a little country station
Somewhere out in the midwest
I see the people out there waiting
Heart beating in my chest

And I'm thinkin' about a woman
Who I put no one above
I'm not lookin' to replace her
Just need someone to love

Well I'm out here on my night train
Drinking coffee, taking cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Trying to get safely home

And I'm livin' in the city
Where the noise, it never stops
Hammers poundin' on the pavement
Whistles from traffic cops

Nobody looks you in the eye, yeah
Walkin' 'round with clenched fists
I've been searchin' for a simple place
Don't know if it exists

The sunrise out there calling my name
I can see her movin', I can see her movin'

Well at a certain time of night, now
I'll be comin' with the wind
Where there isn't a beginning
And there is no end

Oh and everything is floatin'
Everything is on time
And I know that we're all goin'
To the end of the line

Well I'm out here on my night train
Drinking coffee, taking cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Trying to get safely home

Well I'm out here on my night train
Drinking coffee, taking cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Trying to get safely home
Trying to get safely home
Trying to get safely home
