When your good nights have been said
And you are lying in bed
With the covers pulled up tight
And though you count every sheep
You get the feeling that sleep
Is going to stay away tonight.
That's when you hear it coming
That is when you hear the humming of the
Midnight train, here again
Can't explain that midnight train, that midnight train

Starlight Express, you must confess
Are you real, yes or no?
Starlight Express, answer me yes.
I don't want you to go.

Want you to take me away
But bring me home before day-light
And in the time between

Take me to everywhere
But don't abandon me there
Just want to say I-ve been.
I believe in you completely
Though I may be dreaming sweetly of the
I can hear the train, here again
Can't explain that midnight train, that midnight train

Starlight Express, you must confess
Are you real, yes or no?
Starlight Express, answer me yes.
I don't want you to go.
Starlight Express, answer me yes.
I don't want you to go.

Starlight Express, you must confess,
Are you real, yes or no?
Starlight Express, answer me yes.
I don't want you to go.
