Barry Manilow – Border Train lyrics

got nobody left to listen to
got no promises to keep
something's gotta be out there
fine a world for me out there
no more livin' half asleep

there's an island in the misty night
little platform by the track
I dreamed I saw a light for me
a face, a place so right for me
that I'd never think of lookin' back

through the shadowland
like a siver band
got no kind of plan
I ride the border train
somewhere new to be
light the way for me
moon and memories
I ride the border train

city jumps up like a circus
neon flutters out of sight
the town itself is traveling
america unraveling
and swallowed in the hungry night

through the shadowland
like a siver band
got no kind of plan
I ride the border train
somewhere new to be
light the way for me
moon and memories
I ride the border train

There'll come a time
with no goodbyes
when I'll simply grab
that border train
and at journey's end
they will all be real
my lovers and friends
and I swear to God
there's time for me
and I'll live the life I waited for!

wooo oooo ooo oooo
wooo oooo ooo oooo
mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
I ride the border train

somewhere new to be
please light the way for me
moon and memories
I ride the border train
