As he sat down upon the train
Silence settled in his brain
He reached out his hand
And touched her hair
He struggled with the
Same old though
Should he tell her
Should he not
He felt her presence
Everywhere

Whatever comes between us
Don't let it stand in your way
This is what he'd come
Here to say

She just smiled
And read a book
Gave him such a
Gentle look
He felt a pain right
Through his chest
He pictured back to
When they met
Open door on a movie set
Her brown eyes took
His breath

And every word she
Spoke to him
Went like a bullet to his
Heart
That's what he remembers
From the start

Now they're off
Searching in vain
Out of control
Just like a runaway train
Can't see that it's
Not up to them
Soon just like a river
They'll be rack home again

He sat up through
The hours it takes
Passing through the
Northern lakes
Til the sleeping giant was in his sight
He knew that she'd been drifting some
Wondered where his
Faith had gone
He stayed awake most
Of the night
Whatever makes you happy
I won't stand in your way
Words you hope you never
Have to say

Now they're off
Searching in vain
Out of control
Just like a runaway train
Can't see that it's
Not up to them
Soon just like a river
They'll be rack home again

She watched him toss
And try to sleep
Struggle with his
Demons deep
She thought of all
That they'd been through
Imagining her life alone
No where he was
That was home
She wondered if he knew

That every word
He spoke to her
Went like a bullet
To her heart
That's the way it's
Been right from
The start

Now they're off
Searching in vain
Out of control
Just like a runaway train
Can't see that it's
Not up to them
Soon just like a river
They'll be rack home again
