Trains and boats and planes are passing by.
They mean a trip to Paris or Rome
To someone else but not for me.
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

We were so in love, and high above
We had a star to wish upon. Wish
And dreams come true, but not for me
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

You are from another part of the world,
You had to go back a while and then
You said you soon would return again.
I'm waiting here like I promised to.
I'm waiting here but where are you?

Trains and boats and planes took you a way,
But ev'ry time I see them I pray
And if my prayers can cross the sea,
The trains and the boats and planes
Will bring you back, back home to me.
