I heard the pitter-patter
Of a slow winter rain
I heard the lonesome whistle
Of a far away train

As I sat in the silence
Broken only by a train
I heard a heartbreak last night

Oh, how you cried when we said goodbye
As we stood at the station in the rain
A whisper was saying from a pine tree close by
When we heard the whistle of your train

I heard the moans of sobbing of the wind in the pine
I felt the cold icy fingers of fear from the spine
For I knew in my heart, you'd never be mine
And I heard a heartbreak last night

For I knew in my heart, you'd never be mine
And I heard a heartbreak last night
