Taking the midnight train
Taking the midnight train
I can't stand this pain
Just can't stand this pain

To have somebody hurt me for no reason
For no cause, for no cause

Left home very young
Left home very young
To the California sun
The California sun

And there a woman took me for her lover
She was the one, she was the one

Saying we were made for each other
And I could've been more satisfying
But then one night she packed her bags and left without a word
I guess I'll never know the reason why

It ain't no use in saying I never loved her
'Cause I did, God knows I did

Taking the midnight train
Taking the midnight train
I can't stand this pain
I just can't stand this pain, oh, Lord

To have somebody hurt me for no reason
For no cause, for no cause
