Robert Ellis – Westbound Train lyrics
The road was dark and long
And you heard a hopeful song
Playing louder than any one you'd heard before

Oh, I know that song
She used to sing to me all night long
And when the music stopped, by morning I was gone

Now those songs escape my ear
But to you they're ringing clear
Oh, that westbound train already passed me by
And I know just why you'd want to hitch a ride, oh
Other trains'll be coming through
And I'm gonna catch one too
Yeah, we do what we have to do

And who'm I to say
what you do along your way?
You said yourself this is a game you know how to play

It ain't right, it ain't wrong
But there's no sorrow in this song
I knew it wouldn't be too long 'fore she moved on

And I've moved on too
I ain't got nothing but love for you
Oh, that westbound train already passed me by
And I know just why you'd want to hitch a ride, oh
Other trains'll be coming through
And I'm-a gonna catch one too
Yeah, we do what we have to do

The Great Rearranger's changing everything again
Thought you stranger when I knew you way back when
We are older now, and there's no need to pretend
That anything we have in life means more than friends

Oh, that westbound train already passed me by
And I know just why you'd want to hitch a ride, oh
Other trains'll be coming through
And I'm-a gonna catch one too
Yeah we do what we have to do
