Lyrics

We were strangers on the night train
Riding in the dark
Going nowhere, to speak of...
Just escaping from the past
I saw you sitting there, motionless
While the train was speeding fast
Then a tear started falling down
Was it yours or was it mine?

Taking the night train
Riding the long way home

As the train was heading North
I thought of all I've left behind
Who knows what crossed your mind
When your eyes crossed mine?
Did you leave someone dear?
Were you having second thoughts?
Out there, somewhere,
Was there someone calling your name?

Taking the night train
Riding the long way home

We never spoke, and never will
It all happened in a dream
During that fleeting moment
And the world had passed away
In retrospect, how we connect
Is like that sparkle in the night
We leave so little trace
But a memory in the dark

Taking the life train
Riding the long way home
Taking the life train
Riding the long way home
