Eastbound Train Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It was at New Cross Station, I was going on home
Saw you get your ticket, standing on your own
Here come the train about 02:44
I couldn't get a smoker, you took another car

Yeah, the end of the line we both had to change
And you're standing right behind me, I'm a feeling kinda strange
We got to Mile End Road, my heart skipped a beat
Standing right behind me, I'm a shakin' in my seat

3 4 minutes and the train comes through
I'm ridin' on the Central, I'm lookin' at you

Woman on the eastbound train
Sometimes I wanna see you again

Now I couldn't read a paper, you couldn't read a book
Kept on taking me another look
You got off the train, you never looked behind
I tried, but I can't get you out of my mind

Woman on the eastbound train
Sometimes I wanna see you again

Well, I got one more thing I wanna say before I go
If you get the message on the radio
You can write a letter, get in touch with me
Leave your number with the company, yeah

Woman on the eastbound train
Sometimes I wanna see you again
