Rudy's on a train to nowhere, halfway down the line
He don't wanna get there, but he needs time
He ain't sophisticated, nor well-educated
After all the hours he wasted, still he needs time

He needs time, he needs a time for livin'
He needs time for someone just to see him
He ain't had no lovin' for no reason or rhyme
And the whole world's above him

Well, it's not as though he's fat
No, there's more to it than that
See he tried to play it cool
Wouldn't be nobodys fool

Rudy thought that all good things comes to those that wait
But recently he could see that it may come but too late, too late, too late

All through your life, all through the years
Nobody loved, nobody cared
So dim the light, dark are your fears
Try as I might, I can't hold back the tears

How can you live without love, it's not fair?
Someone said give but I just didn't dare, I didn't dare, I didn't dare
What good advice are you waiting to hear?
Hearing's alright for them that's all there, hearing's alright

You better not
You'd better gain control now
You'd better show 'em all now
You'd better make or break now

You'd better give and take now
You'll have to push and shove now
You'll have to find some love now
You'd better gain control now

Now he's just come out the movie
Numb of all the pain
Sad but in a while he'll soon be
Back on his train
