As he sat down upon the train
Silence settled in his brain
Reached out his hand and touched her hair

He struggled with the same old thought
Should he tell her, should he not
He felt her presence everywhere

Whatever comes between us
Dont let it stand in your way
This is what hed come here just to say

She just smiled and read a book
Gave him such a gentle look
He felt a pain right through his chest

He pictured back to when they met
Open door on a movie set
Her brown eyes took his breath

And every word she spoke to him
Went like a bullet to his heart
Thats the way its been right from the start

Now theyre off, searching in vain
Out of control just like a runaway train
Cant see that its not up to them
Soon just like a river theyll be back home again

He sat up through the hours it takes
Passing through the northern lakes
'Til the sleeping giant was in his sight

He knew that shed been drifting some
Wondered where his faith had gone
He stayed awake most of the night

Whatever makes you happy
I wont stand in your way
Words you hope you never have to say

Now theyre off, searching in vain
Out of control, just like a runaway train
Cant see that its not up to them
Soon just like a river theyll be back home again

She watched him toss and try to sleep
Struggle with his demons deep
She thought of all that theyd been through

Imagining her life alone
Nowhere he was, that was home
She wondered if he knew

That every word he spoke to her
Went like a bullet to her heart
Thats the way its been right from the start

Now theyre off, searching in vain
Out of control just like a runaway train
Cant see that its not up to them
Soon just like a river theyll be back home again

Now theyre off, searching in vain
Out of control just like a runaway train
Cant see that its not up to them
Soon just like a river theyll be back home again
