lyrics

in my heart, there's a tunnel.
in that tunnel, there's a train.
it takes my blood through the darkness
to the white, final light in my brain.
it keeps me alive and thinking
but for what? i cant explain...

love is a train station -
who knows where we'll be taken?
love is a train station -
meet me there, i'll be waiting.

and this bench keeps me sitting
where the strangers are giving me the eye.
i need to find a new direction
but the thought of moving makes me cry.
my ticket tells me that im travelling
but it dont give a good reason why...

love is a train station -
who knows where we'll be taken?
love is a train station -
meet me there, i'll be waiting.

and every time i look out my window
i hope i spot someone like you.
im locked up in my tower like rapunzel
but i'd let my hair down
if the prince would just pass through.

before you, i was a child:
may face a mess, my boots too big.
you cleaned me up. then you scalped me;
made me a man, a man who wears a wig.
so knowledge is crashing rocket.
so faith is a leaky oil rig.

so love is a train station -
who knows where we'll be taken?
love is a train station -
meet me there, i'll be waiting.
