"Train Songs" as written by and Lisa A Loeb....
won’t you wait for me on the platform
where the plaid coats wait?
won’t you wait for me on the platform
where the plaid coats wait?
cause I’ve been with you, and in your state
you’re pliable, just a dead weight on me

once I liked you, I liked you a lot
you were everything, you were everything I’d got
now you’re poker-faced, like in a parking lot
and I could pay you a dollar just to holler a lot.
once I liked you, I liked you a lot

and you gave wonderful hugs
when I was with you
you gave wonderful hugs
when I was with you

in the slow mist, it wasn’t an admirable trait
you were dancing with another
you were standing so straight
she was like a pipe dream, not a bad position
she had long legs, had big breasts
she was an apparition

with tempestuous eyes
we said our goodbyes
pulse stopped, was petrified
I saw you as you sat down and cried
do you feel down under?
that’s the end of your lies

can’t you capture a cultivated whim?
no, you can stick in your toe
but you can’t jump right in
cause you say you’ve happened
but I know better
you can’t right this wrong now
cause I’ve met her

and you gave wonderful hugs
when I was with you
you gave wonderful hugs
when I was with you
when I was with you
but now, she’s with you
