Destiny was the Homecoming queen
This came to no one’s surprise
Prettiest girl you’ve ever seen
With a heart as bright as her eyes
Destiny loved this boy named Tom
He seemed to treat her well
But underneath was ticking bomb
Something no one could tell

Destiny had a fistful of dreams
"I’ll reach them all", she once said
She gave them up at least so it seemed
To marry Tom instead
Destiny watched the years pass her by
As Tom began to abuse
All she could do is sit and cry
Nursing her latest bruise

One night she came across her old scrapbook
With a picture of her being crowned
One look was all that it took to turn her life around
She took the Sunday train to get away from the pain
She started over again
Became the things she should have been
So hold on to your dreams it’s never as bad as it seems
Just let your worries fly away
Hop on your Sunday train and seize the day

Jeremy was a shooting star
With the will to succeed
Oh, how he loved to play his guitar
It was all he’d ever need
Jeremy loved his rock and roll
He played it everyday
Nobody thought he’d sell his soul
Become rocks old cliche

Jeremy had a fist full of dreams
"I’ll reach them all", he once said
He gave them up at least so it seems
To get strung out instead
Jeremy watched the years pass him by
As he began to abuse
All he could do was sit and sigh
Reach for his bottle of booze

One night he came across his old guitar
He was awoken by it’s wondrous sound
Since that night he’s seen the bright light
He’s turned his life around
He took the Sunday train to get away from the pain
He started over again
Became the things he should have been
So hold on to your dreams
It’s never as bad as it seems
Just let your worries fly away
Hop on your Sunday train and seize the day

They took the Sunday train to get away from the pain
They started over again
Became the things they should have been
So hold on to your dreams
It’s never as bad as it seems
Just let your worries fly away
Hop on your Sunday train and seize the day
