"Last Train Home" as written by Ryan Kulchinsky, Ryan Kulchinsky, Max Collins and Matt Serletic....
You haven't changed.
Stand in the light,
I need to see you,
Uncover my eyes.

The tears coming down,
Making lines on your face.
One for each year, now
That you've been away.

We were only kids,
We ran like water.
Your dad said,
Stay away from my daughter.
The sun was coming down when I said,
Can't you just believe?

And if you wait for me,
I'll be the light in the dark if you lose your way.
And if you wait for me,
I'll be your voice when you don't know what to say.
I'll be your shelter,
I'll be your fate.
I'll be forever,
Wait for me.

I'll be the last train,
I'll be the last train home.

You were a storm,
It blew us away.
I wouldn't leave you,
But you couldn't stay.

We were only kids,
We ran like water.
Your dad said,
Stay away from my daughter.
The sun was coming down when I said,
Can't you just believe?

And if you wait for me,
I'll be the light in the dark if you lose your way.
And if you wait for me,
I'll be your voice when you don't know what to say.
I'll be your shelter,
I'll be your fate.
I'll be forever,
Wait for me.

I'll be the last train,
I'll be the last train home.

We were only kids,
We ran like water.
I told your dad,
I love your daughter.
The sun was coming down when I said,
Hallie just believe.

And if you wait for me,
I'll be the light in the dark if you lose your way.
And if you wait for me,
I'll be your voice when you don't know what to say.
I'll be your shelter,
I'll be your fate.
I'll be forever,
Wait for me.

I'll be the last train,
I'll be the last train,
Hold on to love,
And wait for me.

I'll be the last train,
I'll be the last train home.

I'll be the last train,
I'll be your last train home.

    My InterpretationThe singer has finally found his lost love again and she is emotional upon seeing him.

    "The tears coming down,
    Making lines on your face.
    One for each year, now
    That you've been away."

    Family problems split them apart ("Stay away from my daughter"), and the guy thought that she should "believe" in what they had. It seems that he didn't stay away, but she pushed him instead.

    "Your dad said,
    Stay away from my daughter.
    The sun was coming down when I said,
    Can't you just believe?"

    "And if you wait for me ... I'll be the last train home."

    I read this as that he's given her one more chance, but it's his "last" one. He lists all of the things he can do for her, he can be the "light" in the "darkness" and "be her voice". He's giving her the opportunity to choose him over the problems her father is causing and he can bring her back to a comfortable place. But it's leaving soon, and he won't be there forever to take her back.

    "We were only kids,
    We ran like water."

    I love these lines, but I find them difficult to interpret. So, they were young and in love and they had a constant stream of emotions flowing from them, or perhaps it's like tears. Eventually although a stream seems like it's flowing forever, one day it stops suddenly, from a pouring to a trickle.

    "I told your dad,
    I love your daughter.
    The sun was coming down when I said,
    Hallie just believe."

    He gathers the courage to tell the father that he "loves [his] daughter" no matter what, and he'll be her "last train home". If he can be brave to the father, who broke them up in the first place, then she should as well. He wants her to "believe" so that when he comes back, as the last train home, he can whisk her away. If she doesn't, he'll leave without her, going home alone.
