How could I just look away?
Didn't wanna stare, but the air was filled with curiosity, yeah
And what a surprise it was to me
That you returned a friendly smile as perfect as a daydream

So I said "What's your name?
and where you going to?
and what's a girl like you
doing in this great big city?"

She said "I don't know.
One day I just got in my car and drove
and didn't stop til I was here."

Oh yeah? Well, (Subway Lady,)
Why don't you come around? come around?
I used to see you on the L train heading crosstown
(Did you change your destination?)
I don't know, no, I can't say
But my ride home now just ain't the same since you rode away

And every day we spend in the week
We would talk about anything that we could find to pass the time
And in my mind it was meant to be
But it goes to show that you never know where love is gonna grow a seed

It's all the same
When you're in love you can feel every drop of rain
Even staring outside a window pane
If you're standing on 52nd street
Top of the Empire State
It's all the same
'Cause I know I still feel the same
Yes I do

(Subway lady,)
Why don't you come around? come around?
I used to see you on the L train heading crosstown
(Did you change your destination?)
I don't know, no, I can't say
But my ride home now just ain't the same, no

(Whatever became of you?)
Did you turn out right?
Did you find what you're looking for?
Well I sure hope so, but I wish you didn't have to go, no, no
How many times can you feel that kind of pain
and you still have love to spare for next time?
Well, maybe next time, Subway Lady

(Subway lady)
Why don't you come around?
I used to see you all the time, girl, yes I do
(Did you change your destination?)
Did you move up town for good?
My ride home ain't the same
Where'd you go, girl?

(Things ain't been the same since you went away from me)
(Subway Lady, why don't you come around?)
Whatever happened to my Subway Lady?
(Did you change your destination?)
Did you move up town for good?

Come on girl, I wondered, where'd you go
(Subway Lady, why don't you come around?)
Whatever happened to my Subway Lady?
(Did you change your destination?)
Did you move up town for good?
My ride home ain't the same

(Subway lady, why don't you come around?)
Why don't you, baby?
(Did you change your destination?)
