I'm sitting on the westbound train.
What a way to start the day,
She's got pennies in her pocket book,
Such a pretty girl and I can't help but look.
Pretty girl with your eyes so blue,
How I can't take my eyes off of you.
Where you from, what's your story?
Saying, "Boys like you, they're no good for me."
Then she told me to

Take time, to sort out your money.
Take time, to think a place to go.
Live life, anyway you want,
But just make sure nobody else gets hurt.

My heart went from curious to blue,
So I got up. As I walked away
She said, "Boy, I guess I'm sorry,
You're more than welcome to stay.
I've just been a little blue,
Too many boys saying 'I can't take my eyes off of you'."
Well I guess I'm sorry too,
I know it wasn't my place to intrude.
Then I told her to

Think twice, before you start running.
Think twice, to think a place to go.
Live life, anyway you want,
But just make sure nobody else gets hurt.

Now I'm slipping in between the cracks,
Wondering, is this feeling just a patch?
And as she told me why she came and left,
We both looked up as someone said,
"Excuse me can I clip your ticket?
You both are looking kind of suspicious.
I'm not that bright but I'm not blind,
It looks like you both have been taking your time,
Sitting back, sorting out your money,
I wonder did you think twice about running?"

Well mister, I don't understand.
I heard these tracks would take us to the promise land.
I sank into my seat as he walked away,
Looked back at her in time to hear him say...

Take time, to sort out your money.
Take time, to think a place to go.
Live life, anyway you want,
But just make sure nobody else gets hurt.

And I know the road gets long,
And I know the road gets hard
When the midnight hour is falling hard.
Just make sure nobody else gets hurt.

Stepping off the westbound train,
Smiling she says, "I guess Heaven can wait."
