Early this morning
when you kissed me goodbye
you said, "Don't wait up for me tonight."
I felt awful
and I wish to God
that I'd had a chance to brush my teeth
well, it's a shame
the mercury
is trapped inside
this thermometer's case
it will never
be free again
never again

Sometimes
when the afternoon train pulls away
like in a dream
you wish could go
on and on all night
I am alone
and you'll have to
force him to eat
the lunch you prepared so long ago

Early this morning
when you kissed me goodbye
you said, "Don't wait up for me tonight."
So I didn't
I went straight up to bed
I guess I need to sleep a bit more than you
I had a dream
so trivial and tedious
it would be a disgrace
if I ever
met you again
never again

Sometimes
when the afternoon train pulls away
like in a dream
you wish could go
on and on all night
I am alone
and you'll have to
force him to eat
the lunch you prepared so long ago

Sometimes
when the afternoon train pulls away
like in a dream (like in a dream)
you wish could go
on and on all night
I am alone (I am alone)
and you'll have to
force him to eat
the lunch you prepared so long ago
