She put her life upon a postcard
and sent in the early mail
and caught the first train as it left the station
his girl has gone but he was still standing there

Our loving spanned across an ocean
and well beyond the great divide
I took no chances going through the motion
I'd talk to myself and just pass the time

Take me home
I'm going on that train
On your own
Yeah, you're fading

She threw her bag under the table
Had a drink and talked a while
and when the question came
'Would you like to join me?'
'If no one knows, I don't think I'd mind'

Take me home
Going on that train
On your own
Yeah, you're fading

I guess it was an hour before the sunrise
I'll make another call to ease my mind
When you're in his arms you will be holding
A knife to my heart
another one in my mind, no

Woke up early in the morning
as he leaves to take her home
Her voice is clear, it fills him with resentment
'So sorry man, I told you, don't walk the line'

(x2)
Take me home
I'm going on that train
On your own
Yeah, you're fading
