"Commuter Love" as written by and Neil Hannon....
Freezing Monday morning
She is waiting for her train to come
I brush past her, smell her perfume
Watch her hair move as she turns to go
She doesn't know I exist
I'm gonna keep it like this
I'm not gonna take any risks this time

She's not like the others
With their papers and their headphones on
She reads novels by French authors with loose morals
She can do no wrong
I wouldn't say I'm obsessed
I don't want to see her undressed
We can be prince and princess in my dream
And we're dancing
Through the evening
'Til the morning

She doesn't know I exist
I'm gonna keep it like this
I'm not gonna take any risks this time

    General CommentIs this song an innocent story about a guy who fancies a girl on his train . . . . or is there a darker back story?

    "I'm gonna keep it like this. I'm not gonna take any risks . . . . THIS TIME" and then IT progresses to dramatic music.

    Has this guy got a history of stalking? Of blurting out his inner most feelings and scaring off women? Or anything worse?
