I’m getting off this train of mine,
I don’t like where it’s going.
I’m feeling hurt and very sad,
I really feel like crying.
I thought that we would be together,
Down every road of life.
But now you say you’re set in your ways,
And will not leave your wife.
Why do you feel that way, I think,
And why can’t you be with me?
This train is going that-a-way,
I’m jumping off you see.
The tracks are heading towards the west,
I should be going east.
The train is whistling in the night,
I wish my love could cease.
Forever, Tom, I’ll love you true,
But can’t go on like this.
I’ll try and keep going through life,
I will always remember your kiss.
