10,000 Maniacs - Girl on a Train Lyrics

10,000 Maniacs Love Among the Ruins cover art

Waking on a train dreaming,
Charmed alone they started speaking.
Captured in his artist way
Before the memories fade away.

To remember a face,
And you're home or want to.

Certain they would meet soon,
Paint a portrait of a family.

Single light on, single way,
Single light away.

The night fell.
Saw a painting on the stairwell
To mourn the passing of a daughter dear.
Her soul upon the train
So far so near.
Just close your eyes and you're home.
