There's a girl sleeping in my bed
She provided bittersweet company

It's gonna take a train to pull me through
Is all that I hoped that she might be
And as I let her warm her feet on me
That I wanted you to be my wife

I've just whispered your name in her ear
It's gonna take a train to pull me through
Some brief distraction from your memory
And as I ask her how she takes her tea

I wish you were her
