I'm sitting on a southbound train
Staring at the sky
I'm thinking of my childhood
And I'm trying not to cry
While a stranger sleeps against me
And it feels like I'm his wife
Towns and cities flutter past
Like the pages of my life
My heart is on the baggage rack
It's heavy as can be

I wish that I could find someone
Who would carry it for me
Just to pay it some attention
And to handle it with care
