I'm sitting on a southbound train
I'm thinking of my childhood
While a stranger sleeps against me
Towns and cities flutter past
My heart is on the baggage rack

Who would carry it for me
And to handle it with care
And is in need of some repair
Some things I guess
To express
As I stare at the sky
And the sound, of goodbye
Maybe it's the autumn chill
Maybe I should wake the stranger
But, my eyes they would betray me
No, I must learn to wait my turn
