She was standin' near the railroad track when she first flagged me down
I was drivin' outta town
All alone

Her face held every feelin' in but her eyes gave her away
One look and you would say
No way home

Walkin' through an airport lounge
Somewhere way off in Spain
Through a scratchy intercom it came
Loud and clear...

[Chorus:]
You're worn and used and you can't talk
Your flight has been postponed, now you must walk
Straight up that hill now you must push your own rock

The iceberg cut into the hull while the captain rang the bell
How he went down, who could tell?
Cold as ice

Beneath the waves the ocean liner sank into the sand
You still could hear the band
Auld Lang Syne

Out in space their orbit then just started to decay
She was burnin' up the atmosphere
Burn away

[Chorus]
