Love came knocking one day at my window
I turned my head and looked the other way
A whisper in my head told me I should know
Love is an imaginary day

I fell into her arms down at the station
She said that whistle's moan I should ignore
My soul tells me to travel across the nation
But I can't drive that midnight train no more

Oh, I can't drive that midnight train no more
Her hypnotic power has closed that lonely door
I was following those crazy tracks but I'm not sure what for
And I can't drive that midnight train no more

She holds me close when fear drifts in the window
It tells me to let go but hold on strong
But being free was always my desire
But I learned freedom is here in this home

Today a boy came tugging on my pant leg
He said, "Dad, come on, let's go outside and play
As I was wrestling him, the wind was whispering
The road is an imaginary way

Oh, I can't drive that midnight train no more
Her hypnotic power has closed that lonely door
I was following those crazy tracks but I'm not sure what for
And I can't drive that midnight train no more
Now I can't drive that midnight train no more
I can't drive that midnight train no more
