Today I went and bought myself a bottle,
Like we used to do,
Reminded me of you.
Today I saw a train roll by the river,
Blowing off the steam,
Reminded me of me.

That's when I threw the bottle in the river.
That's when I started running for the train.
There's nothing that you need I can't deliver,
Carry me away, carry me away.

Make it seven o nine California time,
Whoever said it was a small world was either a liar or a fool,
Cause it's not true.

And any promise we make is as easy to break
As the plastic people on a wedding cake so says you
But you know, I do.

I hear you thinking,
From far away.
If ya keep lying and crying and trying and drinking,
I'm gonna carry me away, carry me away.
If you think about me,
From far away,
I hope you find it with me or without me.

Carry me away, carry me away,
Carry me away, carry me away,
Carry me away, carry me away.
