Lyrics

Outside my window the traffic is diamonds
Curved in a shape like the nape of your neck
Men are collectible action toys
And pretty soon you're gonna have the whole set

I know all there is to know about missing a train
Love in vain

I jump the railing to the Galaxy diner
With the moon in the sky I'm shining like a planet
All of your boyfriends read you like a book
Me I read it, but I didn't understand it
Still if you want somebody to blame...
Down where you live it's all twisted and narrow
And now your heart is too from all the justification

I know all there is to know about missing a train
Love in vain
Go ask anybody else I had and they'll tell you the same
Love in vain

It's the same old show and you're watching it go
Though you've seen it before
I was laughing how the crying had me down on the floor
It's not funny no more

Everyone else that I meet is a sideshow
This love is like the last love only more so

I know all there is to know about missing a train
Go ask anybody else I loved they'll tell you the same
Love in vain
