There's a little girl out lying on her own
She's got a broken heart
She's not the kind to take you down for long
She knows and plays it smart

And if she's coming, she's shown no more
She's heard no whistle blowing from the door
She feels like leaving and don't know why
Without no bridges she's trapped, so i sigh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying lying on the other side
All your life you were on your own

If you want you can ride my train
Soon forget the reason that you're leaving
Lose yourself and then sometimes
Maybe even save yourself some grieving

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying lying on the other side
All your life you were on your own

If you want you can ride my train
Soon forget the reason that you're leaving
Lose yourself and then sometimes
Maybe even save yourself some grieving

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying lying on the other side
All your life you were on your own
