That midnight train is a long and a slow one 
your seat is reserved- the brakeman is tired 

the timetables set with exceptions for no one 

No luggage allowed no ticket required. 


It will be there right on time at the station

Even if midnight must come at high noon. 

You will not know that train's destination 

And you'll not leave late nor one minute too soon. 

 

You may sit beside Fear and go worse than lonely 

Or travel with Trust with love and faith restored

These choices you have And these choices only 

When that train rolls in, and you step aboard.  


Now that whistle blows, yes it's already whining 

If you listen close you can hear it soft and clear

And that headlight burns, yes its already shinin'

And you might as well choose right now, it's love or fear.
