There's a man in the station and a train in the rain
There's a face in the mirror that's showing the strain

There's a piece of my head that's asking why
There's a piece of my heart that's dying to fly

But it's alright, I'm catching the next train home
Next train home

There's a man in the station and a train in the rain
There's a face in the mirror that's showing the strain
There's a woman in the dark that's standing apart
There's a love in the man that's breaking his heart
But it's alright, I'm catching the next train home
Next train home
