Five Minutes on a Train

Five minutes on a train
Five minutes still remain
You’re alone just sitting there
With that cold forgetful stare
In this Five minutes on a train

Thought my life a doggone shame
When all I knew was your name
Now I’m going to my happy home
This different life I’ve always known
But there’s five minutes on a train

One request in this refrain
One request still remains
Don’t you stare in back of me
Pretending that you just don’t see
We’ve got Five minutes on a train

Fire burning where there’s none
But a past that’s just begun
I often wonder about them miracles
There’s some that are too plentiful
In this Five minutes on a train

There’s just one question on my brain
Before I start to go insane
Do you see a different me
I’m not that chump I used to be
In this Five minutes on a train

Stay not too far away
Wish for another day
The reasons why we didn’t last
Are poison in the aftermath
of this Five minutes on a train

And your cold, dark alchemy
Put a long, black spell on me
In this Five minutes on a train
