Lyrics

How many times will I ride this train
Before it takes me where I wanna go?
The Southbound track, a different life
A warmer place for a heart growing cold
And she was a dreamer just like me
And I wonder when her rooster crowed?
You gotta wake up, you gotta get going
This life it ain’t your own no more
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me?
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me, baby?
So she raised her boys up to see the light
She held so tight, she wouldn’t let go
But you gotta let go, you gotta let go
As the golden hearts start to fade to black
She’s wondering
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me?
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me, baby?
And the ghost of former footfalls now been ringing on the phone
And some hearts they won’t recover from an empty nest syndrome
And one day the roles reversed
Who has to go, who has to stay?
But the grace you’ve tied to my name I’ll take with me always
As I ride on this train
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me?
Are you gonna come back?
Are you gonna come back to me, baby?
