lyrics

Down in the back seats football fans
Are loud with beer – full of boasts
This train’s no Transcontinental
But their team’s gone coast-to-coast
Across the aisle sits a blonde girl
In the groove with her headphones
She’s typing away like crazy
On her own but not alone
With this late-night limited express
Not stopping in the town where I live
I’ll need to take a taxi back home
When I’ll get there is anyone’s guess
That tall dude by the carriage door
He looks too cool to believe
There’s nothing to keep his arms warm
Except those tattoos for sleeves
Up the front one couple’s on fire
They’ve been joined lip to lip
Due to set a V-Line record
Kissing non-stop for the trip
With this late-night limited express
Not stopping in the town where I live
I’ll need to take a taxi back home
When I’ll get there is anyone’s guess

At this stage a child starts crying
On this late train heading east
Please go back to sleep, sweet baby
And let others rest at least

Right through there’s been this older man
With his pencil taking notes
Feeling lonely in such a crowd
Crossing out most rhymes he wrote
With this late-night limited express
Not stopping in the town where I live
I’ll need to take a taxi back home
When I’ll get there is anybody’s guess
I can’t say when I last felt so alone
As on this late train east – this last train home
I can’t say when I last felt so alone
As on this late train east – this last train home
