Lyrics

The train's gone, and I am standing alone.
I think of you and wonder if you think of me, too.
I'm back to the town that I was born in
To think of my life and to start it over with you.

Cause, you know, we've been in a maze of love
And we are losing control to get away.
Here I am walking on the hill in this town
Like in my childhood that seems like yesterday.

If you were here with me
You could feel the way I do now.
If you were here with me
You could see what I am looking for now.
