Lyrics

Looks like I?ll be home late again.
If I?m lucky I?ll catch the last train, going to Elwyn.
Got so much work to do don?t know where to begin.
Tomorrow I promise I?ll take you to some place you?ve never been.

My window?s caked with the city?s dirt.
I can still see the neighborhoods and the lights on in the kitchens.
Some of those houses I know are filled with pain.
Tomorrow I promise I?ll take you to some place you?ve never been.

And the train conductor says,
get under your seats my friends,
cause there?s something up ahead,
and I do believe it?s the end.

Step off the train into her arms.
Ain?t never seen nothin? more beautiful, nothing so warm.
Shining brighter than I?ve ever seen.
Tonight I?m gonna take you out some place you?ve never been.

And the train conductor says,
get under your seats my friends,
cause there?s something up ahead,
and I do believe it?s the end.
