Amtrak is for Lovers

No joke
she says, "I'll leave you, I'd never think to treat you like this
I can't believe it
I'll give you 3 more chances, then I'm gone for good."

She is reaching outer limits with him
he treads thin ice
so damn thin that he can sense the water at his feet
at the start he was a prince
who brought gifts wrapped and well thought
his lips needed no words
kisses told her everything

[Chorus]
No joke
she says, "I'll leave you, I'd never think to treat you like this
I can't believe it
I'll give you 3 more chances, then I'm gone for good."
He swears he's really worth it but has trouble showing it
"This routine is over" as he says to her
it hits her like a ton of bricks

Another weekend in the transit station
eyes glue to hands of the rushing clocks that won't wait for just anyone
she awaits the R2 patiently
with gifts clinched under arms for her lover that she misses oh so much right now

[Chorus]

Friday train rides
sitting next to suit and ties to work
six long hours cramped and crowded
her regrets can't quite be counted on both of her hands
but count on her goodbyes

[Chorus]
