Hawley, Richard - Midnight Train Lyrics

I know it's time to travel it's
The thing that takes a life
I remember knowing who I am
Maybe it'll be alright
But I've got to leave it here
I've got to leave you here

I know I gave no reasons
And nothing here is clear
But what it is I'm feeling oh
It's giving me the fear
I've got to head away
I've got to get away

It's time that I was leaving as those
Shadows fall on the midnight train

In time you know I'd leave you running
I just don't fit the world
This is something that I've tried
But it just don't work
Is there some other way
Oh is there another way?

I can't explain the reason
I just don't feel alright
I know I've tried to smile and wave
But I've got no fight
Left in me babe
No not in me babe

It's time that I was leaving as those
Shadows fall on the midnight train
The midnight train

And even as we roll away
The weight begins to fall
I didn't leave in hope for you
I just hurried down the hall
There's no other way
There's no other way

It's time that I was leaving as those
Shadows fall on the midnight train
It's time that I was leaving as that
Whistle blows for the midnight train
Midnight train
The midnight train
On the midnight train
