about

You are not the same people who left that station
Or who will arrive at any terminus
While the narrowing rails slide together behind you
(TSE)

lyrics

Telegraph poles keep passing by
Cable looping in a hazy sky
Great North Eastern in the rain
Never thought I'd be back here again
But tonight...
This station with the name I still remember
Is a place I'm passing through

Take me home again... been too long on my own
Take me home again... still living all alone
Take me home again... to the place I used to go
Take me home again... to a face I used to know
When love was just a heartbeat away

Tonight, tonight...
Tonight, tonight...

High wind howling, fallen slate
Scuttle and ashpan in the grate
Wick on the kelly lamp burning bright

Wait till your Daddy gets home tonight
But tonight...
This station with a name I still remember
Is a place I'm passing through

Take me home again... to the place I still recall
Take me home again... want to walk in through the door
Take me home again... to the place I used to go
Take me home again... to a face I used to know
When love was just a heartbeat away
