That midnight train is a long and a slow one
Your seat is reserved, the brakeman is tired
Timetable’s set with exceptions for no one
No luggage allowed, no ticket required

It will be there right on time at the station
Even if midnight must come at high noon
You will not know that train's destination
And you'll not leave late nor one minute too soon

You may sit beside fear and go worse than lonely
Or travel with trust and love and faith restored
These choices you have and these choices only
When that train rolls in and you step on board

Now that whistle blows, yes, it’s already whinin'
If you listen close, you can hear it soft and clear
And that headlight burns, yes, it's already shinin'
And you might as well choose right now
It's love or fear, it's love or fear
