lyrics

They say lightning never strikes in the same place twice
But it did last night, right here
And now we're on a northbound train
Watching time slowly disappear

The girl on the train had a familiar name
And she regretted letting go
Of someone who was not quite me
And now everybody knows

The others may have turned away
And claimed she didn't care
But I know she only needed
Someone to agree that life's not fair

There was a man
You had eight long years to meet him
What made you hesitate? Was it cold feet?
You had plans
For the evening and for life
But neither has turned out the way you'd like
You need a change, but you don't know what or how
So tell me all about it, dear
We've got time now

You stayed together for the kids, like your parents did
What a life to wind up with
Staring out of the window
Knowing in your heart something's gotta give

You know he can't be as happy as he seems
All the pictures must be lies
He's still the same, he hasn't changed
You can tell, you see it in his eyes

The others may have turned away
And claimed she didn't care
But I know she only needed
Someone to agree that life's not fair

There was a man
You had eight long years to meet him
What made you hesitate? Was it cold feet?
You had plans
For the evening and for life
But neither has turned out the way you'd like
You need a change, but you don't know what or how
So tell me all about it, dear
We've got time now
We've got time now
We've got time now
