Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride

I’m waiting at the station
Standing at the crossroads
Facing forward, back to the past
The breeze is blowing west
The sun is shining east

The train leaves at nine o five
This is an unscheduled stop
Buy the ticket, step on inside
You may not be here again
Punch the ticket, take the ride

I can’t tell you what’s ahead
Or even around the bend
I’m too old to take chances
This is too crazy to comprehend
But I believe in these circumstances

Use the ticket, take the ride
Punch the ticket, step on inside

I started on this road alone
Sooner or later, you’ll appear
From far, miles are no barrier
A siren sound draws me near
A train whistle only we can hear

The sky is calling your name
Whisper an answer to wind
Go walk between the raindrops
And step across the rainbow

It’s not a journey you asked for
But one I hope you’ll take
If I see you board the train
I will know what lies ahead

It’s up to you
Buy the ticket, take the ride
