Yes, I saw you at the station

Long distance smiles

You were leaving for the weekend

Catching the 4:55

With your new friend for the season

Another sad-eyed clown

Helping to see

That your fantasies go down


And I have to wonder to myself

Why you have to go so far

Drifting with life's daydreams

Trying to play the star


I have still remembered when you said

"Baby now let's get away"

And I follow you like a schoolboy

I guess that's part of the game


Now you call me say you're sorry

Give me long distance love

You say you'd like to see me

Maybe just for a while


And you meet me at a station

There on platform nine

And we'd leave for the weekend

Riding the 4:55


But I play this scene too many times

To ever feel the part again

I don't really want to fake it

I already know the end

So bye-bye Cin-Cinderella

Everything just has to change

And the midnight blues are calling

I guess that's part of the game
