lyrics

you couldn’t see it from the train
but I kept waving ‘till you were worlds away
and yeah I’ve got a phone, yeah you’ve got one too
but you never said for sure if I’d ever hear from you

but I’ll keep a light on at the station
even though your track might not lead back to me
I’ll keep a light on at the station
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be

there was a time when you called me “love"
just that one time, but once was enough
and now I’m on the platform, heart in my hand
and I’ll keep it warm for as long as I can stand

and I’ll keep a light on at the station
even though your track might not lead back to me
I’ll keep a light on at the station
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be

all that coal thrown in the fire
all those whistles in the night
oh, it’s such a lonely sound
but I won’t be lonely, I’ll just be around

and I’ll keep a light on at the station
even though your track might not lead back to me
I’ll keep a light on at the station
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be
I’ll be your brakeman if you ask me to be
