    Lyrics

    The lady stands before the open window
    Staring so far away
    She can almost feel the southern wind blow
    Almost touching her restless days

    She turns from the window to me
    A sad smile, her apology
    Sad eyes reaching for the door

    Daylight loses to another evening
    And still she spares me the word goodbye
    She sits alone beside me fighting her feelings
    She struggles to speak but in the end can only cry

    Suddenly, it's so hard to find
    The words that would help her speak her troubled mind
    I'm offering these to her as if to be kind

    There's a train everyday, leaving either way
    There's a train everyday, leaving either way
    There is a world you know
    There is a way to go, there is a world you know
    And we'll soon be gone , it's just as well
    This is my opening farewell

    A child's drawing on the table
    A woman's silk lying on the floor
    And I would keep them here if I were able
    To lock them safe behind my open door

    Suddenly it's so clear to me
    I've asked her to see what she may never see
    Now my kind words find their way back to me

    There is a train everyday, leaving either way
    There is a train everyday, leaving either way
    There is a train everyday, leaving either way
    There is a train everyday, leaving either way
    There is a world you know
    There is a way to go, there is a world you know
    And we'll soon be gone , it's just as well
    This is my opening farewell
