Missed the Train

Written by Doug Harvey


It’s midnight on the rails
And I can’t seem to sleep
‘Cause I keep thinking about you
And the love that ran so deep

Don’t know where I been
Don’t know where I’m goin’ to
I’m just putting the miles between
This old broken heart and you

I missed the train when I left you
I missed the chance to see us through
And we can never go back to the way it was,
Because… I missed the train

Staring out the window
The darkness rolls on by
The memories never seem to fade
No matter how hard I try

Don’t know what I’ve done
Don’t know what I’m gonna do
I know that I’m just running away
from the love I feel for you

Standing outside in the pouring rain
A ray of light in that Southern storm
Like an angel sent from up above
I knew your love would keep me warm

Once I got to Arkansas
I figured out what I should do
Took the next train back to Memphis
Heading home to be with you

Can you ever forgive me?
Will you understand?
I was a fool, so afraid of love
It’s not what I had planned
