(The Travelling To See Eva Song)

from by Better Than The Book



Bags packed, overexcited
Double check my pockets, got my keys and my wallet
Shoes on, rush out the front door
Running to the station, or I’ll miss my connection

But the train is delayed (That’s just my luck)
And I should have prepaid (These tickets cost a bomb)
But nothing puts a price on seeing your face

And I’m on my way right now
Counting down these last few hours
Another one hundred miles couldn’t keep me away from you
Without you, what would I do?

Hi, yes, on the train now
Should be there in an hour or so, I’ll update you as I go
Wait... say that again
I think the signal’s getting weaker here... Hello? Hello?

But my battery’s dead (Should have charged it before I left)
I hope she heard what I said (Bit late to worry about that now)
And now I can’t get this whole thing out of my head

And I know it’s been a while
But it’s just a few more miles
And all the land and the sea couldn’t keep me apart from you
Without you, what could I do?

And now the train is pulling in
To this long anticipated destination
And as it comes to a stop, I can’t wait to get off and find you
(The train now standing at platform 1 is the
14:02 service to the love of your life)

That’s when I know it’s been worthwhile
‘Cause it’s there I see your smile
And I run into your arms for a kiss and a hug from you
Without you, what would I do?
