Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors


Stand clear of the closing doors
This train is going down a one way track
And no amount of sorrow is gonna turn it back

She was joyful on the day he met her
Seemed joyful when he said goodbye
She would have shown him more if he had let her
He never saw those tear dimmed eyes
Instead of making money he could've been making love
How she wept when he had gone
Prayed for her death to the stars above, stars above

Stand clear of the closing doors
This train is going down a one way track
And no amount of sorrow is gonna turn it back
You don't know when you leave the price you'll have to pay
Sometimes it takes the darkness to feel thankful for the day, thankful for the day

He knew his mistake a few days too late
Took the first train headed back
Separated from the one he loved by a ribbon of railroad track
If she could only know that whistle blow would bring her baby home
But she was in the dress from the day they'd met
As they lowered her coffin down

So stand clear stand clear of the closing doors
Stand clear stand clear
