Willows on a Train

I guess I know what you'e thinking
I guess you might be right
You do your part of the distance
It is not your turn to move
Nor mine
It was all set
And even so
It has been filling my mind
Those days did go
Like willows on a train
And in the rain they'll dry
They did go
Like willows on a train
Without their river they'll dry
Would you do it over
Trade a heart for a song
Take the three days of moonlight
And then nothing for so long
It was all set
And even so
There has been days to fill
How many times
You opened that door
Like it was breathing your will
Would you do it over,
Now you're on the other side
In the land I write and dream of
Untouchable and out of sight
It was all set
And even so
Their picture sweet and kind
As distance works for days and sun
I got attached to them at night
