Another Monday morning
Another where she’s by herself
She packs her bags for leaving
She’s off to find somebody else
She just sits there waiting
Wondering why she’s on the train
Trees flashing by the window
Thoughts crashing though her brain

All she wanted
To find someone else
All she wanted
To find someone else

He’s sitting at his desk
Been sitting there for what seems like an age
Got to get his shit together
He’s staring at the same damn page
He’s sitting on the platform
Sweat is dripping down his back
He can feel anticipation
The train is rushing down the track

All he wanted
To find someone else
All he wanted
To find someone else

She’s stepping off the train
She’s shaking, electric is in the air
He’s searching through the faces
He catches a flash of long blond hair
He’s running down the platform
He’s shouting, the people like a stream
She turns and then she see’s him
She pours herself on him like a dream

And all she wanted
To find someone else
All she wanted
To find someone else
