lyrics

i'm sitting by the window watching the scenes as they change
but this car is just rolling - there's no-one controlling this train
i wrote her name in the frost on the glass that hides the world outside we've both lost
and it happened in an instant but we both sat watching it dying
we pretended not to notice like everyone else at that time
but if you hear me repeating her name it's just one last prayer to keep me from feeling the pain

i know you look ready but i hear that you're new to this game
you can keep all your money because down here we're only gambling rain
and anything else that you save, well it's worth no more than the price you paid on your way
but a man up here told me that his biggest mistake was the help
he'd have done better with nobody, he'd have done much better by himself
but if you hear me repeating her name it's just one last prayer to keep me from feeling the pain

i'm sitting by the window watching the road slip away
i've no thought for tomorrow and i'm not even sure of today
but if i ever wasted your time, you could have it all back if i thought you'd take some of mine
but it happened in an instant but we both sat watching it dying
we pretended not to notice like everyone else at that time
but if you hear me repeating her name it's just one last prayer to keep me from feeling the pain
