Crossing the Line

When I saw you on the platform there
Waiting patiently beside the sign
That indicated your train would be in a minutes time
My heart leapt a thousand times and back
I had to get across the track

My legs nearly buckled under strain
As I ran across to catch the train
Up a cast-iron mountain
And down the other side
My heart leapt a thousand times and back
I had to get across the track

As I descended to the platform floor
I could hear the sound of closing doors
And the whir of an engine starting up
My heart leapt a thousand times and back
My heart leapt a thousand times and back
I watched you head off down the track
And you didn’t look back
