Straight to You

Wherever you are…is home.

This train, rocking me gently,
glides on metal rails
that will not take me to you
and so I ride until
I reach the ocean,
and a crossing
dangerous and blue

This train, only goes so far
and now I’m aboard for love
I’ll never go back
I’ll stay on course
for I must hold you
though the sea will end this track

Now, I’m flying, I’m floating, I’m rising, I’m soaring,
my heart’s above the water
headed home, love,
straight to you
I’m flying, I’m floating, I’m rising, I’m soaring,
I’m heading home now,
straight to you.

I know you will be waiting
when my loyal heart
has crossed this ocean so vast
we’ll lie in sunlit fields of tall grass
and I’ll hold your face at last

Yes, I’m flying, I’m floating, I’m rising, I’m soaring,
my heart’s above the water
headed home, love, straight to you.
I’m flying, I’m floating, I’m rising, I’m soaring,
I’m heading home now,
straight to you.

I know you will be waiting
when my loyal heart
has crossed this ocean so vast
we’ll lie in sunlit fields of tall grass
and I’ll kiss your lips,
my sweetest love,
at last.

This train, rocking me gently,
glides on metal rails
that will not take me to you
but I will ride until I reach that ocean,
and my flight, straight home, my love, to you
straight to you
straight to you

my heart flies
