Theme

This song is about two lovers who have been apart for some time. The woman is on a train, nervous and excited to see her boyfriend.

She does know, however, that she belongs with him.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Traveling north, traveling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll say when I find you
Call out your name love, don't be surprised

[Chorus]
It's so many miles and so long since I've left you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

[Verse 2]
Nothing at all in my head to say to you
Only the beat of the train the I'm on
Nothing I've learnt all my life on the way to you
Only our love that's over and gone

[Chorus]
It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

[Bridge]
What will I do if there's someone there with you?
Maybe someone you've always known
How do I know I can come and give to you?
Love with no warning and find you alone

[Outro]
It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long
It won't be long, it won't be long, it won't be long
