The thunder cracks against the night The dark explodes with yellow light The railroad sign is flashing bright The people stare but I don't care My flesh is cold against my bones My Cheryl's going home
Come hear me shout against the rain Is there a way to stop this train I got some reasons to explain About the way I was today The whistle moans and I'm alone My Cheryl's going home
Santa Rose Special's down the line I'm running desperately behind There's only one thing on my mind The rain and tears are in my eyes The things I have to say won't be known My Cheryl's going home

Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
