  • It was New Cross Station, I was going on home
    Saw you get your ticket, standing on your own
    Here come the train about 02:44
    I couldn't get a smoker, you took another car

    Yeah, the end of the line, we both had to change,
    And you're standing right behind me,
    I'm a feeling kinda strange
    We got to Mile End Road, my heart skipped a beat,
    Standing right behind me, I'm a shakin' in my seat
    3-4 minutes and the train comes through,
    I'm ridin' on the Central, I'm a-lookin' at you.

    Woman on the eastbound train,
    Sometimes I wanna see you again.

    Now I couldn't read a paper, you couldn't read a book,
    Kept on taking me another look,
    You got off the train, you never looked behind
    I tried, but I can't get you out of my mind.

    Woman on the eastbound train,
    Sometimes I wanna see you again.

    Well I got one more thing I wanna say before I go
    If you get the message on the radio
    You can write a letter, get in touch with me,
    Leave your number with the company, yeah.

    Woman on the eastbound train,
    Sometimes I wanna see you again. Writer/s: MARK KNOPFLER
