I've just boarded the train
And yet you're still so near
I can see you through the window pane
But I wish you were here

I'm sorry I got a tad sick
And lost my ticket twice
Even though I have these flaws
Somehow I still suffice

And it's been about five minutes now
Since I saw you last
But I just wanna make sure you know
The time we had was a blast

Do you remember Central Park
And walking through Times Square?
Do you remember when you turned around fast
And hit me with your hair?

Because I remember every moment
And it's still melted in my brain

I feel a lot less woozy now
Oh hey it's been an hour
There's a guy sitting next to me
His expression is kinda sour

To be fair, I choose to sit
Right next to the guy,
Stealing his solitude,
But he can take mine.

Cuz I miss sitting on your couch
Right next to you
Even when your friends interrupt
Us watching Doctor Who

The other guy just left his seat
And I know it won't be long
Til I'm back with my family
And I'll be ending this song

But our story's far from over
I hope you know that
Whenever you wanna talk
Hit me up on Facebook chat
(or any other means of communication really)
