So there's a man and a woman
and they're on a train
they're travelling across an entire country
just two bags between them
looking for something

They're looking for a reason why everything they loved started to fade away
They know each other so well now, they don't ever really need to talk
They just look out of the train windows
look at the countryside rolling past them
look at the frozen winter fields.
They don't really know what they're looking for
but they'll know it when they see it.

They don't talk much.
They hold hands
and look out the window.

They've been on the train for a long time now
The farmers are burning the chaff out in the fields
There's smoke in the air
and the sun's so low on the horizon, it looks like it's setting fire to the
And they still haven't found anything.
And the train's still rolling.
So they hold hands
and they wait.
