Sting - Twenty Five To Midnight Lyrics

Train I ride, don't be slow
If your whistle can blow
Tell them I'm coming back

Counting poles, counting sheep
Don't be slow, I won't weep
If your wheels on the line
Were to put me on time

Just a year to the day
Since I went upon my way
To seek my fortune and fame
Be a star, change my name

And that's it more or less
'Til this midnight express
I know I can't be late
'Cause she said, she won't wait

She'll just go marry Jack
So there's no turning back
And it's twenty-five to midnight

Band I had got a break
Just one chance we had to take
Told my girl I'd be back
Left her with my friend Jack

New York City for a spell
Things didn't turn out so well
Every dive that we played
We were lucky we got paid

Mr. Train driver, please
If your speed you increase
Every cent I have now
Will be yours this I vow

And that's it more or less
'Til this midnight express
I know I can't be late
'Cause she said, she won't wait

She'll just go marry Jack
So there's no turning back
And it's twenty-five to midnight

We called ourselves The Latino Lovers
Hawaiian shirts and top forty covers
I didn't think I could sink this low
When drugs and booze ate all my dough

This isn't how it was meant to be
There's no such thing as a meal that's free
If I was ever to get out alive
I have to get home on time

Train I ride, don't be slow
If your whistle can blow
Tell them I'm coming back

And that's it more or less
'Til this midnight express
I know I can't be late
'Cause she said, she won't wait

She'll just go marry Jack
So there's no turning back
And it's twenty-five to midnight

And it's twenty-five to midnight
