Before I leave town today
Well, thereís something
That I wanna say
That you regret the stormy night
You put your eyes on me

Well, you cheated on me
And you lied
And I mustíve had that
A thousand times
But Iíll be cominí back one day
Just you wait and see

Oh, yeah, let it ride, let it ride
Let it slip, let it slide
Ride the night away
Let it ride, let it ride
Let it slip, let it slide
ĎCause Iíll be coming back to stay

This time you couldíve let me live
But thereís nothing more
That I can give
Youíve stolen every day in my life
And then you threw it away

This train Iím gonna ride tonight
Is gonna carry me
Right out of your sight
But Iíll be cominí back some time
And then youíre gonna pay

Oh wonít you take me tonight
Wonít you carry me right to the top
Taking me higher
You carry me through
The things that you know
To the end of the line
How much higher?

The last lap is mine
Itís too long as they say
You know itís just what will be
As youíve waviní goodbye
Keep rememberiní why
The devil that got you was me

Youíre the city where
I wanted to be
But the lonely spell you put on me
Itís time for you to realise
That thereís just no way
