The whistle blows
While the doors close
As I watch her depart

The earth is tremblin'
That train is movin'
My heart braces for another day...away

As she hits the vanishing point
She enters the view of another
Oh, if I could only

Take the train to Odessa
Leave behind all the pain
On a train ride through Odessa
Through the torrential rain
A blissful smile and sudden anger
From such a kind and gentle soul
Will we arrive at our destination?
Will we arrive before we're too old?

Enamored by her stunning beauty
Mystified by her ports of call
If there was just one destination
I'd be where I belong
Try to get to her true nature
Identify with her true soul
We arrive at the next station
For this I had longed

Here we are
all smiles and laughter
what could befall us
at our favorite port of call?
Blissfully, we ignore
The writings on the wall
Another night, another...

We took a train ride to Odessa
Left behind all the pain
Visions of Odessa
I still remember the rain
Her blissful smile, her stunning beauty
Such a kind and gentle soul
We've arrived at our destination
We've arrived and now we're too old
