Oh Genevieve, what have I done?
On seventh thought you were the one
But I was too blind, too blind to see it

Minutes to hours, days into years
Too late for flowers, but not for tears
What would you say, girl if I begged you?

I found that piece of amber we discovered on the beach
A butterfly suspended inside, gorgeous, out of reach
Tell me, do you ever think of me?

Chorus I
Has that train left the station
For another destination
Or are you maybe still going my way?
We were young and I was foolish
Debonair, but clearly clueless
And I am only half those things these days

Ma belle cheri, I fear I erred
Life was sublime when we were a pair
What can I say? Trés desolé?

Oh Ginny dear, would you respond
If I suggest that we abscond,
Run to a place where no one can find us?

I’ll buy us a Greek island, I hear they’re going cheap
I’ll peel all your oranges, I’ll even make your tea
I will give you everything you need

Chorus I

When you say
That water’s under the bridge
Down the river and out to sea

Up into a cloud
And it’s rained down on you and me
I guess you mean

Chorus II
That that train has left the station
For another destination
All that’s left is to wave my goodbyes
I could run but if I caught it,
what would that accomplish?
And anyway a man has got his pride
Oh Genevieve, what have I done?
