Just a basement gal
Heading home from Southern Cal.
She takes the midnight train going north northwest. 

An accounting boy
Working in the same employ.
He takes the midnight train going south southeast. 

The basement near the boiler room. 
An office with a lofty view. 
Not much chance they would share the night,
Let alone a point in space and time.

Chorus: Train tracks merging 
Up and down the right of way, their
Headlights dueling in the night.
Engines. People. 
ABC’s of locomotion.
Meeting somewhere in the night.

Too much math, computing odds? 
Blame it on capricious gods 
Trying everything or rolling dice 
In one time line. 

Some will win and some will lose. 
Careful of the wish you choose. 
Well the movie has an end
At a single point in space and time. 

Chorus: Train tracks merging 
Up and down the right of way, their
Headlights dueling in the night.
Engines. People. 
ABC’s of locomotion.
Meeting somewhere in the night.

Don’t knock mathematics,
Classical mechanics.
Headlights.  People. 
Oh-oh-nooooooo!
