I never saw you as the popular type
And I never saw you with anyone
When I got the word that you so suddenly died
I cried ‘cause I thought you never really lived

When the last train comes around the bend
I’ll wait for you my friend on the last train
When I see you again,
     we’ll laugh about the way it had to end

 

Do you know you were a hero to me?

Cause you never ever let no one tell you how to be
That’s what we all should be, my friend

 

When I went to see you in my black suit and tie
I thought I was in somebody else’s room

‘Cause there were broken hearted women and

     grown men in tears from wall to wall

Man that said it all

 

When the last train comes around the bend
Will you be standin’ there my friend
On the last train, when I see you again, 
we’ll laugh about summer days and stupid friends

 

Do you know you were a hero ____
     ‘cause you never put yourself above anyone
That’s what I wish I could be, my friend
My friend

 

When the last train comes around the bend
You were the best kind of friend
On the last train, when I see you again
We’ll laugh about the way it had to end

 

Do you know you were a hero to me?
Cause you never ever let no one tell you

   how to be my friend

 

On the last train, On the last train
On the last train, On the last train
On the last train
When I see you again, On the last train
