lyrics

All the places we've been together
The time we spent at each others side
You told me of a train that takes you away
Tried to warn me about a bumpy ride

I never wanted to listen, never wanted to know
I thought we were different, thought we could come back
But before I knew it, we had left the station
By the age-old train on the rusty old track

They said the doors are closing to the street
You'd best stand clear and take a seat
Hold on tight to the handle now
In case you're swept right off your feet

And we'll do the Blue Line shuffle
Come on dance until your feet fall off
It's the Blue Line shuffle
Once you start there ain't no way to stop

Life goes by, just blurred scenery
I can no longer tell your life from mine
Please won't you tell me where we're getting off?
Cause I don't wanna end up at the end of the line

You said the doors are closing to the street
You'd best stand clear and take a seat
Hold on tight to the handle now
In case you're swept right off your feet

And we'll do the Blue Line shuffle
Come on dance until your feet fall off
It's the Blue Line shuffle
Once you start there ain't no way to stop

But if I pull that handle and the wheels squeal
I beg, I cry to your ideal
This time it's you who broke the deal
I'm on the platform in the falling rain
You stop, you turn, but you remain
Your words call out from on the train

I said the doors are closing to the street
You'd best stand clear and take a seat
Hold on tight to the handle now
In case you're knocked right off your feet

And you'll do the Blue Line shuffle
You'll be dancin' 'til your feet fall off
It's the Blue Line shuffle
Once you start, there ain't no way to stop
Once you start, there ain't no way to stop
Once you start, there ain't no way to stop
