Jack & Sophie (Separate Lives)

When Jack put on his jacket
Sophie was on the train
Watching how the rain
Was beating on the nearest window
On and on again

The train approached the city
When Jack was leaving home
He crossed a busy road
Next to the railway station
Where Sophie’s train never stopped

People living separate lives
(Do you ever wonder why?)
Two hearts under the same sky

(Do you ever wonder why?)
The same future in their eyes
The same will to change their lives

Jack didn’t see the car that
Had jumped a red light
The car swerved to the right
And crashed into a power pole
Which fell and cut the light

Sophie saw in the distance
A pole fall to the ground
The train suddenly slowed down
And with no power to go on
Sophie had to get down

People living separate lives
(Do you ever wonder why?)
Two hearts under the same sky

(Do you ever wonder why?)
The same future in their eyes
The same will to change their lives

When Jack was feeling better
He got up suddenly
And Sophie bumped into him
