"Handsome is that Handsome Dose" - Traditional Chinese Fortune Cookie Proverb

Dining Car


I took the train to Dover -

an Amtrak dining car I had all to myself. 

Because I knew it wasn't over:

Our romance novel not quite ready for the shelf.


But Delaware is such a lonely place in Wintertime, 

And I will share my only grace at your end of the line, 

When I see you.  Ooh, when I see you.


I'm on the train to Dover -

A second cup of coffee in this dining car. 

And when this trip is over, 

I hope you'll make a wish upon our shining star.


But Delaware is such a lonely place in winter rain.

And I don't care if only we erase the bitter pain,

When I see you.  Ooh, when I see you.


Spending my days in the dining car, 
Dreaming of ways to be with you, my shining star.  
Iā€™m losing my mind in this dining car,
Trying to find the way back to my shining star.
