Cinderella – Heartbreak Station

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams blog. This weeks theme…Trains.
The title song from their 1990 album. The song reached # 20 on Billboards Hot 100 chart on April 27, 1991.
From songfacts.

This song is one of the few Cinderella songs where lead singer Tom Keifer does not sing in his famous rough voice. His trademark voice makes an appearance for only a few lines.

Heartache can be found throughout the Cinderella catalog. On this song, Tom Keifer evokes the train as both the memory of his lost love and his means for escape. He tells us that his heart has been shattered several times, and it’s the sum of these experiences that work their way into these songs. “For me, the emotions are more cumulative or an average of a lifetime,” he said.

Heartbreak Station

Waiting at the station
Tears filling up my eyes
Sometimes the pain you hide
Burns like a fire inside
Look out my window
Sometimes it’s hard to see
The things you want in life
Come and go so easily
She took the last train out of my heart oh, oh
She took the last train
And now I think I’ll make a brand new start
She took the last train out of my heart
Watching the days go by
Thinking ’bout the plans we made
The days turn into years
Funny how they fade away
Sometimes I think of those days
Sometimes I just hide away
Waiting on that 9:20 train
Waiting on a memory
She took the last train out of my heart oh, oh
She took the last train
And now I think I’ll make a brand new start
She took the last train out of my heart
My lady’s on the fly and she’s never coming back
My love is like a steam train rolling down the tracks yea, yea
She took the last train out of my heart oh oh
She took the last train
And now I think I’ll make a brand new start
She took the last train out of my heart
She took the last train oh, out of my heart
She took the last train
And now I think I’ll make a new start
Last train out of my heart

  1. Love this song. We did this when we played at Ronnie’s Bar in Joelton.
    If he would have sounded like this more I would have liked their earlier music.
    He has a great voice but he can sound like Edith Bunker when he hits his rough squeaky voice.
