when i hear her name lyrics – hot water music

the trains depart upon the hour all the time.
it gets me thinking, maybe this one’s mine.
so hard to break away, but that’s the way i feel.
to try to get to something that’s more real.

[chorus]
the time came when i saw
that there was more than this
the memories, it seems i’ll miss.
those empty dreams, those broken seams,
it’s all the same.
it still hurts when i hear her name.

i tried to walk away, but to no avail.
a vain attempt maybe, but i didn’t fail.
the people, the parties, oh how i couldn’t take.
i played those silly games, all for her own sake.

[repeat chorus]
