context

This song is a duet from our song cycle, Belongings, between two characters called Alison and Neil. This song is sung while they both travel by train from opposite ends of the country to meet in the middle for a weekend away. They talk about the nerves they feel as the number of stops decrease throughout the song, but it transpires that when it comes to the future of the relationship, they have different things in mind.
