about

I always pictured this scene at the Depot in Livingston, Montana. The scene of two people who deeply love each other having to say goodbye as one goes off to work on a train. It's hard to live apart and stay together, there is no doubt about that. Maybe millions of goodbyes were said at the Depot.

lyrics

NO KIND OF ANGEL
by Britt K. Arnesen

At the Depot, Lil and her darling another train in the night
Joining fellow wives and families kissing loved ones goodbye
She's embraced him at the station some five hundred times
And it's never gotten easier saying goodbye
Hardest part of loving him is letting him fly
-------
She's been waltzing in the garden neath the green northern lights
Trading Fridays with the neighbors, sharing birthdays and pies
She wonders if he's faithful; she's no kind of angel
It's a risk they've been taking making love between trains
He says the hardest part of leaving is the missing each day
She says the hardest part of loving you is feeling this way
The hardest part of loving is the living each day
------
Queue up a waltz for Lil and her darling at the depot this night
Twirl all around the floor before they’re boarding the line
She's embraced him at this station some five hundred times
And it's never gotten easier saying goodbye
He says the hardest part of leaving is the look in your eyes
She says the hardest part of loving him is letting him fly
Hardest part of loving him is letting him fly
Hardest part of loving is the saying goodbye
