Lyrics

Thomas: Excuse me, Mr. Crane!
Carter: Uh-huh?
Thomas: You have to load me onto a ship bound for China straight away!
Carter: Oh, do I now?
Thomas: Please! I'm trying to catch up with someone, someone I need to talk to.
Carter: That's some distance to go for a talk. Must be a good friend.
Thomas: Yes, she is.
Thomas: Sometimes you make a friend,
the kind of friend who stays.
Sometimes you make a friend
and you're the one who goes away.
Sometimes you're the one,
who acts a bit unkind.
You didn't think and you did something,
you can't forget and can't rewind.
I'm sorry, so sorry!
And I don't know what to do.
With you so far away.
I'm sorry, so sorry!
And as soon as I see you,
that's exactly what I'm going to say!
I'm sorry, I hope you're still my friend!
I'm sorry, so sorry my friend!
Sometimes you make a friend,
the kind of friend you need.
You try to make them happy,
but... you don't always succeed.
Sometimes you're the one,
who does something that's not okay.
Sometimes you hurt a friend,
and you don't know what to do or say.
I'm sorry, so sorry!
Yong Bao: Hello! Aren't you Thomas from the Island of Sodor? I think I met you at the Great Railway Show.
Thomas: Hello! I remember you, you're Yong Bao!
Yong Bao: That's right, but what are you doing in China, Thomas?
Thomas: Oh, I'm looking for a friend.
Yong Bao: A friend from Sodor?.
Thomas:  No, a friend from Africa.
Chinese Diesel: I met a steam engine from Africa this morning.
Thomas: You did!.
Chinese Diesel: Yes. She was heading for Zhangye Danxia.
Thomas: Zhangye Danxia?
Chinese Diesel: Yes, the Rainbow Mountains.
Thomas: The Rainbow Mountains! Of course! Thanks! Thanks!
Yong Bao: If you're going to the mountains, you'll need a snowplough!
Thomas: So I'll hold onto hope,
I'll hold on tight,
for a chance to make things right.
I'm looking for you,
I'll come through,
if it takes me all my life!
I'm sorry, so sorry!
And I don't know what to do.
With you so far away.
I'm sorry, so sorry!
And as soon as I see you,
that's exactly what I'm going to say!
I'm sorry, I hope you're still my friend!
I'm sorry, so sorry my friend!
