It's late and I can't sleep
I've made promises that I can't keep
Cobblestones and broken bones, has a kingdom but he's got no home
Last night is still ringing in my head like that lonesome whistle in the rain

I'm a fool for a lonesome train
I'm a fool for a lonesome train

The lifetime we've left behind with strangers
Promises and lies both have their dangers
I just can't be wrong enough and I can't hide for long enough
So far away, but I still feel your pain

I'm a fool for a lonesome train
I'm a fool for a lonesome train
I'd try to say goodbye but I never got your name
I'm a fool for a lonesome train

I'm a fool for a lonesome train
I'm your fool for a lonesome train
I know it sounds crazy but I'm painfully sane
I'm your fool for a lonesome, lonesome, lonesome train
