I was standing in the station, being pounded by the rain. So I chose the
Last compartment of a stationary train. I felt someone get in behind me,
But I never caught their eye, but I thought I heard I heard a woman's
Voice, whispering goodbye.
So I lay down in the darkness, with the beer and coffee stains and I stared
Out at the thunder. through the broken window panes.
And although the storm was booming, like an engine in the sky. I'm sure I
Heard a woman's voice cry...
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb, it's over and done.I'll never be under
Your thumb forever.
So I rolled myself a cigarette and smoked it on my own. But it didn't stop
The whispers or the smell of her cologne. Then she rose up out of nowhere
And her hair was full of steam and she stuck her head out the window and
Screamed and screamed, she screamed!
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb, it's over and done. I'll never be under
Your thumb forever.
So I picked up an old newspaper to read and I noticed something very
Strange indeed. So I looked a little closer and it chilled me to the bone.
"Woman throws herself from speeding train, identity unknown" But I
Recognized the picture of the woman who was dead and underneath the picture
It said...
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb, it's over and done. I'll never be under
Your thumb forever.

Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb, it's over and done. I'll never be under
Your thumb forever.
