Grant Lee Phillips – I Often Dream Of Trains lyrics

I often dream of trains when I'm alone
I ride on them into another zone
I dream of them constantly heading for paradise
Or Basingstoke or Reading

I often dream of trains when I'm awake
They ride along beside a frozen lake
And there in the buffet car, I wait for eternity
Or Basingstoke or Reading

I often dream of trains till it gets light
The summer turns to winter overnight
And the leaves fall so suddenly, the sun sets at four O'clock
Exactly what I'm dreading

I often dream of trains when I'm with you
I wonder if you dream about them too
Maybe, we'll meet one night out in the corridor
I'm waiting for you baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
