Sonya Kitchell – Train lyrics


I've just taken a seat on the train
I walked through busy streets down a shadowy lane
I just bought my ticket for the ride
There's no turning back now, no matter what I decide

Steel body moves fast, hinges pounding against the ground
I sink into my seat and I pray for it to speed up
While I wish it would slow down

My body quivers with anticipation for what lies ahead
Wood is thrown onto the fire that cries out to be fed
Mist shrouds the dawn, so ahead I cannot see
The train it moves ever forward into the misty sea

There's so many faces
But most of the time I feel so alone
There's so many places
Will I ever stop and know my own home

I know I'm gonna get there
But I'm not sure when
Nor do I know where I'm going
So I won't pretend

I cannot see beyond the horizon
Nor around the bend
The train it moves ever forward
Without a seeming end

Out of one window, I saw rain
I looked through the other, and I felt the warm suns rays
The wind, it gently blew across my weary shoulder
And time whispered in my ear
"Child, you're just gonna keep getting older"

But I've done nothing more
Than take a seat on this here, train
Yet my life turned upside down and only
Only the little things remain
