Steel Train – Alone On The Sea lyrics

Coming home from a month away
To empty cabinets and bed
Well if there's love in this house again
Then let the lights shine through the windows and onto my head

Now I stay in the city
Walk the streets, search for something
Something calls and its leaving
I am dreaming of a girl, she is not really there

All I did see, is the buildings they burn so bright

I feel sorry for everything
Ill watch the homeless woman sleep
Just like the dimes that I gave her
I am scattered and I will roll away

I dream of the other side
Coming home to see your mothers
Best friends who mean all the world
But can't understand the ground that I walk on

All I did see, is the buildings they burn so bright

Some cry for the towers
Ill cry for the others
Who wait here in a jail cell
Lonely like a sailor, on the sea
Alone on the sea
I am lonely like a sailor, alone on the sea

All I did see, is the buildings they burn so brig
