Lyin' awake at night
Thinkin' about my life
Train rumblin' thru our town
Walls shake like they're coming down

You sleep like nothings wrong
You don't know tomorrow I'm gone
You don't hear the whistle's sad cry
You don't see the tears in my eyes

Chorus:
I wish I were a train rolling on a track
With three choices
Stop on a dime move ahead or go back
But I can't go back and face the pain
So I lie here and wish I were a train

Baby once we had it all
This ain't nobody's fault
Seems like everything changed
Love just up and moved away

Chorus:
On a train rolling on a track
With three choices
Stop on a dime move ahead or go back
But I can't go back and face the pain
So I lie here and wish I were a train

Repeat chorus:
