Amanda Shires – When You Need A Train It Never Comes lyrics
I was dreaming I was tied to a train track twisting in the sun
Burning up hoping the trains hadn't quit rolling
I was ready for it to be done
But when you need a train it never comes

I woke up to you wearing your winter coat
You're leaving everything here but your phone
And I leaned out the window but the tracks below
Were quiet, calm, and cold
When you need a train it never comes
When you need a train it never comes

The union pacific is due for a visit
And believe me I got a plan
But the plan's no good without the train
And when you need a train it never comes
When you need a train it never comes

Standing in the kitchen with all the dirty dishes
You left a lot of things here undone
The washer's leaking and the porch light's broken
Things you said you'd get around to

I could use a distraction and the noise of the engine
It's rumblin' would at least be a break
From these thoughts screaming and your voice haunting
The only thing louder is trains
The only thing louder is trains

The union pacific is due for a visit
And believe me I got a plan
But the plan's no good without the train
And when you need a train it never comes
When you need a train it never comes

Crying in the sweater you gave me in this weather-
What am I supposed to do?
You can't leave me with your things as some sort of trade
Cuz you're wanting something new
It's mean and it's cruel.

The union pacific is due for a visit
And believe me I got a plan
But the plan's no good without the train
And when you need a train it never comes
When you need a train it never comes
