Deacon Blue – This Train Will Take You Anywhere lyrics

Down by the beach road
Crawling through the undergrowth
Stand by the railing
And look along
Put your ear to the ground
Listen for a while
Till all the tracks start
Humming and buzzing
Then the roar comes
And it's louder than the drums
Cause it's tons and tons and tons
Of steel going faster

Now maybe I'm on the bridge
And near the very edge
And I'm waiting for the train
To pass under
It's got fifteen carriages
Each one saying what it is
This is bigger than anything
That'll ever go past you
It drowns out what you say
And it blows the dust away
And it makes it's own way
We can't stop it

This train will take you anywhere
This train will take you anywhere
You want to go

I'm on the border
Berlin to Warsaw
I can't tell the things I saw
You'd see them anyway
It's the same where you go
Hanol to Bangalore
From Belize to Bogato
You can ride on
Get on at the platform
Keep your eyes on the land
And see the colours all change
And the world all open

This train will take you anywhere
And you can see anything
You can sleep or you can imagine
This train will take you anywhere
You want to go
