Steel Train – Dakota lyrics

Please remember the nights that we spent
In the city where you lay
We were young and nearly famous
But lighting strikes and building fall
And everything changed
Common dakota tell me you dont wish i was still the same

I know a man dressed as a woman
Heels, curly wig and nails
Fell for a boy who sold him powder and pills
And the younger boy
With the older man
He made it all wrong
And in dakota these awful things burn away with the sun
Yes in dakota this awful things are gone with morning sun

There was a boy who sang his song just different
So they stabbed him in the arms
Blood washed down him like a faucet
He cried for help
And no one came
He died in the rain
And in dakota one day he will wake up unchanged
Yes in dakota one day YOU will wake up unchained

Please remember the nights we spent alone
In the city where you lay
We are young and nearly famous
But thunder cracks and buildings burn
Everything will change
Common dakota i know we can always be the same
And in dakota i know we can always be the same
Yes in dakota its ok to feel a little strange
