Travis – Ancient Train lyrics

Written by Andy Dunlop

I'm a little boy
In the world today
Trying to live his life
In a grown up way
Sometimes I get so scared
That I can hardly move
But I'm a little boy
With a lot to prove
Somedays go by so fast
Sometimes I wonder
How long will this young boy last?
Now I'm an ancient train
Going down the track
I always make my way
Never turning back
Because my wheels are old
Sometimes I ride real slow
But I'm an ancient train
With a place to go
I used to ride so fast
Sometimes I wonder
How long will this old train last?
Sometimes the song goes fast
Sometimes I wonder
How long will this old song last?
