Train

fra ep-en Dry Wood (2011) 

Hey you with that big fat smile
Do you still remember
When we crossed that extra mile
To catch a train to Arizona

I recall you sleeping in a first class Amtrak train
Made of sixtie´s noisy steel
While the driver blew in his horn all night again
In every crossing we could feel

But this old train
Will do me some good
This old train will do me some good

You told me stories you thought I would hear
You with your free tickets to anywhere
I sensed a dark woman creeping near
When you said you didnt care

We took it all for granted
And now were stranded
This old train will do us some good
We took it all for granted
And now were stranded
This old train will do us some good

A smile some dust and a memory of you
A smile some dust and a memory of you

A train can stop a man resets
His journey´s path to go back to his past
Leaving steam but hell never forget
What once was running thru his veins so fast

How I loved your smile
Loved your character
Loved every darkest night
This short time

Once I recall our summertime
now im piled up in your past behind
Steel and coins will last a long long time
And love tastes better than the finest wine

This old train will do me some good
This old train will do me some good
A smile some dust and a memory of you
A smile some dust and a memory of you
A smile som dust and a memory of you
