Train Song

Erin Jordan


Mystery unfurls, as another night swirls to an end - on a 3AM train The second hand leaves the night and approaches the daylight Panhandling for time or an ear to listen - but some change wouldn't hurt He asks for a smoke and thinks it's a lie when he hears I'm down to my last.... And he feels obliged to tell us what the good book says Hallelujah, hosanna on high He says I don't know about you, my friends, But I know where I'm going when I die Where I'm going....... Beauty is eternal but pretty is sure fleeting And history is repeating again and again and again and again and again...... He said If Jesus Christ came back down to the earth today I know just what he would do and what he'd say Hallelujah, hosanna on high He said I know where I'm going when I die...... There is no other side to this track - it runs right through Every part of town and every part of you And you can say - Hey, just another harmless drunk Hallelujah, hosanna on high And you can say that people don't have souls - they're just experiences You can try and try and try.....
