Stop This Train.

Stop This Train

No I’m not color blind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but…
I just can’t sleep on this tonight

Stop this train

I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
But honestly won’t someone stop this train

Don’t know how else to say it,

Don’t want to see my parents go
One generation’s length away
From fighting life out on my own

So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find a

Way to say that life has just begun

Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
Cos, honestly we’ll never stop this train

Once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
And they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing
’til you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.

Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take this speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train
