Track Name: Ain't No Train
People at the station / Checkin’ the time / Been waitin’ so long
To hear that whistle whine / There’s a shine on the rails
And a clickety-clack / But there ain’t no train / Comin’ down the track

Ain’t no train (ain’t no train)
Ain’t no train (ain’t no train)
Ain’t no train (ain’t no train)
To carry me home

It reeks of darkness / And smoke in the air / Nobody here’s
Goin’ anywhere / I’d give anything / To get it all back
But there ain’t no train / Comin’ down the track

Chorus

Back in the day / When the sun would shine / I used to have a lover
At the end of the line / But the weather changed
And I turned my back / Now there ain’t no train
Comin’ down the track

You can sail a sailboat / You can drive a motorcycle
Rent a car catch a star / Ride a bullet from a rifle
Peddie cab, bus ride, helicopter, Circle Line
But you can’t escape the pain / If you haven’t got a train

Chorus 2x
