Once I had a train
Drove the southern skys
It dove into the rain
Washed till it dried
And my favorite part of livin then was feelin set free
Like I knew what that was
But time its seemed to pass
My ways didn’t last
Long forgotten now
I speak to them like old friends
We sit around the table, ive seen a lot of things
Its surreal as a light show but I sit there till the end

Oh I want to go back to sleeping in the hollows, theres a long string of things I should’ve
Shadows down, matters all around, left up from the old rounds its all in the things ive seen

So I come home from a late night
To a campfire in the starlight
This home is not a home but its alright
Feels more natural than most nights
And the road goes on forever
I feel it now it holds me more than ever

Its been a long way on short track, feel all the small cracks, wait until tomorrow learn the day will come
I feel left in some old way, find myself day to day, thinking about things that could have been

Once I had a train
Drove the southern skies
It dove into the rain
Washed till it dried
Continued on around twisting through the same marked door
Found itself a home but without love there is no more
What’s real is what he wants it to be
Realized that but found the same old me
