Southbound Train

I’ve modified the lyrics to this…but this about sums up how I’m feeling right now:

I’m sitting on a southbound train, staring at the sky
I’m thinking of my childhood and I’m trying not to cry
While a stranger sleeps against me and it feels like she’s my wife
The towns and cities flutter past like the pages of my life

My heart is on the baggage rack, it’s heavy as can be
I wish that I could find someone who would carry it for me
Just to pay it some attention and to handle it with care
Because it has been dropped and is in need of some repair

Some things I know, some things I guess
Some things I wish that I could learn to express
Like the way that I feel as I stare at the sky
And I remember your voice and the sound of goodbye

Maybe it’s the autumn chill, maybe it’s the rain
Maybe I should wake the stranger and ask her her name
But my eyes they would betray me, and my words could not defend
No, I must learn to wait my turn before I love again

Some things I know, some things I guess
Some things I wish that I could learn to express
Like the way that I feel as I stare at the sky
And I remember your voice and the sound of goodbye
