RAIL

 

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

 

Sleepwalking these rails,
I let the grass grow long.
Oh my memory fails,

and I forgot my song.
Blackberries grow wild,
smell of pitch in the sun.
Weeds roll over my mind,
and they almost won.

 

But I said no more...

 

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

 

Tearing up these weeds,
blow the smoke in my stack.
The sound of steel on steel,
and there’s no going back.
I got a head full of coal,

hear the lightning crack.
Light a fire in my soul,

and get me back on track.

 

Put your ear to the rail,
you can hear my love come down
Where hearts and heroes fail,
I won’t be turned around

 

No more driving this blind,
time to throw that switch.
Drives a spike in my mind,
and makes my fingers itch.
You better get on board,
or get out of my way.
Hauling heavy and slow,

but I’m leaving today.

 

And I said no more...

 

And I know that I’ve been here before,
And it’s taken its toll on me.
But I’m not giving up anymore,
No I’m not giving up on me…
