Truth About Trains

When you were workin’ the rails for Northfolk Southern
I’d hear that whistle and I’d go running
Our love was just like an engine hummin’
Sparks, steam and fire
Yeah we ran on that awhile

But the truth about trains
Is they come and go
They get what they need
Then they leave
Disappear into a cloud of smoke
The truth about trains
They can make you blue
They can’t feel
They’re cold hard steel
That’s the truth about trains and you

Our love was wild like a West Virginia river
Promises you made sure painted pretty pictures
When you said those things was your heart still with her
Thinking that you’d always go back
Like a diesel starring down the track

Yeah the truth about trains
Is they come and go
They get what they need
Then they leave
Disappear into a cloud of smoke
The truth about trains
They can make you blue
They can’t feel
They’re cold hard steel
That’s the truth about trains and you

This might sound crazy but sometimes lately
I sit at the station, just waiting…. for you

But the truth about trains
Is they come and go
They get what they need
Then they leave
Disappear into a cloud of smoke
The truth about trains
They can make you blue
They can’t feel
They’re cold hard steel
That’s the truth about trains and you

That's the truth about trains, and the truth about you
