LYRICS

Ride That Train

I still dream
But I can’t sleep without
I still roam
But I’m not free
I still rise
Even when I’m falling
Don’t you wait
Don’t wait for me

Ride that train
Light that flame
without me
Ride that train
Break that chain to me

I still love
Yes, I still love you
I still ache
But I don’t seem to care

You were all
All I ever wanted
Don’t look back;
You ain’t headed there

Ride that train
Light that flame
without me
Ride that train
Break that chain to me

There’s no sky
No clouds above me
No fear
Or chores to do
And no wings for me to fly on
Fly on high
Back to you

Ride that train
Light that flame
without me
Ride that train
Break that chain to me
