every morning y'know I catch the train
down on the corner to go to work again
leave my dreams in the light of day
inside a room that's cold and grey
to face a world that I can't explain
I'm just a man riding a train

track one
wish that I could hold it down
track two
put my feet back on the ground
track three
find a way to turn this ride around

hey lover, I know you're not to blame
did you find an answer or was it all in vain
thought I'd get it right someday
when we were close I was far away
living life in a hurricane
just a man riding a train

repeat chorus

after all the time I've spent just wasting time
looking for an answer on the D line

it says, one way on a neon sign
one way that's so hard to find
all the people that I used to know
drift around in the afterglow
the brakeman sings a sad refrain
I'm just a man riding a train

repeat chorus
