How sweet would be the sounds
Oh, the choo-choo train coming into town
Inspiring hopes, lifting our dreams
Believing again, in the invisible train.
For where has my youth gone ?
Days of images and color streams
Where did it all go ? This new change in season
My heart has ached and ached
Seeing all that was familiar
Vanish between the dream and all that is beneath her
I'm sorry I wasn't strong enough
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
May my tears carry you the rest of the journey
How cold and lonely I've been traveling
Perhaps dreaming of a place so heartwarming
Where will I rest my brittle bones, for no one
Not a living soul, would lend me a sword
Slaying the beast of kingdoms past, I ask
To forgive me at last, rest my love, rest
Once and for all, someone will hold the doors
Of misery open, to take away my silly fears.
