The Passenger

The Passenger

Stars

Seven forty nine
Night train right on time
Climb the steel stairs
Absinthe brandy wine
Spirits moving in the steam
Compartment forest green
The rattle of the rails
You fall into a dream

High clouds in the sky
Moon goes racing by
Another sleepless night
So you speed into daylight

Here comes another strange town
Here comes another breakdown

And you can run forever
They'll catch you now or never

In the dinner car
And then later in the bar
You see yourself reflected
I wonder who you are

The passengers asleep
Dream of secrets that they keep
In the cabin next to you
A women starts to weep

And then every day
Things you knew all fall away
Things you have all dissappear
As if you were never here

Here comes another strange town
Here comes another breakdown

And you can run forever
They'll catch you now or never

And when you arrive
You're not sure if you're alive
All the passengers are gone
Everybody except one
Station quiet station still
Nothing moves and nothing will
Put your hand up to your face
There are things you can't replace

Here comes another strange town
Here comes another breakdown

And you can run forever
They'll catch you now or never

Here comes another strange town
Here comes another breakdown
And you can run forever
They'll catch you now or never
