Song of despair after losing a loved one.
Train to Nowhere
by
E C Wesch

(chorus)
As I gaze through the window,
watch the world speed by.
On a train bound to nowhere,
'neath the big blue sky.
Like a dream, life is passing,
in the blink of an eye.
So I sit by this window,
and wave good-by

My heart's split in pieces,
and the tears roll down,
on a face that is painted,
like Emmett-the-Clown.
As my tears pool beside me,
and litter the ground,
I see my reflection,
and sad ly frown.

The evening skies,
in a nightmare race.
O'er the grassy plains,
In a frantic pace.
Though my heart keeps beating
mindful of its place.
I sorely miss,
your handsome face.

As the lightning flashes
in a blinding glare,
and the willows sway
in the cool night air.
A cold seeps inside me
without room to spare.
and it chills my heart
without a care.

I long for the warmth
of your embrace.
Imagining your kisses
upon my face.
My heart beats in rhythm
to the clacking wheels.
I know now how
a lost love feels.

Now I gaze through this window,
watch the world speed by.
On a train bound to nowhere,
'neath the big blue sky.
Like a dream life is passing,
in the blink of an eye
So I sit by this window,
and wave good-by.
