Old Train

Original and similar lyrics
(Pedersen/Pederden) Old train, I can hear your whistle blow and I want to be jumping on again. Old train, I've been everywhere you go and I know what lies beyond each bend. Old train, each time you pass you're older than the last, and it seems, I'm too old for running. I hear your rusty wheels grate against the rails, they cry with every mile, and I think I'll stay awhile. Old train, I grow weary at the miles and I miss the freedom that was mine. Old train, just to think about those times, I'll smile when you're highballing by. Old train, each time you pass you're older than the last, and it seems, I'm too old for running. I hear your rusty wheels grate against the rails, they cry with every mile, and I think I'll stay awhile.

Older Chests

DAMIEN RICE
Older chests reveal themselves, like a crack in a wall, starting small, and grow in time, we all seem to need the help, of someone else, to mend that shelf, too many books, read me your favourite line, Papa went to other lands and he found someone who understands, the ticking, and the western man's need to cry, he came back the other day ya y'know, some things in life may change, and other things they stay the same, like time, there's always time, on my mind, so pass me by, I'll be fine, just give me time, Older gents sit on the fence with a cap in hand, lookin grand, they watch their city change, children scream or so it seems, louder than before, out a door into stores, with bigger names, mama tried to wash their faces, but these had lost their graces, and daddy lost at the races, too many times, she broke down the other day ya yknow, some things in life may change, and other things they stay the same, like time, there's always time, on my mind, so pass me by, I'll be fine, just give me time

Year Of The Cat

AL STEWART "Year Of The Cat"
On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running Like a watercolour in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat She doesn't give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow 'till your sense of which direction Completely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls There's a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running through The year of the cat Well, she looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to find what's waiting inside The year of the cat Well, morning comes and you're still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometimes you're bound to leave her But for now you're going to stay In the year of the cat

Millie Fell Off The Fire Escape

ATMOSPHERE "Leak At Will"
[Slug] She dropped the gun and started running down the corridor She found the exit to get out that department store She reached full sprint when she hit the parking lot She didn't see police, not even any rent-it-cops She ran across the street and went behind the Applebee's From there she could see those abandoned factories Figured there's a good place for her to hide away Knowing she could climb inside through the fire escape At this point, still felt like a dream In her head she could still hear the little kid's screams Leaning up against the dumpster to find some breath She could hear the sirens, now it's time to step Running through the alleyway now relentless Bobbing in between houses, hopping fences Only two more blocks till the overpass The adrenaline is rendering a panic attack Maybe she should go back and explain it all Maybe the best thing to do now is take that fall Ain't no way that they won't understand Daddy's little girl is never gonna hurt again She can't believe that she's having this dilemma Tryna find a reason that she shouldn't go surrender She's a kid and a first time offender Plus he had it coming, hell it's colder in December Decided she would make it to the vacant warehouse From there she could try to get her head to clear out She needs a minute to sit and think Some time to reflect on these events and let 'em sink There's the building, it's empty she hopes to God The fire escape is on the back near the loading dock The next chapter to the happy ever after Wrapped her little fingers round the cold metal ladder Started climbing, that's when she heard the officer "Millie turn yourself in now girl, come down from there" She tried to look over her shoulder Lost balance, fell four stories, it was over

Folsom Prison Blues

WAYLON JENNINGS "Jewels"
I hear the train a comin' It's rollin' round the bend I ain't seen the sunshine Since I don't know when. Well, I'm stuck in Folsom Prison And time keeps draggin' on But I see a train a movin' On down to San Antone Bet there's rich folks eatin' In some fancy dining car Probably drinkin' coffee And smokin' big cigars. Well, I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free But them people keep on movin' And that's what tortures me. [Instrumental] When I was just a baby My mama told me son Always be a good boy Don't ever play with guns. But I shot a man in Reno Just to watch him die Every time I hear that whistle I hang my head and I cry. If they freed me from this prison If that railroad train was mine Bet I'd move it on a Little bit farther down the line. Far from Folsom Prison That's where I long to stay And I'd let that lonesome whistle Blow my blues away...

The Sun Doesn't Like You

NORAH JONES "Not Too Late"
The sun doesn't like you, you always get burned, Stay in the shade and watch the world turn. Better find a new place to lay on the ground, Can't stay where you are or you're gonna be found. And time won't pass you by, And I won't tell you lies. So tonight ... we can build a fire, In the open field past the razor wire. Sneak by the dogs when they go to sleep, Bring part of yourself that you'll let me keep. 'cause time won't pass us by, And I won't tell you lies, Someday I will ask you why ... but not now. And time won't pass us by, And you won't tell me lies, Someday we all have to die ... but not now.
