lyrics

My momma said right before I left town again, "baby don't go down south, how long are you gonna run away from yourself?
I figured it out about that time, I'm not sure which time, it was all the advice that I needed it just didn't make sense 'till now

I am so far from what I know and I've been riding that train wherever it goes, sometimes I think that I live for it, that loss of control
I know momma said that there was nowhere to go, but when I look at the land and I watch it all roll, I forget what she told me and I don't care where I'm going

And I watch the world as it passes by me
Everything keeps moving, moving too fast to see
You can't stop a train once it reaches this speed
But its alright momma, I've got a window seat

Was it something she said or it might have been a note left on the table, she's been gone for a week I just didn't want to be the one to call first
And I figured it out right about that time, I'm never sure which time, I got down on my knees and I said please don't ever give up on us

Now I am so far from what I know, I've been riding that train wherever it goes, sometimes I think that I live for it, that loss of control
I know momma said that there was nowhere to go, but when I look at the land and I watch it all roll, I forget what she told me and I don't care where I'm going

One more time for the people that can't be reached
One more time for the people, the people in need
One more time can someone please tell me, why this train keeps moving, and I keep losing speed
