Train In The Night

Train in the middle of the night,
tranquilize me, soothe me, relaxing my nerves
A million voices of a million thoughts that seemingly go unheard
those whispers that won't keep quiet
When I keep hushing them away
The rowdy sounds keep getting louder
as they are begging me to stay
I keep tossing and turning
lying there awake
The street lights shine their light on my mind
dissolving the sleeping pills that I take
Eyes wide open, every thought louder than the next
Until I hear that old familiar sound
that leaves me reverently perplexed
It's the sound of the train in the middle of the night
A simplicity that I beg
it's casual but not too close, in the distance but not unheard of
Carrying the freight
taking the weight off my shoulders
It's funny how a lasting smell, a lasting sound
can make a moment stand on its own
The informal introduction of the night train
reminds me I'm not alone
It's uninterested in what I have to say
yet soothingly drowns out all that is screaming in my head
Reminiscent of  that old Cash song
When the train is coming around the bend
It's as if a lullaby was rocking me
My eyes drift off the sleep
Until once again, my apprehensions keep me awake
I bid thee farewell,
dear train
dear train
