lyrics

you better hold tight
for the winds of change will call
and the gale that howls in the night
will spare no one at all

so I left the comfort of your arms
to go riding on this train
rumbling past the weathered shacks
along America’s veins

as your call for forgiveness
hung unanswered in the dawn
darlin’ you know I’m not that strong

the casket and the mints
the sky was swollen and bruised
I tucked myself into a corner
with the lonely and accused

where I’m forced to remember
every night on Lafayette
the violence of his words
the air was stale with his sweat

and the sting of a confession
and the discharge of one round
I hope you're somewhere sleeping safe and sound

trains don’t get lost rolling down the track
but you disappeared whenever I looked back
now I’m left trying to slow dance with your memory

I watched her fingers as they ran
along the ice that had formed
on that rusted iron railing
behind the funeral home
and things never were the same
on our twisted carousel
It was never really us vs them
only you against yourself

And I’m guilty of enjoying
the taste of licking my own wounds
I hope we get to New Orleans soon

trains don’t get lost rolling down the track
but you disappeared whenever I looked back
now I’m left to slow dance with your memory

so you better hold tight
for the winds of change will call
and the gale that howls in the night
will spare no one at all
