Lyrics

When I was a child I
Used to wander here
Make believe on the railroad ties
Trains to anywhere

Now a lifetime later I still
Hold this place dear
But no one's heard those whistles blow
In over 20 years

Dry hills in the back drop
The sunset hits the tracks
I'm fading down these rusted lines
There's no turning back

This is the long winding down
Letting go of dreams that
Never came around
The long winding down
And only when you let go
Can you see what you have found
Winding down

Well I was young and wild and somewhat
Broken inside
It didn't matter which train I took
I was runnin' from my life

I left it all behind like there was
Somewhere to be
A picture in my mind now
All the things I'll never see

The long winding down
Letting go of dreams that
Never came around
The long winding down
And only when you let go
Can you see what you have found
Winding down

Dry hills in the back drop
The sunset hits the tracks
I'm fading down these rusted lines
There's no turning back

The long winding down
Letting go of dreams that
Never came around
The long winding down
And only when you let go
Can you see what you have found
Winding down

Like the concept of winding down.

Great song! I like the lyrics and the music pull at my heart strings. The song topic is very refreshing and nice to listen to. This a very marketable song.

Really intriguing song......the images in the lyric match the dark but beautiful melody!! Singer is wonderful, and the arrangement is supportive but not overdone....just what it should be!! Love the chimes? at the beginning...sets the mood. Great job!!
