Lyrics

Run Away Train © By Andrew Neil Maternick August 2010

Via con dios my sisters my bros
Via con dios
Via con dios my sisters my bros
Via con dios

Somebody once said time is on your side
That somebody is probably dead, oh have they lied?
Somebody once said time is on your side
Well in my big ole head, it's something you ride

Time is run away train
Its cargo is joy and pain
Time is a run away train
It lets one know it does explain

Explain it does
Why it was what it was
Why things are and what will be
Is the journey far to station Free?

The whistle rings lows and highs
The train has wings oh it surely flies
It drums and sings a song that's truly wise
And it brings hellos and goodbyes

Times a run away train it only stops twice
I'd be insane not to roll the dice
Can not be another grain of rice
In a bowl of vain advice
So

I'll stop when I drop then go where I go
To the bottom to the top, hope I earn a Bravo
From the One who put the train on the tracks
And the Sun on our backs

Time is run away train
Its cargo is joy and pain
Time is a run away train
It lets one know it does explain

On the train I've come to learn before becomes after
And heavy tears can really turn into laughter
Blink after blink time disappears faster and faster
And all the ink of many years writes one chapter
