Story Behind the Song

The song was inspired by the girlfriend of a former apartment manager of mine. She obviously loved him and he obviously abused her. When I met her she could barely talk because he had recently choked her. The characters were also developed further after s

Lyrics

MIDNIGHT TRAIN
In the night, while he is sleeping
She looks out, on the train as its leaving
Now he doesn?t know what's in her soul
And he doesn?t care, just as long as she is there

At first he really loved her, but that soon changed
Cause the deeper that he felt her, the more frightened he became
Now his love is rage, and she's the one to bleed

So she dreams of that Midnight Train
She dreams of a midnight getaway
On the Midnight Train

The first time that he touched her was the first time she came alive
But now his touch is like a razor and his lips are like ice
But the thing she can?t figure is why she still loves him
What scar is there within her that keeps her bound to the man
She just can?t seem to cut him from her soul

So she dreams of that Midnight Train
She dreams of a midnight getaway
On the Midnight Train

And when that train leaves tonight
Maybe she can take flight
But she pauses at the door, like so many times before
Cause she still believes that he might change

But one night, the time will come
When crying ain't enough to get her through
She can't stand this feeling no more

And in the morning light, he'll be staring down those tracks
Wishing that she still loved him, wishing to have her back
Wishing for another chance

But she left on that Midnight Train
She took the midnight getaway
On that Midnight Train
