Sunrise on the tower clock
Back streets still wet with rain
Rowhouses slow then stop
I am arriving on a train

You were always telling me
Not to be so sure
And if I cannot get away
Try to get through

Suddenly now I wake up
Alone on an empty train

I could never get it right
Till I gave up trying
I'm toward the end, settled in
Happy for a while
Now it all seems like a memory at one time

Blue light through cloudy glass
Empty platform like a stage
And I wonder where I'm at
I am arriving on a train

And as I rise from my seat I find
The worried voices fade away
Then at the steps I realize
I am arriving on a train

Arriving On A Train Lyrics

Freedy Johnston – Arriving On A Train Lyrics

Sunrise on the tower clock
Back streets still wet with rain
Rowhouses slow then stop
I am arriving on a train

You were always telling me
Not to be so sure
And if I cannot get away
Try to get through

Suddenly now I wake up
Alone on an empty train

I could never get it right
Till I gave up trying
I'm toward the end, settled in
Happy for a while
Now it all seems like a memory at one time

Blue light through cloudy glass
Empty platform like a stage
And I wonder where I'm at
I am arriving on a train

And as I rise from my seat I find
The worried voices fade away
Then at the steps I realize
I am arriving on a train
