Follow That Train

I dreamt you were a train
That I could not catch
I threw up my heels
And ran barefoot down the tracks
I reached for the last car
But you were moving way too fast
I woke from my dream
In a cloud of sweat and steam

And I cried, follow that train
No matter how far
Through the sun, snow and rain
Through the light in the dark
Cause you stole my heart
Follow that train, follow that train

Like the sound of a lonesome whistle
Half a world away
I’m haunted by the night
Ever since that day
You stood there in the kitchen
With the words I couldn’t say
I didn’t know how
But I sure as hell do now

And I should, follow that train
No matter how far
Through the sun, snow and rain
Through the light in the dark
Cause you stole my heart
Follow that train, follow that train

The thing about dreams
They keep coming back
All those might have beens
Are just pennies on the track

So follow that train
No matter how far
Through the sun, snow and rain
Through the light in the dark
Cause you stole my heart

Follow that train no matter how far
Through the sun, snow and rain
Through the light in the dark
Cause you stole my heart

So I follow that train
Follow that train

Yeah I follow that train
