The Railway.

 

               The Railway.

Been down by the railway waited all day long

Waited for my overdue train that I knew had gone

And so I waited for another-another train to be

Yes I have been down by the railway to see those trains that I now see.

Well the cold of night finally came around while I now sat there all alone

And although I waited through that night those trains had come and gone

And while time alone it lingered on all my thoughts became far and few

And with just my suitcase at my side I just thought what shall I do

For all those days and nights were fading and from my youth I had grown old

And now for every second that I now lived on I just shivered with all that cold

But still both of my eyes they were open to watch those trains still passing by

For it was really my wish to be here when the time it came to die.

Well I knew that my death it was now closing in

While I just sat there through the coldness of that night

And with that strong wind now blowing for all my breath I had to fight

And yet while my eyes they were still open I watched those trains still passing by

For it was really my wish to be here when the time it came to die.

With the whole of my body now upon that seat my eyes they were closed for sure

And although all those trains still passed me by I just couldn't see them anymore

And yet before I died it become my wish to watch all those trains just pass me by

For it was right here by the railway that I now once chose to die.
