lifeblood: songs: lyrics: 6:15 diesel


cold february sun
eases my eyes open
i watch the 6:15
diesel pass

open my breakfast soon
drink through the afternoon
meet my friend
at the overpass

i've got a long way to go
yeah to find my way
down the tracks
that i've layed in my mind
to get out of the rain and
the cold

i've got a lot to tell
i'll show you how to smell
the scent of
the soft carolina rain

blossoms like butterflies
filling our winter skies
flew up from georgia
above the train

but i've got a long way to go
yeah to find my way
down the tracks
that i've layed in my mind
to get out of the rain and
the cold

have i told you
you don't have to cry
i can tell time from the sky
and i'll show you why
each of us must die
each of us must die

well i think the train today
might take my soul away
oh will you be
by my side

or when the train is gone
will you be left alone
will you be with me
on the ride

its taken me all of this
lifetime to find my way
down the tracks
that i've layed in my mind
to get out of the rain and
the cold

hey hey

cold february night
freight trains oncoming light
down by the tracks
at the overpass

there by the fences edge
next to the concrete ledge
two empty bottles
lay in the grass
