Janis Ian - This Train Still Runs Lyrics



I felt a rumble in my heart, over the mountains
As the engine ate the spark, spitting out the miles
Times when I tried to jump the track
Weight of the world upon my back
Still after all is said and done

This train still runs
It doesn't matter where it's gone
This train still runs
And though the baggage weighs a ton
We carry on
Nothing is forever young
I'm not done - his train still runs

I had a friend I left behind, back at the station
We used to burn the power lines, racing with the wind
But time has the manners of a thief
Young love turns bittersweet
Still we keep that lantern hung - this train still runs

This train still runs
It doesn't matter where it's gone
This train still runs
And though the baggage weighs a ton
We carry on
No one is forever young
I'm not done this train still runs

Got a ticket in my pocket and I'm ready to ride
Got a motor rolling over to an easy glide
I'm gonna travel on the gravel to the other side
Sure as a baby loves the teat
Sure as a high heel on concrete
Sure as the songs I've left unsung
This train still runs

This train still runs
It doesn't matter where it's gone
This train still runs
And though the baggage weighs a ton
We carry on
Nothing is forever young
I'm not done - this train still runs
This train still runs
This train still runs
