Locomotive - Shiloh Kauk

Verse 1

Locomotive, in the distance

When did you begin?

Never knowing when you passed me by…

Looking after, your commotion

Out of butterfly eyes

Dragging with you, all the moments I try to find…

Pre Chorus

Disposable time,

Can’t be reused

I try to rewind

But the imagery won’t move


Slip by

Why don’t you just, leave me behind?

I try…

But the moment’s so, so hard to find.

Verse 2

Eager faces, in the windows,

Adjust the horizon line

Carried onward by the current of time…

Start to wonder what my fate is

Can I make it this time?

Can I take this ordinary life, to somewhere divine?


I let another train arrive and leave

My forgetfulness will never ease

Why can’t oblivion surrender me

And let the locomotive sweep me off my feet?
