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…
Can’t be reused
I try to rewind
But the imagery won’t move
Why don’t you just, leave me behind?
But the moment’s so, so hard to find.
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?
