lyrics

Trains pass along their journey to I don't know where
It's dark outside your window but I know they're there
Old scars run through the city crosstie stitches roar
And while you were asleep came knocking at your door

We left our jars of water sitting on the sill
They rattle through the night just as the railroad will
I feel it through the mattress pulling at my bones
Springs bend but dead wood doesn't and I've wondered

When this house comes down are we still in it
With the notes that you'd tacked on the walls
And when my courage fails would you forgive it
And lend me the pieces that you had collected for yours

The colours of your scenery light then burn then fade
But lined around the edge the pattern never strayed
And I had walked the street and stood the corner, never heard them cry
But now pounding in my chest the cadence of our boxcar lullabies

When the house went down we were still in it
With the notes that you'd tacked on the walls
And when my courage failed you couldn't forgive it
And lend me the pieces that you had collected for yours
