Two Trains

(Words and Music By Andy Hill)

I've been circling in orbit around you since the day you were born or before
What I couldn't see then you don't believe now
As I wash up again on your shore
Still, footprints of desperate longing fall like feathers up and down my street
There among the remains a tale of two trains
Never again to meet

One for never, one for now
Between the tracks I ran somehow
Your outstretched hand was a wave good-bye
We ride two trains that can't connect
We just collide

My love for you in your absence has grown certain and more complete
Letting you go is like stopping the tide as it circles around my feet
I'm paralyzed like that statue, who never shoulda tried to look back
Frozen in love on a burning locomotive
And smokin' on down the track

One for never, one for now
Between the trains I ran somehow
Your outstretched hand was a wave good-bye
We ride two trains that can't connect
We just collide

I have a childhood memory that hasn't left me yet
I hear the night's refrain across the prairie silhouette
Of a harmonica, some lonely hound
Or a train from Saskatchewan to Quebec
Now it don't mean nothin' 'cept the passing of time
And two trains I can't forget
