Think I'm gonna pass out
Think I'll just lay down right here
Would someone turn the light out?
I'll cover myself with a jecket, and I'll still
Catch the last ride on a Brooklyn train
30 years old and nothing's changed

(Chorus)
And I'll rise to greet you in the morning time
It's an honest thing, and honest things they last

Spent hours on a landline,
hopin' you would find time for me
Showed up at your door, it was a scene I was so sure
you would be free
I should have caught a ride on a Brooklyn train
Meet me on the corner and I'll entertain

(Chorus)

I think they're gonna come and carry me away from you

    General CommentI thought it was like this:

    Think I'm gonna pass out
    Think I'll just lay down right here
    Someone turn the light out
    I'll cover myself with a jacket
    And I'll still
    Catch the last ride on a Brooklyn train
    Thirty years old and nothing's changed

    Spent hours on the land line
    Hoping you would find time
    For me
    Showed up at your door
    It was a scene I was so sure
    You would be free

    I should've cought a ride on a Brooklyn train
    Thirty years old and nothing's changin'

    And I'll rise
    To greet you
    In the morning
    Light

    And I'll rise
    To greet you
    In the morning

    Try to hard to ignore
    All the feelings I have for you
    They won't leave

    I'm so crazy
    How I wish that you could come around
    And we could meet

    So catch the last ride on a Brooklyn train
    Meet me on the corner and I'll entertain

    And I'll rise
    To greet you
    In the morning
    Time

    And I'll rise
    To greet you
    In the morning

    It's an honest thing
    And honest things they last

    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    From you

    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    Think they're gonna come and carry me away
    From you
    From you
    From you

    General CommentThis song is beautiful and fantastic. I really think he's talking to a girl that broke up with him - he's still in love with her, and she doesn't have time for him. I like your idea too though. The best songs are those that mean a lot in different ways to different people.
