I'm on a train and I can't breath
But it shows me how and why to leave
as I ride for me, and I sigh for you

I'm on a train and I can't breath
But it shows me how and why to leave
as I ride for me, and I sigh for you

An old man sitting next to me (next to me)
Stares at me and adjusts his seat (adjusts his seat)
As he speaks to me and he speaks, for you

I know that I don't mind
and i know that you don't mind
but just ignore the passing time out there
curse your life and you'll be fine, i swear

I'm on a plane and I can't see
all the cows and hills and trees
as i feel my head resting on my knees

Slip one hand in my pocket and I
Pull out a dime and I flip it high
As it's heads for me and tails, for you

Maybe it should be a crime
To trust your life to one small dime
But I know that I don't mind
And I know this time that you won't mind

I'm on a train and I can't breath
Flipping coins for best out of three
as I cry for me, and I cry for you
