"Under the Wire" as written by and Terrell H. Clark Carter Gravatt....
I need to feel redeemed.
I'm going sideways down,
An ever-winding road...
With an ever unbinding load,
Of a one-track mind,
Of a love that's lost somehow,
Of a flashing sign,
I'm under the wire now.

Under the wire,
I'm a train down the line.
Nothing left to lose or gain,
But distance over time.
Under the wire,
Over all that we've been through.
Tell me what to do to get to you.

I need to feel the breeze,
Of a new day's dawn.
I need to be released,
From the cold steel rail I'm on.
Shake the love for a woman.
Break the emotion overdrive.
Take the train to oblivion,
At the crossing of our lives.

Under the wire,
I'm a train down the line.
Nothing left to lose or gain,
But distance over time.
Under the wire,
Over all that we've been through.
Tell me what to do to get to you.

I need to feel redeemed.
I wear my heart on a grimy sleeve.
I bear the pressure of oil and moving steam.
Unaware of my gaining speed.
I'm prepared to move ahead, take the lead...

Under the wire,
I'm a train down the line.
With nothing left to lose or gain,
But distance over time.
Under the wire,
Over all that we've been through.
Tell me what to do to get to you.

I am a steel freight train...
I am a train wreck, hauling back to you.

    General Commentok, so this song is about a man and a woman, and their relationship.

    He is the train, and the railroad he's travelling on is their relationship (over all that we've been through), and he's trying to get to the woman, who is at the end of the line .

    The only thing that matters to the man anymore is her (Nothing left to lose or gain, but distance over time)

    Well, that's my interpretation of the song. I'm wondering if this song has a connection with love, loss, hope, repeat, because it mentions a train line in that song too.

    Just a few errors i noticed -
    "A never unbinding load" not "An ever inviting node"
    "Unaware of my gain in speed" not "Unaware if i'm gaining speed"
    "I am a train wreck, haulin' back to you" not "I hand my train-wrecked heart back to you"
