"Train" as written by and Sonya Kitchell....
I've just taken a seat on the train
I walk through busy streets
Down a shadowy lane
I just got my ticket for the ride
There's no turning back now
No matter what I decide

Steel body moves fast
Hinges pounding against the ground
I sink into my seat now
I pray for it to speed up
While I wish it would slow down

My body quivers with anticipation
For what lies ahead
Wood is thrown on to the fire
That cries out to be fed
Mist shrouds the dawn
And so ahead, I cannot see
The train, it moves ever forward
Into the misty sea

There's so many faces
Most of the time I feel so alone
There's so many places
Will I ever stop?
And own my own home

I know I'm gonna get there
But I'm not sure when
Nor do I know where I'm going
So I won't pretend
I cannot see beyond the horizon
Nor around the bend
The train it moves ever forward
Without to see the end

Out of one window
I saw rain
I looked through the other
And I felt the warm suns rays
The wind, it gently blew across my weary shoulder
And time whispered in my ear, "Child, you're just gonna keep getting older."
But I've done nothing more
Than take a seat
On this here train
Yet my life turned upside
And only, only the little things remain
