I can see crashes on shore
let the seconds slide
by rail I wait so romanticized

Dawn of steam,
the kettle heats the tea I drink from sleep
by rail I await so eagerly

Counting change,
three spots on the track for you laid
I can see this morning slip away

Distant howl,
I can feel a shiver running down
I can see this morning take the crown

But you realize the rumble is yours
and the room it quakes and my shiver shakes
you seem to impress and steal my breath and
as a child I stared at your magic,
press you wide my eyes
your cold steel it seems so alive

Nickels down,
rush inside to peek through window shade
timid me I hide while pulses race

Steady roll,
big wheels turning heads by simple grace
eagerly we watch as pulses race

But you realize the rumble is yours
and the room it quakes and my shiver shakes
you seem to impress and steal my breath and
as a child I stared at your magic,
press you wide my eyes
your cold steel it seems so alive
And just once I can lay my hand upon your side
and feel your steady rumble
like a dream you are unstoppable
to you I am grateful,
you're my Wonder Continental
helping whispers between the eyes to come alive

and one hand cuts the rock like paper thin are views of hate held by closed eyes

But you realize the rumble is yours
and the room it quakes and my shiver shakes
you seem to impress and steal my breath and
as a child I stared at your magic,
press you wide my eyes
your cold steel it seems so alive
