Trains on train tracks are made to come back
From every place that they’ve ever been
Seven-thirty Sunday of the week
I knew she’d leave me but not like this

You know you’re the reason that I felt alive out here
So alone I’ve waiting for my chance to disappear

The wooden sleepers, the girders lie still
Are cold reminders of what you had to do
We’re not like train tracks
(We’re not like train tracks)
Sometimes we have to move
(sometimes we have to move)
And never come back
(and never come back)
Despite the things we lose

You know you’re the reason I felt alive out here
So alone I’ve waiting for my chance to disappear
This town is just a strip of bars and streets with common names
It’s strange to know you’ll watch me as I slowly move away

Trains on train tracks are made to come back

    Lyric CorrectionI believe that some of these lyrics are incorrect here are what i think that they are/should be:

    for so long i've been waiting for my chance to disappear
    The wooden sleepers, the girders lying still
    It's strange to know you'll watch me as I slowly pull away
    also, I think that the third line is wrong but I can't for the life of me figure out what he's saying

    General CommentAlso that third line there should be "Seven thirty, Sunday off-peak"... off-peak is a train time used on the Long Island Rail Road, where the Narrative originates.
