"Locomotive" as written by and James/ruttner Patterson....
Wish I cared about the things you care about, but I don't.
Your scrill and the bars and the lake and the stars, but I don't

Hey we may, hey we may,
You know my name, you know my name
Hey we may, hey we may
Know your name, I know your name

I wish I cared about the things you cared about but I don't.
Your locomotive, keep going keep going no focus.
Locomotive slow down, slow down.

Now come on call me sugar, call her honey, call me darling.
But I leave it at the door cause nobody saying nothing.

Hey we may, hey we may
You know my name, you know my name
Hey we may, hey we may
I know your name.
I wish I cared about the things you care about but I don't.

Your locomotive, keep going keep going no focus.
Locomotive slow down, slow down.
Look down on what you started.
Look down on what you started.
Look down on what you started.
Look down.

Locomotive, keep going keep going don't focus
Locomotive slow down, slow down
Look down on what you started
Look down on what you started
Look down on what you started
Look down

Now look down on what you started
Keep goin' keep goin keep goin'
Now look down on what you started
Keep goin' keep goin' slow down.

    Lyric CorrectionNot sure what the actual lyric is, but I'm fairly certain it isn't "your grill"

    Really digging this song though.

    General CommentBeautiful song.

    I'd love to hear it as a duet sung between a boy and a girl. Such a good fit with the "I wish I cared about the things you care about" and "hey we may, I know your name" parts.

    Lyric Correctioni don't know if these are the correct lyrics, but they're not here anymore, so i'll just put what i think it is:

    i wish i cared about the things you care about, but i don't
    your scrill and the bars and the lakes and the stars, but i don't

    hey we may, hey we may,
    you know my name, you know my name
    hey we may, hey we may
    i know your name

    i wish i cared about the things you cared about but i don't
    your locomotive, keep going keep going no focus
    locomotive slow down, slow down

    now come on call me sugar, call her honey, call me darling
    but i leave it at the door cause nobody saying nothing

    hey we may, hey we may
    you know my name, you know my name
    hey we may, hey we may
    i know your name
    i wish i cared about the things you care about but i don't

    your locomotive, keep going keep going no focus
    locomotive slow down, slow down
    look down on what you started
    look down on what you started
    look down on what you started
    look down

    locomotive, keep going keep going don't focus
    locomotive slow down, slow down
    look down on what you started
    look down on what you started
    look down on what you started
    look down

    now look down on what you started
    keep goin' keep goin keep goin'
    now look down on what you started
    keep goin' keep goin' slow down

    My InterpretationIt seems like a really simple song to me. The girl is being bombarded by a guy's advances and she really doesn't feel a particular connection to him, or even really care about him at all. She refers to him as a locomotive because he's forcing things to move quickly, even though he'd probably get a lot farther with her if he'd just slow down and take the time to get to know her.
