"Just Can't Take a Train" as written by and Bruce....
The last thing on your lips were mine
And the last thing in my arms was you running blind
So you can see, how it might have caught me, a little off guard
That some 3 a.m. train left for Denver in the rain
With you and my heart

[Chorus]
And I just can't take a train
I just can't take the whistle or the wheels
That lonely sound, running out, on cold rails of steel
I just can't take the leavin', or you not looking back
And to this day, I just can't take a train

There's something 'bout those stations late at night
The way that silver arrow cuts a dawn horizon,
Just like a knife it reminds me of you
And that night we broke through the ice

Colorado all aboard and you rolled out like a storm
Without goodbye

[Chorus]

You could've woke me up and said I'm sorry
But this is how it's got to be
'Cause a one rail nowhere
Is such a lonely way to leave
I just can't take the leavin', or you not even looking back
And to this day, I just can't take a train
Oh, to this day, I just can't take a train.
