"Graffiti on the Train" as written by and Kelly Jones....
Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train oh no
Roll in to her life
Oh the graffiti on the train oh

Stepped outside he left his lover sleeping
Rain falls he's drowning in his secret
Wet streets are quiet as a church hall
Last house where children kick the football

Cross roads his heart is beating faster
Getting close to asking her the question
"Marry me" he wants to paint the words on
The night train he's hiding with his spray cans
And that is going to ride
When the paint is done and dried oh come on

Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh she'll never be the same oh no
Roll in to her life
Oh the graffiti on the train oh

Day breaks as lovely as she wakes up
Sips her cup and dusts her face in make up
Black phone she hears the people whisper
Someone died themselves train has slipped up

Train comes the coach she's always used to
The doors read a "Marry me I love you"
Heart stops ecstatic and suspicious
She makes the call but he don't pick the phone up
The train sped down the line
It was last train he would ride oh no

Oh graffiti on the train
Oh graffiti on the train
Oh graffiti on the train
Oh she will never be the same
Oh god rolling back into her life
Oh graffiti on the train oh

    Song MeaningThe song is about a guy who's about to propose to his girlfriend. His idea is to spray the words "marry me i love you" on the train his girlfriend rides daily, so he sneaks out at night to do so. He sprays the words on the door of the train, but he falls and he died. The morning comes and his girlfriend follows her routine of riding the train, not knowing he's dead. Someone tells her about a guy that slipped under the train and died, and when the train comes she reads the words "marry me i love you" and is suspicious the man that died might've been her boyfriend. So she calls him, and he doesn't pick up. That's basically when she realizes he's the guy that slipped under the train
