Il testo di Downtown Train

Outside another yellow moon
Punched a hole in the nighttime, yes
I climb through the window and down
the street
Shining like a new dime
The downtown trains are full
With all those Brooklyn girls
They try so hard to break out of their
little worlds

You wave your hand and they scatter like
crows
They have nothing that will ever capture
your heart
They’re just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh if I was the one
You chose to be your only one
Oh baby can’t you hear me now

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Every night it’s just the same
You leave me lonely, now

I know your window and I know it’s late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four way
You watch them as they fall
They all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival
But they’ll never win you back

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Where every night it’s just the same
You leave me lonely
Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
All of my dreams just tall like rain
All upon a downtown train
