fast train to the blues                                                     
lately the full moon
is empty and dark
love like a whirlwind
tore us apart

i can’t see the future
in my rearview mirror
my headlights search all night
for where the world disappeared

i didn’t know when you gave me your heart
wrapped up in ribbons and bows
across the sky like a shooting star
you’d burn brightly then go
falling down like the tears of a clown
are these raindrops on my shoes
i never knew loving you
was a fast train to the blues

the red dress i bought you
that you left behind
looks lost without you
hanging on the line


i didn’t know when you gave me your heart
wrapped up in ribbons and bows
‘cross the sky like a shooting star
you’d burn brightly then go
falling down like the tears of a clown
are these raindrops on my shoes
i never knew loving you
was a fast train to the blues
a fast train to the blues

the red dress i bought you
that you left behind
it looks lost without you
hanging on the line
out on the line
