The Magnetic Fields Born on a Train Lyrics

Last updated: 12/13/2009 10:00:00 AM

Some roads are only seen at night.
Ghost roads, nothing but neon signs.
But some nights the neon gas gets free-
And turns into walking dead like me.

And I've been making promises I know I'll never keep.
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep.
I'll have to go when the whistle blows-
The whistle knows my name.
Baby, I was born on a train.

Well I know that you were never young,
And I know you probably won't get old.
But honey, nobody's gonna hurt you anymore.
And nobody's gonna make you wanna die.

And I've been making promises I know I'll never keep.
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep.
I'll have to go when the whistle blows-
The whistle knows my name.
Baby, I was born on a train.

I'll go some cold and gray morning.
And you won't remember anything.
Well some people don't believe in time.
And some of us don't believe in life.

And I've been making promises I know I'll never keep.
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep.
I'll have to go when the whistle blows-
The whistle knows my name.
Baby, I was born on a train...

Baby, I was born on a train...
