Great song | Reviewer: Carmen | 8/28/09
Love this song!
He expresses true feelings. Feelings people feel as the years go by. True, train cannot be stopped...life goes on, people get older and at times you wish you could actually stop time and go back; but we just can't. It's a scary thought, but in the end it's like we're living off our past. If we didn't have those memories, then we wouldn't have feelings. I'm a huge John Mayer fan. His music is so...inspirational...moving...he just keeps it real and the guitar sounds are simply beautiful.
Cure | Reviewer: Danica | 6/17/09
This song really helps me calm down whenever i get those really sad thoughts about having to go to college, leave my parents and having to do things on my own. I mean, yeah I understand that eventually that'll all happen but I'm not ready. Just like what Mayer said..
"I wanna get off
And go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in"
I know I can't stop time but hey, I'm full of memories and I'll forever reminisce about all those wonderful moments. Thank heavens for John Mayer and his music :D!
I love it!!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/6/09
I know this may sound werid but this song changed my look on life!! Everything happens for a reason and that is a good one. Am I right? Life is like a rollercoster you can be so happy one min then realize it was all a missunderstanding. I love this song so much and that will not change!!

I love this song 'cause it shows that everyone try to change things that are impossible to change, like get older.
and that if you look better there are more things that make you feel good than bad
and for finish someday you'll look behind and see how it was good.
My fist real love sing this song for me when we broke up ant it changed my seen of the world
:) | Reviewer: sloan | 3/22/09
i fell in love with this song the first time i heard it. it shows that everyone is a little bit scared of change and the issues that can come with it. but even if we are scared, we have to suck it up and face it, knowing everything's gunna be alright. life's a constant cycle, and for every bad day there's a good one. without the bad things, we wouldnt be able to experience the good. my motto? except the worst but hope for the best. because it could turn out the way you want it for once.
amazing !! | Reviewer: GFC | 3/19/09
well... i think everyone here said lots of things that really fits into this song.
BUt one of the things that i feel when i listen to it, is the other side of a feeling, a person's feeling which is famous and conquered FANS all over the world.
Most of us wanted to be in John's skin, being famous and being really talented, BUT all the glory has a SAD side, which is being AWAY from people you really love and you know that really cares about you, cause in this "road" you'll meet lots of people but neither half of it loves you, likes you in a trully way, your famous and all kinds of people wants to meet you, know for several reasons, good reasons and bad reason.
"WHO DO YOU LOVE? ME OR THE THOUGHT OF ME ??"
anyway, thanks John, this is music in its purest way.
Thought I was the only one | Reviewer: Pambo | 3/12/09
I heard this song for the first time ever a couple weeks ago. John was on Austin City Limits. Too tired to reach for the remote to turn off the TV, my husband and I laid in bed and listened. Stop This Train was playing and we heard the sweetest melodies and such beautiful guitar playing that it woke me out of a near sleep.
The next morning I had to find that song again and I haven't stopped listening to it. I too think that in a time where most songs consist of lyrics about people's body parts and what they like to do with them, it is more than refreshing to hear a masterfully done, lyrical treat such as this one.
At 47 so much is going on in my life that I often refer to my being 'shot out of a cannon'. I've experienced the loss of a child, both my parents, my sister and countless friends and relatives.
Imagine finding that those older than you are on the same train--we aren't all going the same place, but we are all on the train. The advice "Don't for a minute change the place you're in" is priceless. I have often wanted off the train, but those before me couldn't stop it either.
One day I listened to it and started crying and couldn't stop. These posts are even making me tear up. The song is incredibly powerful and moving. I keep a list of songs that I wish I'd written. Today I added Stop this Train. God bless you, John!
So true | Reviewer: Johan B.A. | 2/16/09
"Don't know how else to say it
Don't want to see my parents go"
That is so true, when you are just a kid, like me, you think they are going to be around forever, you don't really dare to think they might go away some day..
the honesty of our denial | Reviewer: gooch | 2/7/09
i listen to this song and read the lyrics and i realise how much we deny that we age, that we are scared, but this song makes me think of myself when i was a kid at 10 and now at 26 and how life has changed, how perspectives have changed, my girl is goin to korea in 6 days and i have been with her for the last 4 yrs, at one stage i thought we'd get married, now i dont even know what the hell is goin on in my life, all i have is hope, but none the less no one will stop this train and i have to continue the ride, this song can make any one cry, truly beautiful! this song highlights those truths we deny as the time passes by!
losing my mother | Reviewer: chris | 1/12/09
when i listen to this song it make me think of a lot... from when i decided i was going to join the navy and leave my girlfriend and sick mother. it makes me think about life and how it seems so to take sooo long for time to pass but in reality we all want it to go just a little slower.
"Once in awhile, when it's good
It'll feel like it should
And they're all still around
And you're still safe and sound
And you don't miss a thing
Till you cry when you're driving away in the dark"
this part always makes me cry because when i visit my sick mother at UCLA MED. i feel that things are going to be ok and that i have everything under control (i have always been the one to help everyone) but when i leave in the night and in early AM hour when the sky is still black i listin to this song and then it hits me every time, I wont miss a thing
Till I cry when I'm driving away in the dark. this is very powerful song and i really dont know how to finish this up....
The effects of JM's songs is amazing | Reviewer: marti | 12/30/08
I'm a big fan of John and I'm 59 soon to be 68 as I listen to this song though, I'm right back at 16, 28, 37, 42 watching my life wiz past me, out of control, and I'm just a passenger on this train...not the engineer that I like to think I am.
John Mayer is so in touch with reality in all his songs. Thanks John....you put the words to our lives.
The Ages | Reviewer: Jake | 12/24/08
You know as i saw down there.... at Kelesy's review... she said there are people from 13 - 60 on this page alone.... all different ages, different backgrounds and it brings people together, and thats great... But i must say... music is the on thing that brings everything into place, its realitive, same as this song, for one it means the work day, and for another it means a life time.... what ever it is, please dont "disclaimer" youself, by saying "well im only 13," or "yeah i know im only 20 but.."
No guys, this song is about life, and if your 5, 10, 13, 20, youve had life.... i dont care how "bad" it is, cause bad is a realitive term.... we have bad days.... and for every bad day, theres a song like this... So enjoy one of the great minds of music, and never count your self out of a great tune, due to your age.
Pass this on, cause I think everyone should hear this... no matter if its music, or something else...
Have a great time
Humbling experience | Reviewer: DJ Aphlatoon | 12/18/08
It's a great pleasure to know that in current times when people are obsessed with sex and all the songs are about how to get the number of the next girl in the club, there is someone out there who took time to write this song and put perfect music and melody to go with it.
Beutiful | Reviewer: Jordan | 11/27/08
I thought this song was beutiful and I felt so stupid but i started bawling my eyes out and I'm only thirteen but I totaly understand.It makes me think of my grandma and home videos and I want to cry for the whole night but i know I shouldnt and it makes me feel lik everything is going to go so quickly and I too think sometimes lik watever its not going to make a difference if i did something different but this song really makes me sad and yet happy but the part about his dad is what makes me sob
<3 | Reviewer: Kelsey | 11/22/08
I love how this song can reach across generation lines. There are comments from people aged 13-60 on this page alone. I can't believe how something so simple as a song can bring so many very different people together.
This is what music is all about, isn't it?
