Lyrics Stars – The Passenger


Night train right on time
Climb the steel stairs
Absinthe brandy wine

spirits moving in the steam
Compartment forest green
the rattle of the rails
you fall into a dream
high clouds in the sky
Moon goes racing by
another sleepless night
so you speed into daylight

Here comes another strange town
Here comes another breakdown
And you can run forever
They’ll catch you now or never

In the tainted car
and then later in the bar
you see yourself reflected
I wonder who you are
The passengers asleep
dream of secrets that they keep
in the cabin next to you
A woman starts to weep

The things you knew all fall away
The things you had all disappear
As if you were never here


And when you arrive

You’re not sure if you’re alive
all the passengers are gone
Everybody except one
station quiet, station still
nothing moves, nothing will
put your hand up to your face
There are things you can’t replace

chorus x2
