You may not believe it
But I don't believe in miracles anymore
And when I think about it
I don't believe I ever did for sure
All the things I've said in songs 
All the purple prose you bought from me
Reality's just black and white 
The sentimental things I'd write  Never meant that much to me

I used to be the main express 
All steam and whistles heading west
 Picking up my pain from door to door
 Riding on the Storyline, furnace burning overtime 
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

You don't need to hear it
But I'm dried-up and sick to death of love
If you really need to know it
I never really understood that stuff 
All the stars and bleeding hearts
All the tears that welled up in my eyes
 Never meant a thing to me
Read 'em as they say and weep
I never felt enough to cry

I used to be the main express 
All steam and whistles heading west
 Picking up my pain from door to door
 Riding on the Storyline, furnace burning overtime 
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

When I say that I don't care
It really means my engine's breaking down
The chisel chips my heart again
The granite cracks beneath my skin
I crumble into pieces on the ground 

I used to be the main express 
All steam and whistles heading west
 Picking up my pain from door to door
 Riding on the Storyline, furnace burning overtime 
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

Oh, yeah
