Stop This Train [Acoustic Set]
by John Mayer



No I'm not color blind
I know the world is black and white
I try to keep an open mind
But I just can't sleep on this tonight

[Chorus]
Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in
I know I can't
But honestly, won't someone stop this train

Don't know how else to say it,
I don't want to see my parents go
One generation's length away
From fighting life out on my own

[Chorus]

So scared of getting older
I'm only good at being young
So I play the numbers game
To find away to say that life has just begun

Had a talk with my old man
Said "help me understand"
He said "turn sixty-eight"
"You'll renegotiate"

"Don't stop this train
Don't for a minute change the place you're in
And don't think I couldn't ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we'll never stop this train"

Once in a while, when it's good
It'll feel like it should
When you'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.

Singing stop this train I want to get out and go home again
I can't take this speed it's moving in
I know I can't
'Cause now I see I'm never gonna stop this train
