The leaves on the table are all turning grey The first time she saw you she hoped you were gay It's hard to recover when you're the disease But I'm ready I swear it, i'm walking around in these Railway shoes In my railway shoes The ghost of your father is Right by your side He's so close to you that he's almost inside He's guiding your head and he's guiding your limbs -- But he isn't you, and you know you're not him In your railway shoes In your railway shoes Take the train, take the other train, mister, and stand by (Take the train...) Take the train, take the other train, honey -- and ride (Take the train) Madam I burn for you night after day I'm empty without you and colder than clay The wax on my body is making me cold But I'll never be able to go where I'm told in my Railway shoes In my railway shoes In my railway shoes In my railway shoes Take the train, take the other train, honey -- and stand by Take the train -- take the other train, mister -- and ride Ride Ride Ride
