Written by Laura Collins, performed with the Back Porch Blues Band

lyrics

This Train - Laura Collins
Some holes are so big, you can't fill them
No tears, no dirt, no conversation
Some things are lost, we can't keep them
No look, no love, no compensation
But I see you standing at the station

And I say roll like you're riding with the top down
Roll with the ones who make your heart sing
Roll with your eyes upon the glory
One thing I know, this train's gonna roll

Some things gonna slide, you can't stop them
No lock, no love, no dedications
Some thing won't stick, you can't make them
No force, no fix, no education
But I see you standing at the station

And I say roll like you're riding with the top down
Roll with the ones who make your heart sing
Roll with your eyes upon the glory
One thing I know...

Is you been dining with regret, dining with regret
and you been sleeping with your doubt, sleeping with your doubt
Oh but life is on your step, and love, love is in your house

Some holes are so big, you can't fill them
No tears, no dirt, no conversation
Some things are lost, we can't keep them
No look, no love, no compensation
But I see you standing at the station

And I say roll like you're riding with the top down
Roll with the ones who make your heart sing
Roll with your eyes upon the glory
One thing I know, this train's gonna roll
Yeah, this train's gonna roll (repeated)
