Stories on the Train

Single seat on a city train
I sit and stare through a dirty pane
Train fills as we leave each station
Tales of love and desperation

Single mum works a bar out west
Servin' liquor to drunks who stare at her chest
Got a one-room flat where she brings up a daughter
Got a habit too makes her brain go to water

Life rushes by outside the window
Stories on the train
Every face you see hides a drama
Stories on the train

Flashy lawyer in a suit and tie
Combs his hair thinking 'bout ways to die
Teenage beauty with her skirt too short
Got a baby on board she gonna need to abort


Every one of these souls is dealing with their own pain
Go to bed every night, hopin' and prayin'
That life will somehow get better
If they can just hold on

We all think that it's only us
Whose life is full of fightin' and fuss
We're all scared and we're all self-doubtin'
Truth is we're all climbing our own mountain
