  • 06:05 Story Lyrics
    Downtown Train

    Outside, another yellow moon
    Has punched a hole in the nightime mist
    I climb out the window and down to the street
    I'm shining like a new dime
    Downtown trains are full
    Of all those Brooklyn girls
    They try so hard to break out of their little world

    Well, you wave your hand
    And they scatter like crows
    Yeah, nothing that will ever capture your heart
    Just thorns without the rose
    Be careful of them in the dark
    If I was the one
    You chose to be your only one...
    Can't you hear me, now?
    Can't you hear me, now?

    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    Where every night it's just the same

    I know your window
    And I know it's late
    I know your stairs and your doorway
    Walk down your street and past your gate
    Stand by the light of the four-way
    Watch them as they fall
    Babe, they all have heart attacks
    They'll stay at the carnival
    But they can never bring you back

    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    Where every night it's just the same
    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    All of my dreams
    Just fall like rain.
    On a downtown train
