Train Coming - Gathering Time

from Tribes Hill - We're All Here

Train Coming    [words & music: Glen Roethel]

  "Hold on. Here comes the light!"
 
  There's a train - there's a train coming
  Coming down to carry me home

I'm lost in a desert, lookin' for a little freedom
If I survive this trial
I'll work harder than you can imagine
But it might take some compassion
My tongue is swollen - crackin' in the heat
Please forget these borders, I need water
After all, I'm only human

  Wake me up in the middle of the night to say,    
  "Hold on. Here comes the light."
  There's a train - there's a train coming
  Coming down to carry me home

I'm crossin' the border
Seeking refuge in a strange land
I might be frightened but imagine
What it took to abandon my own home
I left behind all my friends and my family
We couldn't travel together underground
Now I jump with every little sound
If I'm found, I don't know where they might send me

  Wake me up in the middle of the night to say,    
  "Hold on. Here comes the light."
  There's a train - there's a train coming
  Coming down to carry me home
