Stop This Train

LK Ludwig has this great idea on her blog...So today, post lyrics of a song that move you...

“Stop This Train” by John Mayer REALLY speaks to me! In fact, I’ve thought a lot about the words to this song lately...And it’s my fave to listen to on my walks with Lucy...

“Stop This Train”, Continuum, John Mayer:

No, I'm not colorblind

I know the world is black and white


Try to keep an open mind


But I just can't sleep on this tonight


Stop this train


I wanna get off


And go home again


I can't take the speed it's moving in


I know I can't


But honestly, won't someone stop this train?


Don't know how else to say it


Don't want to see my parents go


One generation's length away


From fighting life out on my own


Stop this train


I wanna get off


And go home again


I can't take the speed it's moving in


I know I can't


But honestly, won't someone stop this train?


So scared of getting older


I'm only good at being young


So I play the numbers game


To find a way to say that life has just begun


Had a talk with my old man


Said "help me understand"


He said "turn sixty-eight


You renegotiate"


"Don't stop this train


Don't for a minute change the place you're in


And don't think I couldn't ever understand


I tried my hand


John, honestly we'll never stop this train"


Once in awhile, when it's good


It'll feel like it should


And they're all still around


And you're still safe and sound


And you don't miss a thing


Till you cry when you're driving away in the dark


Singing


Stop this train


I wanna get off


And go home again


I can't take the speed it's moving in


I know I can


Cause now I see I'll never stop this train

What song moves YOU?
