Lyrics

WAITING ON A TRAIN
Words & music copyright 2001 Gaunce/Miller


Picking up the phone she drops
Tryin? to call the local cops
Seems like they never hang around here at midnight

He layin? outside in the rain
Too far gone to feel the pain
Another junkie?s lights dim that?s alright

A striking bride without a groom
Sits inside a hotel room
Pondering her future after checkout

Followed by a sea of lace
A thin white veil conceals her face
She walks on wondering what it?s all about

Counting change stashed in a ancient coffee cup
Ah, those pennies they won?t take her far enough

Waiting on a hero, waiting in the rain
Waiting on redemption, waiting in vain
Waiting on a saviour waiting on a train

Rolling through the countryside
Towns pass unidentified
A whistle blows signaling the next one

She exits in an unknown place
& trying to recall his face
She removes a photograph she?s showed to no-one

Memories through all the tears
Memories throughout the years
These memories won?t take her far enough

Waiting on a hero, waiting in the rain
Waiting on redemption, waiting in vain
Waiting on a saviour waiting on a train

Solo

A striking bride without a groom
Sits inside a hotel room
Pondering her future after checkout

Waiting on a hero, waiting in the rain
Waiting on redemption, waiting in vain
Waiting on a saviour waiting on a train

Repeat
Out
