Cowboy Junkies - Last Spike Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Mornings feel so damn sad these days
  • without the call of the 8:15
  • That old familiar echo
  • has finally died away
  • leaving nothing but a chill
  • where there once was a mighty scream
  • And I've watched the flat cars
  • take away our timber
  • I've watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that we've got
  • nothing left to take we're told
  • that the wheels will stop turning,
  • the whistles will stop blowing,
  • these foolish dreams must stop
  • Last year they closed down the post office,
  • took the only flag we had in town
  • That old brick building
  • still stands like a cenotaph
  • to a vision lost and buried in
  • a very distant past
  • And I've watched the flat cars
  • take away our timber
  • I've watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that we've got
  • nothing left to take we're told
  • that the wheels will stop turning,
  • the whistles will stop blowing,
  • these foolish dreams must stop
  • The longest train I've ever seen
  • was the train that you were on
  • I walked you to the station,
  • we kissed and you were gone
  • I dream at night about you coming home
  • The train in the station,
  • your uniform on fire
  • as you step onto the platform
  • the band plays a little louder,
  • and as we embrace your cap falls off
  • Oh, I guess these foolish dreams must stop
  • Mornings feel so damn sad these days
  • without the call of the 8:15
  • Looks like this town is finally
  • going to die away
  • leaving nothing but broken promises
  • where there once was small town dreams
  • And I've watched the flat cars
  • take away our timber
  • I've watched the coal cars steal our rock
  • And now that we've got
  • nothing left to take we're told
  • that the TV station will be closing,
  • Main Street windows will need boarding,
  • that these foolish dreams must stop
