Downtown Train Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Outside another yellow moon
Punched a hole in the nighttime, yes
I climb through the window and down the street
Shining like a new dime
The downtown trains are full with all those Brooklyn girls
They try so hard to break out of their little worlds
Verse 2
You wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh if I was the one
You chose to be your only one
Oh baby can't you hear me now
Verse 0
Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train
Every night is just the same
You leave me lonely now
Verse 3
I know your window and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four way
You watch them as they fall
They all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival
But they'll never win you back
Verse 4
Verse 5
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night is just the same you leave me lonely
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
All of my dreams just fall like rain
All upon a downtown train
