Slow Train

from by Hugh Doolan



I fell awake too late to realize
what the living like this it can do to your mind
I thought something bright would see the blues away
but it wasn't enough for to hear me say

I need a slow train to take me off this fast lane
Oh I need a slow train

armed with a smile to make it through the day
I suddenly remembered what had been a haze
the dumb dull lines of incomprehension
the headroom meetings I'd care not to mention

then later on it's gone by the wayside
nothing was wrong from relief I could sigh
you know though for sure you'll still keep it up
til the lid on your box it is firmly shut


from A Promised Land, released July 14, 2016
