Downtown Train Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Album: Downtown Train

Outside another yellow moon
Has punched a hole in the nighttime
I climb through the window and down to the street
I'm 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 world

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
Oh, be careful of them in the dark

And if I was the one
You chose to be your only one
Oh baby now, can't you hear me now

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night is just the same
You leave me lonely now

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 fourway

You watch them as they fall
Ooh, they all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival, but they'll never win you back

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night, every night is just the same, you leave me lonely / Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night, every night is just the same, all upon a downtown train

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night, every night is just the same,
you leave me lonely
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where all my dreams just fall like the rain,
all upon a downtown train
