Train Tracks


By Hepnova


On Struggling

We met when we were both in high school
Her daddy was in politics, her momma taught kung fu
Like eagles on the scene, we were royal and cruel
But neither of us knew exactly what we wanted to do

Fries at Sonic in the dead of night
We ruled this town by divine right
We shook our youth in the face of law and
We'd drive beyond the train tracks

We had a Friday night movie date
I was early to the theater, but it soon got late
I stood outside in the neon glue
Waited there for hours 'cause I had nothing better to do

I called her house at half-past ten
Wondering where in blazes she had been
Her momma picked up, my feet fused to the floor
She said I couldn't be with my baby no more

My baby lies beyond the train tracks
My love lies beyond the train tracks
My baby lies beyond the train tracks
Ruins my weekend

Tears filled my eyes as I ran from the booth
I ran to the cop station on Second Street
Bust through the door, face to face with the chief
He said "You calm down, boy, or I'm hafta put you to sleep!"

"What happened to my baby?" I screamed in his face
I threw his stuff all over the place
They cuffed me up and they slapped me about
They said "You sit here boy until you chill out."

My baby lies beyond the train tracks
My love lies beyond the train tracks
My baby lies beyond the train tracks
Ruins my weekend

I ran in tears, the cops' heads shakin'
I ran way out beyond the station
Ran to the place where she'd screamed her last
And now,
I'm standing here beyond the train tracks
