Train Down Town
Song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro
These are lyrics for the intro to the Empire Falls soundtrack by Paul Grabowsky
Read along to my Spoken Verse Performance!
First Music Sample
Back on the train down town
Watching her walk down the isle.
Glanced my way then sat down.
With such style.
Second Music Sample
But I can’t say: “Howdy do?”
‘til she smiles.
Third Music Sample
Yet on the train I feel such joy and hope in my heart…
Oh what a start.
Fourth Music Sample
My life is clean floors and flags unfurled.
Her life is diamonds, and black pearls.
A fine swiss time piece.
Yeah, we’re from different worlds.
Fifth Music Sample
No more train rides each day
Got a new job near my home, yeah.
Still think of what
May have been, with a poem.
