On The Tracks They Came

lyrics

Get home quickly, Melanie, the bells are callin’ fast,
They are breathing through the ether like a cavalcade of brass.
And those tickets on your nightstand wear the dust of places past.
Will atonement bring them back?

It was evident that heaven didn’t sway you in your steps:
There were engines in the evening and an echo in my head.
So I sipped away the silence, ‘til I slipped on what you said.
Did you see them painted red?

When we belong, I’ll say that they were wrong.
And while you’re gone, I’ll leave that twilight on.

So speak like you’re supposed to, and I’ll make like I’m alive,
And with those highway lines to guide us we will suture this divide.
I’d like to try again – ah, Melanie I see you brushing by.

When we belong, I’ll say that they were wrong.
And while you’re gone, I’ll leave that twilight on.

On the tracks they came to steal my love away.
On the tracks they came to steal my love away.
On the tracks they came to steal my love away.
(On the tracks they came to steal my love away.)
On the tracks they came to steal my love away.
(On the tracks they came to steal my love away.)

When we belong, I’ll say that they were wrong.
And while you’re gone, I’ll leave that twilight on.

When we belong, I’ll say that they were wrong
(On the tracks they came to steal my love away.)
And while you’re gone, I’ll leave that twilight on.
(On the tracks they came to steal my love away.)
