Songs from the West Coast

This Train Don't Stop There Anymore

You may not believe it
But I don't believe in miracles anymore
And when I think about it
I don't believe I ever did for sure
All the things I've said in songs
All the purple prose you bought from me
Realities just black and white
The sentimental things I'd write
Never meant that much to me

I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

You don't need to hear it
But I'm tired and sick to death of love
If you really need to know it
I never really understood that stuff
All the stars and bleeding hearts
All the tears that welled up in my eyes
Never meant a thing to me
Read 'em as they say and weep
I never felt enough to cry

I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

When I say that I don't care
It really means my engines breaking down
The chisel chips my heart again
The granite cracks beneath my skin
I crumble into pieces on the ground

I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime
But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore

But this train don't stop
This train don't stop
This train don't stop there anymore


昨天晚上给寝室同学安利Jing.fm这个网站,然后想起来作为推荐人的我也好久没去了,于是登录Jing,shuffle到这首。
副歌部分那种过尽千帆的沧桑感和决绝,也是听得心底一颤。如此好像只在那个时代的北美音乐圈出现,另一位比较熟悉的是Bryan Adams吧~

有时该心痛的时候,我感受到的不是“心”或者“头”疼,而是胃底泛起的一阵恶寒。然后我尝试喝点热水,可似乎也没有什么作用,恶寒还是恶寒。


背景音乐, This Train Don't Stop There Anymore,选自Elton John的专辑《Songs from the West Coast》。
