Back to the lyrics overview

Would you go outside
I asked you to leave
I had enough of this ruckus
I wanna sleep
You say you’re feeling lonely
I got to agree
I feel it coming slowly
Slowly to me

Here comes, here comes the night train

Making a point in conversations
That I’ll never hold
Protect myself from rumours
That will never be told
Choking on beauty
I usually don’t even see
I’m living life through someone else
Looking at me

Here comes, here comes the night train

Now all the evil things I done
And all the harm I ever did
Stand right before me
Eyes wide open
Where were they hidden?

I’m gonna rip it up
Bring it down
Send it to hell
Somebody teach me something new
Somebody as guilty as me
Can break this spell

Here comes, here comes the night train

(Make it stop, oh I can’t make it stop it’s on again)

Get up
Put up
Open your eyes
Let the black-blooded vein
Come to your brain
Angels round here don’t sing
They have a curse upon me
The shame
The lovers
The tricks
The blessings
The rebound
The future
Is used
It feels like you used it up
I look at you
I pity you
I dream of you
What are you?
Drop a name
Leave it there
Bruise a heart
Leave it there
Pay the entrance
Leave it there
Get some style
Cut your hair

Shouldn’t be this
Shouldn’t be that
Take the heat
Take a kick, man
Try to get a grip on these times
Cause the harder that I chase
The harder you’re running
You don’t have to be
Impatient for something that ain’t coming
