Liner Notes: 

I wanted a song about working things out in the course of a train journey.

Lyrics: 

Takes a train journey

You got me so mad, that was you
I could feel the red glow burning in my face
You didn't seem to care at all, about how I'd react to your news
You just decided today
but that's fine anyway
You give me your truth and I'll get away

So I left home, at a speed
With dark frustration fuelling my walk
I wanted to find quiet solace, with disinterested strangers I meet
I didn't want to talk
Cause chat is pointless like chalk
makes life hard, like a pair of forks

So I bought my train ticket, at the station, for a life saving escape
I wanted to work out in my mind
I had so much to calculate
I delved into serious details rolling about in my head, like balls in a pinball, firing on red
I couldn't get my thoughts out and clinical and clear
I had no choice, I had to leave, get up and disappear

Down on those rails. it helps to engage and disentangle the pain

Takes a train journey for me, so I can work through the issues
Takes a train journey for me, cause it gives me a push to get through
Takes a train journey for me, to take a step back, from the crazy days
Takes a train journey for me, to understand the full extent of the impact I face

I sit on the seat, blissfully ignored
Grandma with her knitting, while granddad snores
Oblivious to me and my problems, that I try to resolve
Green fields flashing by and buildings ancient and old.

Takes a train journey for me, so I can work through the issues
Takes a train journey for me, cause it gives me a push to get through
Takes a train journey for me, to take a step back, from the crazy days
Takes a train journey for me, to understand the full extent of the impact I face

I reach for a biscuit, hungers kicked in
Mum with her children greet me with a grin
They have it sorted with love unconditional
I'm left relying on a substitute, more medicinal

Takes a train journey for me, so I can work through the issues
Takes a train journey for me, cause it gives me a push to get through
Takes a train journey for me, to take a step back, from the crazy days
Takes a train journey for me, to understand the full extent of the impact I face

I finish my round trip, no choice but back home
Take a train journey to know where you want to go



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Great idea. I like how it mixes the issues with everyday things! I have about 3 train songs started but strangely none have got out of the station.

Wonderful cathartic feeling Journey - the idea of running these thoughts through your head with the rhythm of a train on the rails is really appealing. Well done!

This is very interesting and I love that it's a round trip journey.
