The Wallflowers - I Hear The Ocean (When I Wanna Hear Trains) Lyrics


Doesn’t matter if it’s real or not
It isn’t wise to make it stop
It’s used to getting only what it wants
And we’re in no shape to be fought
It has no mercy with wings it’s got
A shadow longer than you could’ve thought
It’s not in any mood to talk
Has me cornered and it has you caught
Out walking the city in your boots in the rain
I’ve been here sitting down looking out into the waves
I’m indifferent now to any other pain
I hear the ocean when I wanna to hear trains

I hear the ocean when I wanna hear trains
I wanna change horses I wanna switch lanes

In the morning a fool is quick to pretend
This night too does not begin
With a shot glass coming up again
Elbows down to the bitter end
You’re in the bar light with your smoke rings
And a stranger who’s leaning in
I’m hoping to blackout and land
Long before you’re more than friends
I’m being handled like a pistol and a boy who plays
While lost in the saddle two thousand miles out of range
I’m not listening but it’s calling out my name
I hear the ocean when I want to hear trains

I hear the ocean when I wanna hear trains
I wanna change horses I wanna switch lanes

I’m in the desert now with this flag being raised
This is surrender and these are the cruelest of days
I’m not working with a net below I pay
I hear the ocean when I want to hear trains

I hear the ocean when I wanna hear trains
I hear the ocean when I wanna hear trains
