lyrics

The sky is grey and lonely
Only grackles sing
All the words you used to say
Didn't mean a thing

Weeds grow on the crossing
The bell no longer rings
Off in the distance
An engine rumbling

I leave my pennies on the track
Hoping you'd come back
It's not a wishing well
Full of truth and lies we tell
Love is not a game
I'm not keeping score
And you're a train that doesn't run through my heart no more

I should have known the story
The whistle told the tale
A man like you spends his life
Roving down the rail

At night the air is cooler
I don't miss you like I did
Somehow all these years
You kept your secrets hid

I leave my pennies on the track
Hoping you'd come back
It's not a wishing well
Full of truth and lies we tell
Love is not a game
I'm not keeping score
And you're a train that doesn't run through my heart no more

You can't stop the wheels from turning
And a heart's not yours to own
Loving you is what taught me
How to be alone

Santa Fe is calling
Echoes in the sand
Cleanse myself of you
Down by the Rio Grande

I left my pennies on the track
You're not coming back
It's not a wishing well
Full of truth and lies we tell
Love is not a game
I'm not keeping score
And you're a train that doesn't run through my heart no more
