I Hope The Train Breaks Down.


I hope the train breaks down

Before the end of the line.

Then again, that’s a bit of a foolish thought

For sooner or later

We’ll get to the end,

In time.

 

I’m not in any hurry

To get to my destination.

I might even change trains at the next station

I’m not quite ready

For the end of the line,

This time.

 

So I’ll carry on with my trip

And I’m enjoying my travels

Plenty of stations to call at

While life unravels.

I’ll get to the end of the line,

Sometime.
