  1. The Station

From the recording The Station

I was watching tv one day, searching for inspiration. I desperately wanted to put words to a melody that I had running through my mind for days. I paused the tv and focused on the guitar... but... nothing was happening. I looked up at the tv and realized that it had been paused for 3 minutes, which is how the song started... but it was after seeing an old classic black and white movie about a couple that fall in love at a train station only to end up leaving each other behind, that the song wrote itself.
God Bless those old classics...
the sad thing is... I cannot remember the name of the movie.
Finally, Shan came home and helped put the finishing touches... the final edits, if you will.

Lyrics

THE STATION

It’s been 3 minutes since the last call
And your voice still echoes in my ear
The sound of your goodbye
And I can’t even seem to shed a tear

We knew we couldn’t be strong
We knew we couldn’t last that long
If only time stood still for a moment
And the train never left the station

We met on rainy Sunday
All departures were suddenly delayed
One table left in the café
Words were shared and time it felt like years

We knew we couldn’t be strong
We knew we couldn’t last that long
If only time stood still for a moment
And the train never left the station

Bridge:
All aboard for the next train
Grab your bags the sun has dried the rain
Take a seat at the window
He traces a heart and spells our my name

It’s been 10 minutes since the last call
And your voice still echoes in my ear
The sound of your goodbye
And here come the tears
