Midday Train

Writer

Chad Fischer and Anders Rundblad

Lyrics

The sun makes no apologies
It falls against the broken sea
The wind blows through me like a worn-down boxer
He looks his victor in the eye
To find what’s left of his own pride
The bell is ringing and he’s not the winner this time

And maybe someday you’ll come and save me
Just before the midday train comes crashing over to take my number
Well could it be, I just believe
And only have an optimistic afternoon

If I could change the way I see
A glass half-full of guarantees
I’ll have another from fate’s bartender
He looks his victim in the eye
Never thinks to ask him why
The bell is ringing and I’m not the winner this time

And maybe someday you’ll come and save me
Just before the midday train comes crashing over to take my number
Well could it be, I just believe
And only have an optimistic afternoon
