He took a silver train
All the way to Maine
On the way to everything
Railroad wings

There's things you don't know you know
I thought anger told me what to do
With emptiness chasing me
On the border, I found you

Should have heard her sing
Railroad wings

This emptiness has followed me
Like a cold blue sky
And it has not been easy for you

There's things I'll never tell you
'Til the day I die
Things I done, I can never undo

Hiding everything
Railroad wings

All these years along
The lights are growing dim
I hear you sing your song
In the next room

And as far as I can tell
Most everything means nothing
Except some things
That mean everything

Railroad wings
Railroad wings
Railroad wings

Railroad wings
Railroad wings
Railroad wings
