​This Time Thru

This song is by DeGarmo and Key and appears on the album This Time Thru (1978).

Old man in a boxcar
Huddling up to a corner in the dark
Pain, shooting up a wrinkled heart
Stuffing news up his shirt to keep him warm

He's waiting on a train that's taking him nowhere
He's hoping that the grave is gonna set him free
Splitting up the pieces of a life that's near over
Desolation station for eternity

Isn't it a bloody shame
Look around and wonder
Who in the world's to blame

There no time to waste time this time through
Got not time for all the things we do
Everyone is running down the highway
No one looks around enough to see
They never really get to where they want to be
