Downtown Train
Outside another yellow moon
Has punched a hole in the night-time mist
I climb through the window and down to the street
Yeah, I'm shining like a new dime
The downtown trains are full
Full of all them Brooklyn girls
They try so hard
To break out of their little worlds

You wave your hand, and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that'll ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one
You chose to be your only one
Oh, baby, can't you hear me now?
Can't you hear me now?

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train?
Every night, every night is just the same
On a downtown train

I know your window, and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorways
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four-way
Watch them as they fall
They're all having them heart attacks
They stay at the carnival
But they'll never win you back

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train?
'Cause all my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain
Fallin' on a downtown train

Whoa, will I see you tonight
On a downtown train?
'Cause every night, every night is just the same
You leave me lonely

Will I see you tonight
On a downtown train?
'Cause all my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain
Fallin' on a downtown train
On a downtown train
