​Lay On The Rails

This song is by The New Amsterdams and appears on the album At The Foot Of My Rival (2007).

Shaking this quilted cocoon
Just us two
Underneath Middle-western moons
By the back roads

I've got a secret
I don't want to speak
The end came as such a relief
I'm so low

Take this from me, what it's worth
When you heard
I swore vengeance on Heaven and Earth
Till the end comes

And now if you're listening
And if you're at peace
Do you have wiser words for me?
I could use some

Lay on the rails
Withered and frail
Why bear this weight
When I'd escape

I'm sorry I can't say goodbye
You're just not ready
You're just not ready

I'm sure that I've been expelled
It's hard to tell
If the people you knew so well
Really knew you

A box of your letters
And tapes of your songs
How could they be so wrong?

This vested trust
Beyond us
So, show me then
I'm waiting

This vested trust
Beyond us
So, show me then
I'm waiting

This vested trust
Beyond us
So, show me then
I'm waiting

This vested trust
Beyond us
So, show me then
I'm waiting
