Train in Vain
You say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don't understand
You said you loved me, that's a fact
Then you left me, said you felt trapped
Well, some things you can't explain away
And the heartache's with me 'til this day

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

All the times when we were close
I'll remember those days the most
I seen all my walls come tumblin' down
I can't be happy without you around
So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there's only one thing I can say

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?
Did you stand be me?
No, not at all

Now I got a job, but it don't pay
I need new clothes, I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
Without your love, I won't see it through
But you don't understand my point of view
I suppose there's nothing I can do

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Well, did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand be me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
Go go go go go go go go go go go go
