Elton John - This train don’t stop there anymore
Tekst: Bernie Taupin / Muziek: Elton John
(2001)






You may not believe it
But I don’t believe in miracles anymore
And when I think about it
I don’t believe I ever did for sure
All the things I’ve said in songs
All the purple prose you bought from me
Realties just black and white
The sentimental things I’d write
Never meant that much to me



I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime



But this train don’t stop
This train don’t stop
This train don’t stop there anymore



You don’t need to hear it
But I’m dried up and sick to death of love
And if you need to know it
I never really understood that stuff
All the stars and bleeding hearts
All the tears that welled up in my eyes
Never meant a thing to me
Read them as they say and weep
I’ve never felt enough to cry



I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime



But this train don’t stop
This train don’t stop
This train don’t stop there anymore



When I say that I don’t care
It really means my engines breaking down
The chisel chips my heart again
The granite cracks beneath my skin
I crumble into pieces on the ground



I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west
Picking up my pain from door to door
Riding on the Storyline
Furnace burning overtime



But this train don’t stop
This train don’t stop
This train don’t stop there anymore



But this train don’t stop
This train don’t stop
This train don’t stop there anymore



O yeah
