How Long the Train’s Been Gone?
Tell me how long the train's been gone
So I can calculate the time
Figure out what went wrong
How I missed that railway line.
Tell me when it passed along the tracks
When all the boarding up was done
When the iron wheels spurned by the crowd
And rolled toward the distant sun.
Tell me how I can catch the next
and catch the time uncaught
And be where I'm suppose to be
And my misjudgment all forgot.
Tell how long I have to wait
How much more do I have to pay
Before I reach my destination
And recover my journey's way.
