Paul Langlois – Waiting on My Train

There’s an empty sound around,
as I put on my boots and go outside.
There’s an itch there but I can’t scratch it.
And walking through the park,
a couple guys staring me down.
What they’re looking for they ain’t gonna find it.
I’m crossing the boulevard,
then sliding down a side street,
I know it well but I don’t like it.
There goes a little kid,
I know that look he’s got.
He’s going home not knowing why he did what he did.

Me, I’m waiting on my train,
to come around, and pick me up again.
That train’s gonna show me,
the middle’s not the end.

I’m taking the long way round,
and passing by my old school.
It’s looking old and rained on.
Just there ‘cross the street,
there’s a girl I used to know,
but now we’re both looking the other way.

And me, I’m waiting on my train,
to come around, and pick me up again.
That train’s gonna show me,
the middle’s not the end.

I’m spitting in the shadows,
And weeding out the moon.

While these street lights blow their light on me,
I’m kickin’ time.
And I gotta go, I can help but see,
I’ve been wasting mine.
Retirement

I didn’t know that you were leaving us today.
I guess I thought that you would always choose to stay.
I know you know that I will miss you being here.
I know you’ve thought about this change in your veneer.

I sometimes want to freeze the moments in our time,
and activate the breeze and blow it in the pines.

I am leaving but you can’t deny the way.
I’ve thought it through and it’s got to be today.
The summer’s gone and I have looked around.
The need for me is not what I have found.

Of evergreen and lasting winter ‘till it thaws,
to take the chance to know what’s hidden in the claws.

Life’s just a moment and it’s not where you have been, it’s not where you’re gonna go,
it’s in the room you’re in.

I didn’t know that you were leaving us today,
I guess I thought that you would always choose to stay.
I know you know that I will miss you being here,
I know you’ve thought about this change in your career.

Of evergreen and lasting winter ‘till it thaws,
to take the chance to know what’s hidden in the claws.

I thank you for this time and it wont go away,
the winter’s calling me, and baby I can’t stay.
