lyrics

He sees you off and on the train
A trio of vagabonds lost in a daze
where are you headed in the god awful place
always so frantic with arrhythmic pace

Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star

His livelihood protected in his matching suitcase
everything he lives for in a small place
travelling the country to sell what he sells
given the years he might see you again

Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star

Amid foreign surrounding you wander the earth
venomous disclosures buried in dirt
you argue and sulk, then fight amongst brothers
searching for the long lost sight of your mother

Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star

Something isn't at your father’s wake
Someone hiding on an extended break
from family ties avoidance lies
healing the heart requires compromise

A mysterious train hold more than a secret
you don't even believe it
on your way forward to something you left behind
ready or not, it is always on time

Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star


Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
Missing that train
You keep missing that train
You can't always be the star
