Lyrics

No I'm not colorblind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but
I just can't sleep on this tonight

Stop this train
I wanna get off
And go home again
I can't take the speed
It's movin' in
I know I can't
But honestly
Won't someone stop this train?

Don't know how else to say it
Don't wanna see my parents go
One generation's length away
From fighting life out on my own
Stop this train
I wanna get off

And go home again
I can't take the speed
It's movin' in
I know I can't
But honestly
Won't someone stop this train?

So scared of getting older
I'm only good at being young
So I play the numbers game
To find a way to say that

Life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said, "Help me understand"
He said, "Turn 68"
"You renegotiate"
"Don't stop this train"
"Don't for a minute change"
"The place you're in"
"And don't think I couldn't"
"Ever understand"
"I tried my hand"
"John, honestly"
"We'll never stop this train."

Once in a while
When its good
It'll feel like it should
And they're all still around

And you're still safe and sound
And you don't miss a thing
Till you cry when you're drivin' away in the dark
Singing
Stop this train
I wanna get off
And go home again
I can't take the speed
It's movin in
I know I can't
'Cause now I see
I'll never stop this train
