Stop This Train is the seventh track on John Mayers 2006 album "Continuum". Arguably one of his most emotionally raw songs, Mayer sings of his fears of impending mortality, growing older, and the never stopping march of life, comparing life to being on a train that you cannot stop. In the end, he finally accepts that he'll never be able to stop the train, and has to move on.
It's notable that the guitar throughout the song is made to resemble the sound that a train makes, giving the listener the feeling that they too are on the moving train.
As of August 2019, the song has ~51,000,000 plays on the streaming service Spotify.
