Sometimes, life seems like not what you bargained for,
Sometimes life is just a long horrid road,
Sometimes the road cannot be seen in the winter fog,
Because the mind is sleeping like a log.
The summer came and the summer left,
And now the winter is here again.
Cold winds blowing my mind hither,
Descending snow throwing me thither.
But there is a midnight train on an icy track.
The midnight train waits to take me anywhere I want to,
But sometimes I just don’t know where to go.
Because sometimes the mind is just a snare of delusion.
Sometimes life wants me to forgive and forget,
Sometimes it takes away a friend.
Many faces have boarded the midnight train,
But not one parting face was a friend.
Sometimes our mind tricks us with grand delusion,
So we wonder when the foggy road will end.
And when the day’s work is over,
We fade like a softly setting sun.
Sometimes life is just the loner.
Waiting alone in the freezing mid-winter wind,
Waiting to find a friend,
With a ticket for the midnight train.
