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.

[Chorus]
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 my life out on my own.

[Chorus]
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
its movin in
I know I can't.
Cause now I see,
I'll never stop this train."
