This Train

This train is here for you to climb on.

But this train will soon be long gone.

This train can only take you if you dare.

Catch this train or go nowhere.


This train's already rolling from the gate.

This train is bound to leave you if you wait.

This train is the only chance you get.

Miss this train, and live in regret.


Maybe you think this train will wait for you,

Or it can always come again.

Too late you'll realize that isn't true.

And what then?


This train is what your life is all about.

This train is leaving with you or without.

This train may not always treat you kind.

But get on this train or get left behind.
