Two Trains Running

The whole song is a metaphor. Do you stay? Go? There's always that pull - what's over there? Something better? Something terrible? What are you going to decide?

 

There are two trains running
Runnin’ down the track
One pulled into the station
The other ain’t coming back

There are two birds flying
Flying from the storm
One of them rides the lightning
The other is safe and warm

Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
It’s do or die

Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on
We’re going to the other side

There are two roads winding
Winding through the mist
One will bring you safety
The other you can’t resist

Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
It’s do or die

Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on (we’re at the crossroads)
Come on
We’re going to the other side

There are two doors waiting
For you to try
One leads to the bedroom
The other leads to goodbye

Now there's one train running
Running,  down the track
Will it ever pull into the station
Can it ever really come on back
