12. FAIR HAIRED TRAVELLER

 

On a train ride from some place bad

To some place little better

in-between my youth and manhood

was the place I met her

she was just a skinny brown-eyes girl

A hunger for tomorrow

and I was then obese by pain

I had all thta I could swallow.

 

Oh fair haired travelling girl

Keep on travelling on

Oh fair haired travelling on

It's just the seat that you have is wrong

 

Her eyes were packing passed regrets

in her lips there was redemption

and she mistook my coat for love

as she wore it for affection

as she took the seat beside me

I inhaled all of her laughter

and she forgot there is a past

while i forgot there is an after.

 

Oh fair haired travelling girl

Keep on travelling on

Oh fair haired travelling on

It's just the seat that you have is wrong

 

On a train ride from some place gone

to some place almost certain

in-between my flesh and bone

was the place I met her

and wrapped up in my coat of shame

she laide there sleeping tightly

and as the train pulled to another stop

I knew that she'd go on without me.

 

Oh fair haired travelling girl

Keep on travelling on

Oh fair haired travelling on

It's just the seat that you have is wrong
