fool for a lonesome train lyrics – ben harper

it’s late and i can’t sleep
i’ve made promises that i can’t keep
cobblestones and broken bones, has a kingdom but he’s got no home
last night is still ringing in my head like that lonesome whistle in the rain

i’m a fool for a lonesome train
i’m a fool for a lonesome train

the lifetime we’ve left behind with strangers
promises and lies both have their dangers
i just can’t be wrong enough and i can’t hide for long enough
so far away, but i still feel your pain

i’m a fool for a lonesome train
i’m a fool for a lonesome train
i’d try to say goodbye but i never got your name
i’m a fool for a lonesome train

i’m a fool for a lonesome train
i’m your fool for a lonesome train
i know it sounds crazy but i’m painfully sane
i’m your fool for a lonesome, lonesome, lonesome train
