railroad wings lyrics – patty griffin

you took a silver train all the way to maine
on the way to everything
railroad wings

there’s things you don’t know you know
i thought anger told me what to do
with emptiness chasing me
on the border, i found you
you should’ve heard her sing
railroad wings

this emptiness has followed me like a cold blue sky
and it has not been easy for you
there’s things i’ll never tell you till the day i die
things i’ve done i can never undo
hiding everything
railroad wings

all these years along, the lights are growing dim
i hear you sing your song in the next room
and as far as i can tell, most everything means nothing
except some things that mean everything
railroad wings
