Strangers on a Train

Here is a song I wrote for Nick– another UPS driver who is also in a country/rock band. I came up with the idea back when I lived in Amsterdam and took the train to work every day.

You sit next to me
I tell you that’s OK
without speaking a word
nothing much to say

the smell of your perfume
as you sit there quietly
makes me wonder who you are
and if you wonder about me

I’m just a regular Joe
do you really want to know
the thoughts in my brain?
two more strangers on a train

our bodies share warmth
close as lovers lay
should I open up
or keep you at bay

time is winding down
as we race from A to B
should I act as expected
or challenge destiny?

I’m just a regular Joe (another Jane doe)
do you really want to know
the thoughts in my brain
two more strangers on a train
