Can’t Escape from You

Oh the evening train is rolling
All along the homeward way
All my hopes are over the horizon
All my dreams have gone astray
The hillside darkly shaded
Stars fall from above
All the joys of earth have faded
The nights untouched by love
I’ll be here ’til tomorrow
Beneath a shroud of gray
I’ll pretend I’m free from sorrow
My heart is miles away
The dead bells are ringing
My train is overdue
To your memory I’m clinging
I can’t escape from you

Well I hear the sound of thunder
Roaring loud and long
Sometimes you’ve got to wonder
God knows I’ve done no wrong
You’ve wasted all your power
You threw out the Christmas pie
You’ll wither like a flower
And play the fool and die
I’m neither sad nor sorry
I’m all dressed up in black
I fought for fame and glory
You tried to break my back
In the far off sweet forever
The sunshine breaking through
We should have walked together
I can’t escape from you

I cannot grasp the shadows
That gather near the door
Rain fall ’round my window
I wish I’d seen you more
The path is ever winding
The stars they never age
The morning light is blinding
All the world’s a stage
Should be the time of gladness
Happy faces everywhere
But the mystery of madness
Is propagating in the air
I don’t like the city
Not like some folks do
Isn’t it a pity
I can’t escape from you?
