lyrics

I’m hitchin’ on a Freeride Train, Zoomin about as fast as I can go
I’m headin’ in the opposite direction from safety and love and my perfect idea of home
You know this was no choice of mine, my feet and my head have never been all that close
Will you think of me when the morning has come and you’re all alone, all alone?

It’s drizzling through this boxcar door, my smokin hand is stirring up a cloud
I’ll peer right in and see a future, now and then are both filled up with doubt
Wish that you had given me reason, something tangible to glue me down
It’s too late to change your mind, this Freeride Train’s my only lover now

When sun comes up and train slows down I’ll close my eyes and open them again
Breathe the smell of summer rain, this sticky air is welcome as my first
No more heartbreak, no more pain, my soul is new my mind forgetting you
The Freeride Train has brought me home, I’ll never be alone, never be alone, never be alone.
