Frequent Electric Trains

Click on the discussion link at the bottom for the chat about this song and the lyrics

I’m gonna tie myself to that rocket
At the centre of the square
Timetable in my pocket
For God knows where
So long Mr Laird
Although you never really cared
You were the only one who heard my constant sobbing

Frequent electric trains
Took away my true love
Frequent electric trains
I hope you’re proud
Forever underground
Oh so profound
Curse your convenience
Frequent electric trains

Waiting for lift-off
A chance to reflect
Wrapped up in tin foil
With fuel to inject
Commencing countdown
I need a high for a low
Amidst this listed splendour
I watched her go

Frequent electric trains
Did me no favours
Frequent electric trains
Caused me to grieve
I thought we were fine
Then she saw your sign
You eased her departure
Frequent electric trains

Goodbye Georgian elegance
At least you tried
Farewell Great Uncle Allan
I’ll see you on the other side
Frequent electric trains
Frequent electric trains
Frequent electric trains
Frequent electric trains

Action stations, stand by (frequent electric trains)
Cross my legs and hope to fly (frequent electric trains)
(frequent electric trains)
Ice Cream for crow (frequent electric trains)
Thunderbirds are Go! (frequent electric trains)
(frequent electric trains)
