lyrics

if this train derails
maybe they'll never know
how I held your head in my lap

newspapers won't comment on
the softness of your body
while you sleep

Maybe they won't talk about
how you'd drop your hand
from the top berth
and I held it, squeezed it
to let you know you aren't alone

But these actions send ripples
and if this train derails
our love will dissipate
and settle like a dust
into the trees and the sidewalks
and the fields
to be picked up, picked up, picked up.
