A Train That Does Not Derail – Written Sunday 15th August 2010 (Aged 35)

A Train That Does Not Derail

i just want to find
a train that does not derail
find myself an ocean
and a boat i can actually sail
i would like to find
a christmas cracker
where the joke does not fall flat
i would like to find
a destination worth returning to
tell me,
that we are just two people
on a pylon
waiting for the electricity to flow
i just want to find
a car that really goes
where the distance melts
and the conversation easily flows
the devil is in the detail
find me a train
that never truly derails
