Stray the Rail Lyrics
The phone rings and you’re asking can you crash
I say, “Of course”
All these years you’ve known my name
You’ve known my home is yours
We stay up, you pour a cup
Of something soothing
Now our soft words are no longer heard
But our mouths are still moving

As you kiss me again
I’ll do my best to pretend
That you’re not really with him

The day breaks and my chest aches
So I’ll call up a friend
There’s so much I have to say
And won’t ever tell them
Because for every night we spend
In the place I’ve come to miss
It’s followed by days we deny
That it ever did exist

This takes me back about three years
As you found guys, I found tears
Your laughter only hurt my ears

Take me back
To the place where heavy bolts of steel secure this track
And I swear that I won’t ever stray the rail again
Won’t take for granted anything that is handed to me
Because right now I’m shaking like the start of a train wreck
My eyes are shut I’m seeing the white that used to be your flesh
Now it’s the white of blank sheets in a lonely room,
Full of things and memories of days when I held you

So when you kiss me again
I’ll do my best to pretend
That you’re not really with him
No, you’re not really with him
And we can drink to the time
When I could once call you mine
But all good things have an end
So I’ll do my best to pretend
