Train to Toledo

lyrics

Took a train to Toledo on a lonely afternoon
The day it was a sunday, somewhere the end of June
Took a train to Toledo, Dressed up in a suit of lights
Cause no matter how hard i try i just cant get this Darkness
Out of my mind
Took a train to Toledo with a hustler and a clown
The first one took my shit out, and the other laughed about it all.

So take me home, take me home, open Windows take me home
Where the olive tree bent down to pick up its hat
Oh my god wont you take me home?
Oh my god wont you take me home?

Took a train to Toledo on a sunday afternoon
It took away a part of me
It took away a part of you
Our ghosts would stumble up and down the streets
Till they wound up getting lost
With a christ of Light inside a wall
Where horses fear to walk beyond

So take me home, take me home open Windows take me home
Where the olive tree bent down to pick up its hat
Oh my god wont you take me home?
Oh my god wont you take me home?

So i knocked upon the door of forgiveness
For the day it was closed
So i ended Eating marzipan
With my back against the wall
An old lady that was passing through with a Smile and a dead bouquet
Said “if you dont open it yourself baby, nobody will. So dont you forget”

Take me home, take me home, open Windows take me home
Where the olive tree bent down to pick up its hat
Oh my god wont you take me home?
Oh my god wont you take me home?
