Got to get off, the wrong train

Do you ever reach for something
and it’s not there?
Do you ever ask a question
and it’s left unanswered?
Do you ever get on the train
and get off at nowhere?

I do.

When i reach for you
you’re not here
When i ask you a question
you leave it hanging in the air
When i get on the train
i know, we’re going no where

I do.

Do you ever know that what you reach for
isn’t yours?
Do you ever know the answer to the question
you just asked?
Do you ever know that you’re on
the wrong train?

I do.

I wish what i reach for
was mine
I wish i had no reason
to ask questions
I wish this train would just let me off

Because I’ve got to get off
I’m on the wrong train
The wrong train going nowhere
Where ever i get off
I don’t care
it’s better than nowhere

Got to get off, the wrong train
