Just Like This Train - Joni Mitchell

    I'm always running behind the time
    Just like this train
    Shaking into town
    With the brakes complaining

    I used to count lovers like railroad cars
    I counted them on my side
    Lately I don't count on nothing
    I just let things slide

    The station master's shuffling cards
    Boxcars are banging in the yards
    Jealous Iovin'Il make you crazy
    If you can't find your goodness
    'Cause you lost your heart

    I went looking for a cause
    Or a strong cat without claws
    Or any reason to resume
    And I found this empty seat
    In this crowded waiting room
    (Everybody waiting)
    Old man sleeping on his bags
    Women with that teased up kind of hair
    Kids with the jitters in their legs
    And those wide, wide open stares
    And the kids got cokes and chocolate bars
    There's a thin man smoking a fat cigar
    Jealous lovin'lI make you crazy
    If you can't find your goodness
    'Cause you've lost your heart

    What are you going to do now
    You've got no one
    To give your love too...

    Well I've got this berth and this roll down blind
    I've got this fold up sink
    And these rocks and these cactus going by
    And a bottle of German wine to drink
    Settle down into the clickety cIack
    With the clouds and the stars to read
    Dreaming of the pleasure I'm going to have
    Watching your hairline recede
    (My vain darling)
    Watching your hair and clouds and stars
    I'm rocking away in a sleeping car
    This jealous lovin's bound to make me
    I can't find my goodness
    I lost my heart
    Oh sour grapes
    Because I lost my heart
