lyrics

the Windsor corridor
speeding countryside
train tracks splitting the trees
in a blur of colour and light

my passenger pal
passed out against the window pane
your breath fogs the fields
i feel your heartbeat so faint

it's the end of an era
half a decade in the dark
and i'm not feeling the February cold
except in my old, old heart

when we reach our destination
i know we're not parting ways
i'm imagining all the train wrecks
all the possible delays

cold hearts
we couldn't stop ourselves from drifting apart
old hearts
youth was leaving us
leaving us is the dark

i see the silos
and your eyes on the window
the crisp snow, the train slows
i won't let you go

please speed up
and takes us to the end of the line
we've come this far together
our old hearts beat in time

cold hearts
we couldn't stop ourselves from drifting apart
old hearts
youth was leaving us
