"Stop this train"

"No, I'm not color blind, I know the world is black and white.
Try to keep an open mind but I just can't sleep on this tonight.
Stop this train, I want to get off and go home again.
I can't take the speed its moving in.
I know I can't but honestly won't someone stop this train.

Don't know how else to say it, don't want to see my parents go.
One generation's length away from fighting life out on my own.
Stop this train, I want to get off and go home again.
I can't take the speed its moving in.
I know I can't, but honestly won't someone stop this train.

So scared of getting older. I'm only good at being young.
So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun.
Had a talk with my old man, said help me understand.
He said turn sixty-eight, you'll renegotiate.
Don't stop this train, don't for a minute change the place you're in.
Don't think I couldn't ever understand. I tried my hand.
John, honestly we'll never stop this train.

See, once in a while when its good, it'll feel like it should
And they're all still around and you're still safe and sound.
And you don't miss a thing until you're driving away in the dark.

Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again.
I can't take the speed its moving in.
I know I can't cause now I see I'll never stop this train."
