chug chug, she pulled away

as the train chugs in
for the very last time
we think of the possibilities
the journey that lay ahead
the route that brought me here
everything seems bitter
everything seemingly sweet

and the sky
it brews up shades of orange
and red and purple
and blue
just for me
just for you

i hear the whistle blow
i hear a man bellow
"where are you leaving to?"

the road is open
the horizon is fogged up
romantic almost

you see what you want to believe
you see the world come together
life is infused into the light

and as the train chugs in
before i get on. i want to say.
you will not be forgotten.
you are beautiful. you are courageous.
there is a reason i hold you dear
there is a reason i believe in you.

chug chug
catch my train
don't smoke the dream

no adieus.
just a salud!
