stop this train
john mayer
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 wanna get off and go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in
I know I can but honestly
Won't someone stop this train?

Don't know how else to say it
Don't wanna see my parents go
One generation's length away
From fighting life out on my own

Stop this train
I wanna get off and go home again
I can't take the speed it's moving in
I know I can 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 sat down, ‽68, you'll renegotiate
Don't stop this train”

‽Don't for a minute chase the place you're in
And don't think I couldn't ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly, we'll never stop this train”

Once in a while when it's 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 'til you cry
When you're driving away in the dark

Singing, stop this train
I wanna get out and go home again
I can't take this speed it's moving in
I know I can 'cause now I see
I'll never stop this train
