freight train lyrics – barry michael

i hear the sound of a freight train rollin through my dreams
it’s full of yesterday’s baggage and chasing after me
no matter where i turn i can smell that engine burn

i keep a runnin from that freight train trying to escape my past
but the smoke clouds up my future and the freedom doesn’t last
somebody tell me how i can turn this thing around

cause there’s a chain around my neck and the weight of this worlds on my back
memories and regrets that set my mind off track
so many things i need to unload to give myself some peace
cause i know if i don’t that train’s gonna roll all over me

i’ve been stuck at this station in atlanta praying that the phone will ring
staring at the stranger in the mirror. i miss the man he used to be
i can’t even count the mistakes that brought me to this place

i’ve got to get my feet back on the ground
i can’t let my burdens drag me down
