The getaway (Lonesome train)

Ray Davies, released on Other People's Lives (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2006

.

Every time I hear that lonesome train roll down the track

Going away to unknown destinations

I believe there's someone out there making the great escape

Just moving on, suddenly gone and so unexpectedly

.

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon

Without a warning there's a thought, it just comes over you

And it's a shadow on a sidewalk, someone like you

In a blink of an eye, waving goodbye

It's time you made your getaway

.

In a suburb somewhere someone's quietly planning their getaway

Traveling light, in case they might get a change of heart

It's the bravest move they'll ever make, but they have to make the break

That's the risk that they take, so don't hesitate, then so unexpectedly

.

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon

Without a warning there's a thought, it just comes over you

And it's a shadow on the sidewalk, someone you knew

It's time you made your getaway

.

It might hit you on a sunny afternoon

Without a warning there's a thought, it just comes over you

And it's a shadow on the sidewalk, someone like you

It's time you made your getaway

.

You'll make the great escape

Get out that door before it's too late

Hear that lonesome train

The lonesome train

.
