Train to Albion


I never cared for kings and queens

You swear unswerving loyalty, you don’t know what it means

But I'll be here - long as you need

You will be my fealty - I will be your team


Take my hand

Climb inside

We’ll take a train to Albion and see how the nation lies

Eat Lebanese and sip a good Bordeaux

We’ll take a train and watch the line weeds grow


I never strayed so far from shore

We search for treasure islands but what do we want them for?

Let's just drift till the doldrums heal

You will be my steering gear and I will be your keel


So I will cling to you

The balance and the weight

We’ll walk along the Greenaway

And watch the stars rotate
