Can't Escape From You

Oh, the evening train is rolling
All along the homeward way
All my hopes are over the horizon
All my dreams have gone away

The hillside darkly shaded
Stars falling from above
All the joys of earth have faded
The night's untouched, my love

I'll be here 'til tomorrow
Beneath a shroud of gray
I pretend I'm free of sorrow
My heart is miles away

The dead bells are ringing
My train is overdue
To your memory I'm clinging
I can't escape from you

Well, I hear the sound of thunder
Roaring loud and long
Sometimes you got to wonder
God knows I've done no wrong

How you've wasted all your power
You threw out the Christmas pie
Now you're withering like a flower
You'll play the fool and die

I'm neither sad nor sorry
I'm all dressed up in black
I fought for fame and glory
And you tried to break my back

In the far off sweet forever
The sunshine peeking through
We should've walked together
I can't escape from you

I cannot grasp the shadows
That gather near the door
Rainfall around my window
I wish I'd seen you more

The path is ever winding
The stars they never age
The morning light is blinding
All the world's a stage

Should be the time of gladness
Happy faces everywhere
The mystery of madness
Is propagating in the air

I don't like the city
Not like some folks do
Isn't it a pity
I can't escape from you?

We ploughed the fields of heaven
Right down to the end
I hope I can be forgiven
If any words of mine offend

All our days were splendid
They were simple, they were plain
It never should have ended
I should've kissed you in the rain

I've been thinking things all over
All the moments full of grace
The primrose and the clover
Your ever-changing face

Can't help looking at you
You made love with god knows who
Never found a gal to match you
I can't escape from you
