lyrics

Gordie Lachance



He looked them in the eyes and he knew that they were gone

Just a gang of restless hearts and the beat of one good song

The train tracks ran through the middle of the earth

Chase them to the river’s edge just to see what they were worth

A few messages a day to see if they were still alive

Counting down the minutes to the bell that sounded right on time

And he said to his friend man I’m walking out the door

I keep spinning my wheels I know that we were meant for more



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along



We’re burning through the scenes like a film we used to know

And we’re living in a dream hoping we don’t have to go

No I won’t stop now dodging trains that come our way

The devil in the night will lead us to a brand new day



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along



And I’m wondering where this all will lead

If I’m fighting this alone

Then I turn and see these kids stand right by me

And I know we’re walking down that same old road

Not letting go



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along

Oh I’m too deep into this so I’m long gone

Let’s move along
