It's funny how
I never really noticed
how lonely a train's whistle can sound
as it blows so long and lonely
so far off in the distance.
It's the saddest sound in the world
And as I lay here
as I do on many nights,
insomniac that I am,
I can't help but feel
drawn to that sound
to that loneliness & heartache
to that long whistle blow
that gives me chills.
