Train In The Distance

Paul Simon

Paul Simon's Concert in the Park, August 15, 1991

She was beutiful as southern skies
the night he met her
she was married to someone
he was doggidly determined
that he would get her
he was old he was young
from time to time he would tip his heart
but each time she withdrew


everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance
everybody thinks its true

well eventually the boy the girl get married
sure enough they have a son
and although both were occupied with the child she carried
dissagreements had begun
and in a while it just fell apart
it wasn't hard to do


two dissapointed believers
two people playing the game
negotiations and love songs
are often mistaken for one and the same

well the man and the woman
they remain in contact
let us say its for the child
with dissagrements about the meaning of a marriage contract
conversations hard and wild
from time to time he would make her laugh
she'd cook him a meal or two


what is the point of this story?
what information pertains?
the thought that life could be better
is woven indelibly into our hearts and our brains
like a train in the distance
