lyrics

The train slowed down to a halt
In the snow, no one knows
The lights flicker on and off
Are we great wizards or ghosts?
Holding off yesterdays paper
As another day goes
Down the carriage the driver goes, offering nods and apologies
"I'm sorry we've gone so slow, but this isn't slow! We've just stopped in the snow" - He's trying to stretch the truth.
Putting on a performance
The day before Christmas
I lean over and catch your smile
As you look at the frosted window
Nothing to see but a hint of your own reflection
And I hope we stay a while
So I can think of a conversation that will sustain
And bring heat to this part of the carriage
We are stuck in the snow
We won't be able to go for much longer

In simple terms: we are just a train in the snow.
But what will this mean in time?
When we pick up speed
In simple terms: we are in a train stuck in the snow.
But what will this mean in time?
In simple terms
In simple terms
Clink Clank
Clink Clank
The train starts to pull away

I will miss the slither of the reflection
Frozen in the carriage
4/5ths of the way down before we forgot to get out
Missing

(Then a few shitty clicks as I don't know how to end the song)
