Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train oh no
Roll in to her life
Oh the graffiti on the train oh

Stepped outside he left his lover sleeping
Rain falls he's drowning in his secret
Wet streets are quiet as a church hall
Last house where children kick the football

Cross roads his heart is beating faster
Getting close to asking her the question
"Marry me" he wants to paint the words on
The night train he's hiding with his spray cans
And that is going to ride
When the paint is done and dried oh come on

Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh the graffiti on the train
Oh she'll never be the same oh no
Roll in to her life
Oh the graffiti on the train oh

Day breaks as lovely as she wakes up
Sips her cup and dusts her face in make up
Black phone she hears the people whisper
Someone died themselves train has slipped up

Train comes the coach she's always used to
The doors read a "Marry me I love you"
Heart stops ecstatic and suspicious
She makes the call but he don't pick the phone up
The train sped down the line
It was last train he would ride oh no

Oh graffiti on the train
Oh graffiti on the train
Oh graffiti on the train
Oh she will never be the same
Oh god rolling back into her life
Oh graffiti on the train oh

So is life................. but you take the time to enjoy what you can make of it. It's a good song.

Reminds me of some distant memory from the late 80's, early 90's, and it is so hauntingly familiar, it almost brings me to tears...

It is a good song, if it can do that to one... 


Nice guitar solo in this one {#Music}

the closest I could make out was "hemophilia on a train" so at least yours made some kind of sense.

 
Stop gushing about this song!
More Stereophonics please! {#Dance}

whow!
If the graffiti is from a Sharpie, all you need is some Purell and some tissues to remove it. Right now, I would like to take some Purell to this whiny song.

Thought he was singing "There's a baby on the train."  Like one of those stickers you put in the back window of your car, "Baby on board."  Couldn't figure out why this was worth singing about.  Of course, knowing what the actual lyrics were didn't help.  This song is annoyingly repetitive.

 
Before I came here to see the title and lyrics, the closest I could make out was "hemophilia on a train" so at least yours made some kind of sense.
Husbot loves this one
Yeah, kind of a mix of Henley and Bryan Adams.

I quite like this and the Stereophonics, but is anyone else hearing Don Henley's voice here?

The guitars at the end remind me a bit of The Boys of Summer in a subtle way.
8->9 excellent stuff!!

Nice piece. So nice indeed, that it may be too short. 

 
Evocative and very thoughtful. The string section makes it special. 
Yes!! Please play some other welsh bands. Try 'the gentle good' if you like folk. The track 'the fisherman' is amazing
Fabulous.  Instant 9.

Will never master your language enough to be able to say something like that. But, it's this exactly.

Purchased this week after hearing this track and you are correct. Very solid.

Maybe it's because I recently watched "Snowpiercer", but I swear it sounds like he's singing "There's a city on a train"
Love the whole album.
"Maybe Tomorrow" is one of my favorite songs by any band. However, I can't seem to get into any of their other music. I haz sad. {#Sad}
I don't know why but that's a 9. Don't ask me why because I don't know why this likes me
Epic!
The choice of chorus lyrics doesn't have the same gravitas as the music does.
that's a most excellent straight eight right there.. {#Music}
First!  Like it so far
