lyrics

Underground again

Waiting for the train

To take me to a place

That I don’t want to keep going to

Again and again

Again and again


I used to kick and scream

Saying what does it all mean

Yelling indignation

Spewing my frustration

‘til I ran out of steam

I ran out of steam


I want to live out in the country

I guess that someday I will go

I only tell you to remind me

There’s nicer things that I know


Come this time of year

It happens every time

Darkness comes and swallows up the daylight

And I start to lose my mind

I start to lose my mind


I want to learn to play piano

Someday I hope I find the time

I only tell you so that other things

Might not weigh upon my mind

How fast it seems to go

This train down here below

Whishhh and it goes past

Not a minute does it last

But then a year or two or three has gone

A year or three has gone


I want to live out in the country

I guess that someday I will go

I only tell you to remind me

There’s nicer things that I know
