From the album Silver & Gold

Lyrics

I hear the train whistle, through the telephone tonight
It creeps in beneath your voice, on your side of the line
You tell me you’ve been smoking, drinking the hard stuff
How life is wearing on you, its all a little much

Darling, its alright
We all get down we all get blue
I’m holding you tonight
Close your eyes, I’m right beside you
Close your eyes, I’m right beside you

She pours another glass, says she’s feeling low
Then laugh’s and says “remember, when we layed out on the road?
And the snow was falling heavy, like a blanket it was warm”
And how that’s the only thing that makes her smile anymore

Darling, it’s alright
We all get down we all get blue
I’m holding you tonight
Close your eyes, I’m right beside you
Close your eyes, I’m right beside you

Now the telephone goes quiet
As she’s searching for the words
Says she’s having trouble, just dealing with the hurt
I ask her what she means
She says no one really knows
Last night she sat in silence with a bottle at her throat

It’s alright, we all get down we all get blue
I’m holding you tonight,
close your eyes and I’m right beside you

I hear the train whistle, through the telephone tonight
It creep’s in beneath your voice, on your side of the line
