And the people by the windows playing cards and reading papers Looked as far away to us as next summer's school vacation But now kids at night break window lights And the sound of trains only remains In the memory of the ones like me Who have turned their backs on the splintered cracks In the walls that stand on the railroad land Where we used to play and then run away from the depot man
