Long Train is a song that is going to be on the upcoming Matadors record called ' Say You Love Satan'. This song is likely one of the saddest ever recorded so TRY not to kill yourself while listening to it.

It's about two people and a love that just cant seem to get its shit together. If youve been there, the lyrics will hit home like a motherfucker, if you have not... it wont.


There is a long train between your side and my side of town
and every time i try to see you, that train is coming down the line.

There is a dark road that leads to your door and that road is long over grown.
Sometimes I want to cut my way through and hold you for my own.

There is a mean old dog that sits right on your step with long white teeth and blood on his breath.
Sometimes I want to kill that dog and throw him on under that train.

Someday youre gonna miss me and youre gonna change your mind and on that day I'll be on that train rolling by. So come on out on your step and wave to this fool cryin'
