(10) Before my train comes
« on: January 30, 2024, 11:52:34 AM »
Before My Train Comes   4:04

That's my train coming, I can hear the whistle blow
There's something you should know
Before I leave you
And I hang up my guns
Before my train comes

Good times together can last you for a while
And a memory take you back in style
Some will fade away forever, but I know some will not
Yours all mean a lot

Well, a cloud can come from nowhere, out of a blue sky
Sad to be leaving for somewhere without a goodbye
That's my train coming, I can hear the whistle blow
There's something you should know

Well, a cloud can come from nowhere, out of a blue sky
Sad to be leaving for somewhere without a goodbye
That's my train coming, I can hear the whistle blow
There's something you should know

Before I leave you
And I hang up my guns
Before my train comes
Before my train comes

Adds much needed pace to the album at this point.  Reminds me of Silver Eagle.

Do you think this is a character that knows is going to die (his train is coming) and has something to say before (he can listen the whistle blow...)?

Definitely plausible, in the same vain as Camerado.
 The mood & lyrics point that way.

Well a cloud could come from nowhere
out of the blue sky
sad to believe that
that you'd go somewhere
without a goodbye
that's my train comin
I can hear the whistle go
there's somethin you should know

My 2nd favourite today.

I was thinking that it might be a tribute to his studio manager, Dave Stewart, that died from covid, specially this part:

Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

Very nice play out on this one at the end. Very nice song in general.

Lots of guitar "quotes" from Silver Eagle here and there throughout.  Even the background synths are the same.  Fortunately I like that one and the drumming on this raises it a little tempo-wise.

Yes Robson and jbaent the more I play this the deeper my sense of it being about a fairly
recent personal loss!
Greg and Mark again sublime in trading georgeous licks to really enhance the emotions.

Beautiful track. It's a shame the outro doesn't go for a bit longer

Yes, he should’ve added 20 or more precious seconds to that outro. Fantastic song.
