Intro: Dsus2

Verse:
G    
No I'm not color blind 
                              Dsus2
I know the world is black and white
G    
Try to keep an open mind but...
                           Dsus2
I just can't sleep on this tonight

Chorus:
Gm                                       D   
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
                            E 
I can't take the speed it's moving in, I know I can't
    Gsus2    A7       Am7     A         Dsus2
But honest - ly won't someone stop this train

Verse:
G                                                           Dsus2
Don't know how else to say it, don't want to see my parents go
G    
One generation's length away
                             Dsus2
From fighting life out on my own

Chorus:
Gm                                       D   
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
                            E 
I can't take the speed it's moving in, I know I can't
    Gsus2    A7       Am7     A         Dsus2
But honest - ly won't someone stop this train

Interlude -x2-: G  Dsus2 

Verse:
G    
So scared of getting older
                       Dsus2
I'm only good at being young
G                                                                 Dsus2
So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun
G    
Had a talk with my old man
Gm7
Said help me understand
D                            E7
He said turn 68, you'll renegotiate

Chorus:
      Gm    
Don't stop this train
                              D   
Don't for a minute change the place you're in
                            E 
Don't think I couldn't ever understand, I tried my hand
      Gsus2    A7       Am7   A         Dsus2        
John, honest - ly we'll never stop this train

Bridge:
    G         A               G  
See once in a while when it's good
      Em           G
It'll feel like it should
            A         G  
And they're all still around
           Em             G
And you're still safe and sound
        A            G  
And you don't miss a thing
         Em              D           Am         Em 
'til you cry when you're driving a - way in the dark.

Chorus:
        Gm                                       D   
Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
                             E 
I can't take this speed it's moving in, I know I can't
      Gsus2    A7       Am7   A         Dsus2   
Cause now    I see I'll never stop this train
