Red shift echo

I’m on the last train
Heading anywhere but here
Painful memories steep in the bones of this place
Seeking new horizons
New people to call home
Trailing behind
The ghosts who can’t let me sleep
Dawn’s on the horizon
And I’m not there yet
Small towns too quiet
Without your voice to take up the silence
Running away
Instead of running to
Not sure when I’ll get there
But I know I’ll miss you.
