Taking Different Paths

东 – 西

 

On the train

I met an old friend

Who used to be a farmer

 

He was sitting

In the buffet car

And he laughed when he saw me

In my old boots and shredded jeans

And I laughed to see him

In his new suit and tie

 

I told him

That I had a hard seat

And he told me

That he had a bed

 

As we sat there

 

Drinking talking

Passing the time together

 

East going West

West going East
