A train journey...a few hundred miles long, to visit a girlfriend. The anxiety that builds up on the way......

lyrics

Manchester to Exeter
Verse 1

Manchester to Exeter by train
Is it apparent that I am actually insane?

Am I transparent enough so you will see through me?
Perhaps even see the thoughts that I am thinking

The butterflies have come out to play form where they hide
There chasing me but unfortunately I cannot run away from what is inside.

It’s supposed to take four hours it feels like four days
An iPod only has so many songs that it can play

Chorus

I want to get out of this
How can I get out of this?
Hopefully the train man misses his
Stop

Verse 2

The stop is looming in and I get off
Still hoping you won’t ring

It’s not that I don’t want to hear your voice
It’s probably lovely but I can’t stand the noise

That I’ll make in response to your calls
‘cause if I stutter and stall you might not love me anymore

Chorus

I want to get out of this
How can I get out of this?
Hopefully the train man misses his
Stop
