about

This song was inspired by a tweet, part of it being the title of this song. You know that feeling of liking someone but feeling that you're not good enough for them? That's why "she goes like a bullet train."

lyrics

I've been stuck in the mud
For what seems like an eternity
I've been stuck in the crud
These legs don't want to get free

I keep twisting and digging and clawing away
But the mud just wants me to stay
The more I fight, the more I lose
I wish I could get rid of these shoes

I wish I could stop the world
And I wish that I was strong
And I always wish I could get the girl
But the world keeps moving on

She's walking on the path
I yell but she doesn't hear
Maybe I'm too far away
Maybe she's ignoring me
She seems to be walking quite quickly

She goes like a bullet train
Ignoring the hail and rain
I fall flat on my face, get put in my place
Caught in this losing race

A race that is never done
A race that just can't be won
And the world keeps rolling on
And the world keeps moving on
