TROUBLE AND LOVE: ANOTHER TRAIN

http://youtu.be/iGL1HG1qq7c Another Train (Mary Gauthier/Ben Glover)

Another Train, the final song on Trouble and Love, is co-written by Ben Glover. It is a song of hope, of faith, of affirmation of life’s renewals and rebirths. On the other side of betrayal, on the other side of hurt, on the other side of sorrow, sits the train station. And headed for the station, is another train. May we all find our way there somehow, and catch that next train.

And so it is. Another record of songs I’ve written in an attempt to make sense of a few of life’s mysteries, an attempt to capture lightening in a bottle. This time, though, it was a “we” project from the very first song written. This record was the most collaborative of my career, every single song a co-write: each track recorded live-to-tape by my collaborator and friend the brilliant engineer/producer Patrick Granado, who selected the band and the songs and brought the best players in Nashville to the recording studio to cut them. The musicians played and sang their beautiful hearts out.

This record has my name on it, and I will be given the credit or blame for its contents…but truly, it’s the work of a collective, a group of highly talented and creative people that I deeply respect, all friends, all masters of their art, all at the height of their powers. It was a thrill to work with each and every one of them, and I encourage listeners to search out these names on the credits of this CD.

LYRICS: ANOTHER TRAIN

Got me an apartment on the East Side 1411 13th Street I walk on the tracks by the Cumberland River Over the bridge past lovers leap

I’m holding on Through the pain Through the pain Waiting on another train Another train

Tore a hole in the pocket Of the jacket you bought me In that thrift store in Camden Town Behind the station You wrapped my arms around me You built me up, and tore me down

I’m holding on Through the pain Through the pain Waiting on another train Another train

December sunset I can see my breath Disappear into the cold winter night Bums gathering driftwood Down by the river Whistle blows a lonesome cry

I’m holding on Through the pain Through the pain Waiting on another train Another train
