lyrics

All the astronauts and orbiters
That keep us honest from above,
They float without a care till they burn up in the air—
That’s nothing to compare us to, my love.

My love, oh my, oh my,
We might not fly across the sky
Like some silver aeroplane,
We’re a slow and steady train.

If I could make these wheels turn faster,
Honey, you know that I would,
To get us on our way, turn tomorrow to today,
But tomorrow’d never do us any good.

Cos my love, you know, you know,
Just gotta wait and watch it grow
Like a garden in the rain,
Like a slow and steady train,
Like a slow and steady train.

My love, oh my, oh my,
This world’ll wither up and die,
But you and I, we will sustain…

My love, you know, you know,
Just take is steady, take it slow,
Through the struggle and strain,
We’ll be a slow and steady train.
