The Day We Caught the Train
Ocean Colour Scene Lyrics


I never saw it as the start
It's more a change of heart
Rapping on the windows, whistling down the chimney pot
Blowing off the dust in the room where I forgot
I laid my plans in solid rock

Stepping through the door like a troubadour
Whiling just an hour away
Looking at the trees on the roadside
Feeling it's a holiday
You and I should ride the coast
And wind up in our favorite coats just miles away
Roll a number, write another song
Like Jimmy heard the day he caught the train

Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la

He sipped another rum and coke
And told a dirty joke
Walking like Groucho, sucking on a number ten
Rolling on the floor with the cigarette burns walked in
I'll miss the crush when I'm home again

Stepping through the door with the night in store
Whiling just an hour away
Step into the sky in the star bright
Feeling it's a brighter day
You and I should ride the coast
And wind up in our favorite coats just miles away
Roll a number, write another song
Like Jimmy heard the day he caught the train

Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la

You and I should ride the tracks
And find ourselves just wading through tomorrow
And you and I, when we're coming down
We're only getting back
And you know I feel no sorrow
(We've got the whole wide world)

Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la

When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you want days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you want days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you need days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you want days like these, like these?

Oh-oh la-la
Oh-oh la-la

Rapping on the windows, whistling down the chimney pot
Blowing off the dust in the room where I forgot
I laid my plansin solid rock
Stepping through the door like a troubadour
Whiling just an hour away
Looking at the trees on the roadside
Feeling it's a holiday
You and I should ride the coast
And wind up in our favourite coats just miles away

Like Jimmy heard the day he caught the train
Oh oh la la

Don't you want days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you want days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you need days like these?
When you find that things are getting wild
Don't you want days like these?
Oh oh la la

I'm fifteen and discovered this song a few months ago during quarantine... music used to be really good back in the 90s, I think these kind of music has been my best pandemic discovery.

@francisdapro agreed, issue is music these days is too electronic and poppy and soulless I know indies slightly poppy but todays pop takes the piss

francisdapro

@IlIlIlI IlIlIlI I see your point. I wast gonna criticise your opinion at all! Was just merely curious! Hopefully in years to come some bands start to make some indie/alt music that people enjoy!

IlIlIlI IlIlIlI

@francisdapro good question, Iโ€™d say just because that was the last huge year/ prime for bands like Artic Monkeys and Bastille maybe even 2013 was the last elite year for indie/Alternative rockโ€ฆ just my opinion though.

francisdapro

@IlIlIlI IlIlIlI why specifically 2014?

It reminds me of sunshine, Euro 96, Oasis, TFI Friday and happy times when everything in Britain seemed to make sense and people were positive, open and happy. They were the best times of my life โœŒ๐Ÿผ
