Breakdown
Jack Johnson Lyrics


I hope this old train breaks down
Then I could take a walk around
See what there is to see
Time is just a melody

With all the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet
Can take them
I just roam through town
And though my window's got a view
Where the frame I'm looking through
Seems to have no concern for me now
So for now

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

Well, this engine screams out loud
Sayin' the beat gonna crawl westbound
So I don't even make a sound
'Cause it's gonna sting me when I leave this town

And all the people in the street that I'll never get to meet
These tracks don't bend somehow
And I got no time that I got to get to
Where I don't need to be, so I

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I wanna break on down
But I can't stop now
Let me break on down

But you can't stop nothing
If you got no control
Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept in, you know

You don't know nothing
But you don't need to know
The wisdom's in the trees
Not the glass windows

You can't stop wishing
If you don't let go
The things that you find
And you lose and you know

You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
The frame's too bright
So put the blinds down low and

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I wanna break on down
But I can't stop now

Heard this Jam and all of a sudden... I started a tomato garden, paid for the guy behind me at the toll booth, gave a waitress my phone number, decided not to quit my piano lessons, took a brisk 3 mile jog, cleaned underneath my fridge, let the guy sitting behind me at the movies keep explaining the plot line to his buddy, decided to stop grabbing so many napkins, came to a full complete stop at a stop sign, and called mom and told her I love her.

@New temp Phone-Ash I challenge ya, stop watching news for a week, no news whatsoever for a week. You'll be amazed how good life still is if you stop letting them scare you. Be safe, and live life. You get what you focus on my friend <3

I am too! Even though this song is 11 years old and this comment is 5 years old, Jack Johnson will forever have a place in my heart. So many memories
