railroad tracks

i missed the train
and stood outside in the rain
but reached my destination just the same
and i know that the train
will never pass this way again
because none of the passengers knew my name
so standing here in the rain
i can only feel the pain
of regret extinguishing my life's very flame
if i could only gain
satisfactory shelter from the rain
i might one day find a way out of this stupid game
