Riff: Wampire – “Trains”

May 1, 2013

You gotta be insane/Keepin’ me waiting for your trains/I’m always waiting for your trains

from Trains lyrics by Wampire

She is not a brick house. Nor a lady. Nor a maniac. She is a train, summer garage-soul dreamers. One that can drive a naive 20-something insane. Things are compounded by the rain. Big drops of pain. But slow your eye roll and you’ll find endearing company in its hot, concrete jungle sax strut.
