about

The cut-down Kellaways made a triumphal 2012 return to the studio for a swansong 10th album. The whole thing was done in a day. Unfortunately, there is only one song - the writer ran out of steam, gazing off into the sunset.

Journeys must end and so must the Kellaways. Trains have been great friends to this writer and I follow any set of tracks with curiosity, senses attenuated to the warp and weft of serendipity.

Track Name: Last Train
LAST TRAIN

The train’s slowing down, for one final time
I’m where I was going, the end of the line
Enjoyed the journey, fleeting but fine
One last station – in this world of mine

No guards, no porters, this station is strange
No fellow travellers on this last train
I’m peering out through the mist and the rain
At my destination – I guess I can’t complain

I made mistakes, I felt no distress
The give and the take, I left no debts
I raised my stake and hedged no bets
The life that this makes – hey no regrets
The life that this makes – hey no regrets

The platform is empty, I walk alone
My vision is washed out, no form and no tone
I pass through an archway, of ancient white stone
Dream dislocation – I think this must be home

I made mistakes, I felt no distress
The give and the take, I left no debts
I raised my stake and hedged no bets
The life that this makes – hey no regrets
The life that this makes – no regrets
I made my mistakes, hey no regrets
The give and the take, yeah, no regrets
I raised my stake, hey no regrets
The life that this makes – no regrets
