When I heard Elton John's This Train Don't Stop There Anymore (2001) I liked it more than any Elton song I'd heard for years.
One thing about Bernie Taupin's lyrics bugs me, though. The metaphor is a train, about how the singer was a mad tearaway in the past, an express train:
I used to be the main express
All steam and whistles heading west...
That makes sense, but then he sings about how he's changed:
But this train don't stop,
This train don't stop,
This train don't stop there anymore
Isn't that the thing about an express train, that it doesn't make stops? That's what makes it an express, right? So what's this about it not stopping any more?
Guess I've missed something.
