Last Train Home, Ballad


John Mayer is a philosopher. My all time favourite song is still Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” from Continuum. I fell in love after the first 2 seconds — literally.

No matter how you work it, things go wrong
I put my heart where it don’t belong
So if you’re comin’ with me, let me know
Maybe you’re the last train
Maybe you’re the last train home

— John MAYER, “Last Train Home” lyrics.

This new ballad version of “Last Train Home” is sublime; entirely delightful, and brimming with soul-salving beauty. “Shouldn’t Matter But It Does” is my favourite song from “Sob Rock“, but this new ballad is a close second.
