Every so often a song really hits us. Stop this Train by John Mayer is one for me. Mayer is certainly a poet and not a bad musician either (understatement intended). This song has both simple and elegant musical lines and all that marries amazingly well with the pensive and poignant words. The percussion even moves along like a train. Nice. So, if you’ve ever felt the sting of time passing, and you’re not as young as you once were, this song might be for you. It might help you live well within the gift of time that you’ve been given.
