My Sunday Song – “G Train” by Thirdstory

For My Sunday Song #70, I am going with a lesser known band called Thirdstory.  The song is called “G Train”.  It is off their debut E.P called ‘Searching’ which I did a review back in 2016.  The band consists of only three singer/songwriters – Elliott Skinner, Ben Lusher, and Richard Saunder.  And let me tell you, these guys can sing.

I first came across them when they opened for Tori Kelly back in 2016 on her tour.  The guys were so incredible and their harmonizing was second to none.  Their performance made me go out and download their E.P. because there was one song in the show that stood out to me and is now one of my favorite songs.

“G Train” was written due to the band’s schedule in rehearsing.  One of the members was was always taking the NY Subway back and forth.  On the video, theFader.com states…

…the three members of the group trade stories about lovesickness as they ride the subway through New York City’s boroughs. The song is a perfect soundtrack for the type of deep contemplation that only happens on the train, when you have altogether too much time with your own thoughts.

The song itself feels like a train ride.  From the opening notes, to the drum beats to the pacing of the song, it is as if you are riding on the train as they are singing.  Their soulful vocals and beautiful harmonies takes you on a stunning ride of lovesickness.  So sit back and enjoy the ride!  Happy Sunday!


 

“G Train”

[Verse 1]
G train on the weekend, speed up or slow down
Gathering gathering, get off this train or you’re gonna go back uptown
G train on the weekend, there’s no way out
Traveling traveling, it’s 2am and I thought I’d be home by now

[Pre Chorus]
What am I doing this for?
I followed you to your door
I should’ve already known
To keep going on home

[Chorus]
Love, I gotta warn you
Starting to catch onto
What you make me go through (get going or I’m gone)
I’ve been losing patience
Your mind is always changing
Back and forth, I’m waiting (get going or I’m gone forever)

[Verse 2]
G train on the weekend, hum and reload
A lullaby for the guy who fell down nearby cause he did a bit too much blow
G train on the weekend, just me and my head
Wondering why you deny my love when I keep on running back to your side

[Pre Chorus]
What am I doing this for?
I followed you to your door
I should’ve already known
To get going on home
You told me don’t take it too fast
Cause you got an ugly past
I think I could help but you don’t
Guess get going on home

[Chorus]
Love, I gotta warn you
Starting to catch onto
What you make me go through (get going or I’m gone)
I’ve been losing patience
Your mind is always changing
Back and forth I’m waiting (get going or I’m gone forever)

[Bridge]
I won’t, I won’t wait here
I won’t wait here for you
I won’t, I won’t wait here
I won’t wait here for you to get on board

[Chorus] (x2)
Love, I gotta warn you
Starting to catch onto
What you make me go through (get going or I’m gone)
I’ve been losing patience
Your mind is always changing
Back and forth I’m waiting (get going or I’m gone forever)

[Outro]
I’ve been on a G train, in and out of Brooklyn
Come and let me love you, I could take you places
I’ve been on a G train, in and out of Brooklyn
Come and let me love you, I could take you places
