video to watch; download lyrics and song in mp3 format, video pictures HQ. Composed and performed by Enya, lyrics by Roma Ryan, engineered by Nicky Ryan, The first single from
the album And Winter Came (2008), Trains and Winter Rains, is track no. 5. Here the perspective is different from the good old Christmas theme on the previous tracks. The music video to this song shows a city skyline at night, with people waiting for a train and few snowflakes are drifting in the air. Waiting for transportation is also a part of the modern Christmas experience.

Underneath stormy skies.

  Neon signs in the night,



Red and blue city lights.

  Trains and winter rains,

No going back, no going home.

Trains across the plains,

And in the sky, a star alone.

  Everytime, it's the same.



One more night, one more train.

Where they go, no one knows.

  Trains and winter rains,
No going back, no going home.
Trains across the plains,
And in the sky, a star alone.
Trains and winter rains,
No going back, no going home.
Trains across the plains,
And in the sky, a star alone.

  Trains and winter rains,
No going back, no going home.
Trains across the plains,
And in the sky, a star alone.
Trains and winter rains,
No going back, no going home.
Trains across the plains,
And in the sky, a star alone.
 
Reviews
Trains and Winter Rains was chosen as a single because Enya particularly enjoyes the percussion arrangement in it. Roma describes the song as a "journey from home that everyone must make when they start to get too comfortable." Enya said: "I find traveling by train gives you time to think and reflect. The rhythm of a train journey is particularly soothing; it allows you to listen to your thoughts, even plan the future, and daydream especially." Also the gloves in the music video hold a special special significance for her: "I remember wearing gloves for the first time when I left home for College. They were my Mother's gloves, and a source of comfort. For me, singing the lyric, I put my own memories into it." (Billboard Magazine, 2008)

Trains and Winter Rains was the first song to be taken from the album and is my favourite so far. Despite the fairly 'normal' verses, the chorus bring us a lovely upbeat (well as upbeat as Enya can get) more upbeat than the rest and she's possibly the only woman who can singe the same line three times and call it a chorus. (FemaleFirst, Nov. 2008)

Trains and Winter Rains is quite perky as well, but with drums, chants and wood blocks more typical of Enya's repertoire. (The Badger-Herald, Nov. 2008)
