I always envisioned this as a country tune. I would love to have some fancy Nashville musicians cover this song and make it a worldwide chart-topping hit.

If you could only hear the final version in my head. :-)

Feel free to reinterpret the song and make it your own.

I even threw in the lyrics for you!

Peace,
K


Plastic Rose Petals

Verse 1

He caught a whiff of her cheap perfume

As he stumbled over luggage in his hotel room

Paid for the night but I doubt he stays

Gazing at the woman in her lingerie

Competition game, set, and match

Gloating at the sight of such a beautiful catch

Their eyes meet but they barely touch

Afraid that the stranger might say too much


Chorus 1x

She’s on a midnight train going nowhere

Ain’t nothing gonna stop her now

(And) come hell or high water

She’s gotta find a way to make it somehow

But I got a funny feeling

That it’s all a harbinger of change

Those cheap little plastic rose petals on the bed don’t smell the same



Verse 2

Playing through the wall is a familiar tune

Wait…. I think it’s Johnny Mathis

In comes the chorus he stares into space

and then she pauses - (and wonders what the catch is)

A broken neon sign flashes just one letter

As she’s thinking to herself that I can do better

Too late though cause shes in too deep

Waiting for her money but he’s fast asleep


Chorus 1x

She’s on a midnight train going nowhere

Ain’t nothing gonna stop her now

(And) come hell or high water

She’s gotta find a way to make it somehow

But I got a funny feeling

That it’s all a harbinger of change

Those cheap little plastic rose petals on the bed don’t smell the same


Verse 3

Now she’s leaving on the next thing smoking

and what little she has is all packed

Told herself if she ever got a chance to leave she wasn’t coming back

Cause she’s seen to many good girls perish and big dreams just fade away

High hopes ain’t nothing but an adjective and noun if you waste it away



Chorus (3x)


She’s on a midnight train going somewhere

Ain’t nothing gonna stop her now

(And) come hell or high water

She’s gonna find a way to make it somehow

But I got a funny feeling

That it’s all a harbinger of change

Those cheap little plastic rose petals on the bed don’t smell the same

End.
