Composed and performed by Enya, lyrics by Roma Ryan, engineered by Nicky Ryan Trains and Winter Rains, is track no. 5 of the album And Winter Came (2008). the song is 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."

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.

  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.

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 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. (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)

Donald is having fun with his small train set but removes Chip and Dale's tree after declaring it "out of scale". As the chipmunks try to get their tree back, Donald chases them. The chipmunks make themselves comfy in a miniature house. Donald finds their scale fits with the house and torments them with weather changes. Chip and Dale retrieve their tree and make it fit to scale as a giant redwood tree. This episode is unique because it is a take on Walt Disney's backyard railroad the Carolwood Pacific. The engine is modeled after the Lille Belle, his live steam engine and Canyonville was one of the towns the Carolwood Pacific Railroad serviced in Walt's back yard. The Carolwood Pacific Railroad inspired Disney to include railroad attractions in the design for the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. Railroad attractions in Disney theme parks around the world are now commonplace. The barn structure that was used as the railroad's control center is now at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum in Los Angeles' Griffith Park. The Lilly Belle, some of the freight cars, and the caboose are now on display at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, California.
