Fast train to Slough

I followed that bead of sweat
To the small of your back
From the nape of your neck
Lightin’ it up
With every drag upon my cigarette

The opening lyrics to a song called Slow Train to Dawn by UK band The The from their Infected album released in1986.

Fast forward to Paddington Station, 2008; I’m running for a fast train to Slough:

Running for a fast train to Slough at Paddington Station.
