Waldwick Singer Pens Song Of Train Crash At His Beloved Hoboken Station

WALDWICK, N.J. -- A Waldwick singer-songwriter who performed on a Hoboken train platform for two and a half years considers himself fortunate that he wasn't there the morning of a deadly crash late last month.

It shook him into writing a song about it.

"Lucky for me, I can say every person I know that uses Hoboken Terminal on a regular basis was safe from harm," 21-year-old Tim Gysin said. "But it's also very scary to think that I could've been affected by this if this were to happen while I was performing."

The result is "Diesel."

"There were people on the groundAnd people in the airMoms and dads of familiesHanging on a prayerThere were men in blue and civilians tooThat helped out all aroundOn the day that Diesel came to town...."

"I have met so many new people playing in the train station and I ran into a lot of people I already knew there," said Gysin, a recent William Paterson University music graduate.

"I never want to consider myself to be in danger when I am doing what I love to do," he said.
