Runaway Train - Lyrics

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a slow torch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning
So tired that I couldn't even sleep
So many secrets I couldn't keep
Promised myself I wouldn't weep
One more promise I couldn't keep
It seems no one can help me now
I'm in too deep there's no way out
This time I have really led myself astray
Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting some way
Somehow I'm neither here nor there
(Nor there, nor there, nor there)
Can you help me remember how to smile
Make it somehow seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life's mystery seems so faded
I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one elses knows
Here I am just drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for the runaway train
And everything seems cut and dry
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just don't believe it
Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting some way
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin' at the rain
A little out of touch, a little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain
A runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting some way
Somehow I'm neither here nor there
Runaway train never going back
Runaway train tearing up the track
Runaway train burning in my veins
Run away but I always seem the same
