Runaway Train

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 somewhere.
Somehow I'm neither here no there.


Can you help me remember how to smile?
Make it somehow all 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 else knows.
Here I am just a drownin' in the rain,
<With a ticket for a 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 somewhere.
Somehow I'm neither here no there.


Music Interlude


Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin' at the rain
A little out of touch, little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain.


Runaway train never going back.
Wrong way on a one way track.
Seems like I should be getting somewhere.
Somehow I'm neither here no there.


Runaway train never comin' back.
Runaway train tearin' up the track.
Runaway train burnin' in my veins.
Runaway but it always seems the same.
