Runaway Train

Soul Asylum

      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 drownin' in the rain
      With a ticket for a runaway train

      Everything is cut and dry
      Day and night, earth and sky
      Somehow I just don't believe it


      Bought a ticket for a runaway train
      Like a madman laughin' at the rain
      Little out of touch, little insane
      Just easier than dealing with the pain

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