Lyrics

Soul Asylum - Runaway Train

 

Call you up in the middle of the night

 

Like a firefly without a light

 

You were there like a blowtorch 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

 

I 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 nor 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 dried

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 nor there

 

Bought a ticket for a runaway train

 

Like a madman laughing at the rain

 

A little out of touch a 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 nor there

Runaway train nevering back

Runaway train tearing up the track

Runaway train burning in my veins

I run away but it always seems the same
