Run Away Train
Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night,
Like a firefly without a light,
You were there like a blow 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...
BRIDGE :
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.
CHORUS :
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 drowin' in the rain,
With a ticket for the runaway train.
BRIDGE :
Everything is cut and dry, day and night, earth and sky,
Somehow I just don't believe it.
CHORUS
+ CHORUS + INSTRUMENTAL

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