Runaway Train Lyrics

by Elton John

There's a hungry road I can only hope it's
Gonna eat me up inside
There's a drifting spirit coming clean
In the eye of a lifelong fire

Till Monday I'll be around next week
I'm running ahead of my days
In the shotgun chance that scattered us
I've seen the error of my ways, oh oh

Well we've wrapped ourselves in golden crowns
Like sun Gods spitting rain
Found a way home written on this map
Like red dye in my veins

In the hardest times that come around
The fear of losing grows
I've lost and seen the world shut down
It's a darkness no one knows, oh oh

And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain
Standing in a station waiting in the rain
I'm starting to feel a little muscle again
Love is lost like a runaway train

Oh I'm out of control and out of my hands
I'm tearing like a demon through no man's land
I'm trying to get a grip on my life again
Nothing hits harder than a runaway train

Oh
And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain
Standing in a station waiting in the rain
I'm starting to feel a little muscle again
Love is lost like a runaway train

Oh I'm out of control and out of my hands
I'm tearing like a demon through no man's land
I'm trying to get a grip on my life again
Nothing hits harder than a runaway train

And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain
Standing in a station waiting in the rain
I'm starting to feel a little muscle again
Love is lost like a runaway train, yea
