Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a slow torch burning
Was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't eat or 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
Runaway 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 drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

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

Runaway train, never going back
Runaway 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
Just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back
Runaway on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back
Runaway train, tearing up the tracks
Runaway train, burning in my veins
I run away but it always seems the same
