I could see it coming from a mile away
A heartache lookin' for a place to stay
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool
Lord, can't a woman make a man a fool

It's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman 'til he goes insane
It's a short sweet ride om a runaway train

I was drunk and crazy from her sweet perfume
But I knew stone sober I was being used
Now the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne
She took all she wanted then she was gone

Well it's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman 'til he goes insane
It's a short sweet ride om a runaway train

It was almost worth it for the time we spent
There ain't no future in a heart for rent
Still she taught me something 'bout the facts of life
Love cuts quicker than a switchblade knife

It's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman 'til he goes insane
It's a short sweet ride om a runaway train

It's an age-old story but it still holds true
There ain't no end to what a man won't do
He'll love some woman 'til he goes insane
It's a short sweet ride om a runaway train
A short sweet ride on a runaway train
