Runaway Train - Soul Asylum

Strophe) 

Call you up in the middle of the night 

Like a firefly without a light 

You were there like a blowtorch burnin´

I was a key that could use a little turnin´

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 

 

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 

 

 

 

Refrain) 

Runaway train never going back 

Wrong way on a one way track 

Seems like I should be getting somewhere 

Somehow I´m neither here not there 

 

Strophe) 

Can you help me remember how to smile 

Make it somehow all seem worthwile 

How on earth did I get so jaded 

Life´s mysteries seem so faded 

I can go where no one else can go 

I know what no one else knows 

Here I am just drowning in the rain 

With a ticket for a runaway train 

 

And everything seems cut and dry 

Day and nicht, Earth and sky 

Somehow I just don´t believe it 

 

Refrain) 

Runaway train never going back 

Wrong way on a one way track 

Seems like I should be getting somewhere 

Somehow I´m neither here not there 

 

Bridge) 

Got a ticket for a runaway train 

Like a madman laughing at the rain 

Little out of touch 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 not there

 

Runaway train never coming back 

Runaway train tearing up the track 

Runaway train burning in my veins 

Id runaway but it always seems the same

 

Runaway train never coming back 

Runaway train tearing up the track 

Runaway train burning in my veins 

Id runaway but it always seems the same......
