Runaway Train

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without any light
You were there like a slow 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

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
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 drowning in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train
 

And everything seems cut and dry
Day and night, Earth and sky
Somehow I just don’t believe it
 

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
 

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a mad man laughing at the rain
A 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 nor there
 

Runaway train never coming back
Runaway train tearing up the track
Runaway train burning in my face
I runaway but it always seems the same
