Runaway Train Lyrics

Artist: Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a 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 no 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

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


Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin' at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
Just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train never comin' back
Runaway train tearin' up the track
Runaway train burnin' in my veins
Runaway but it always seems the same

Quite good Lyrics... but there is a mistake: "Everything seems cut and dry" - rather than "everything is" - you know. ;)

If anybody spoke of Soul Asylum, I was all ears⋯and alert to hear what might be said.

Runaway Train is a train that somehow gets off the tracks and manages to somehow still run without tracks.

This 1993 Grammy Best Rock Single is what goes beyond enjoying.

Totally enjoying a situation since 15 years, making up words sure is enjoyful!

Can't forget Karl Mueller!
