Call you up in the middle of the night
You were there like a slow torch burning

So many secrets I couldn't keep
One more promise I couldn't keep
It seems no one can help me now
There's no way out

Wrong way on a one way track
Somehow I'm neither here nor there
Can you help me remember how to smile
How on earth did I get so jaded

I know what no one else knows
With a ticket for a runaway train
Everything is cut and dry
Somehow I just don't believe it
Runaway train never going back
Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Like a madman laughin' at the rain
Just easier than dealing with the pain
Runaway train never comin' back
Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Runaway train tearin' up the track
Runaway but it always seems the same
