Soul Asylum – Runaway Train – 1993

    Paroles

    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 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 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

    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 madman laughin’ at the rain
    Little out of touch, little insane
    Just easier than dealing with the pain

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