[C] Call you up in the middle of the night.  
[Em] like a firefly without a light 

[Am] You were there like a slow torch burning 

[G] was a key that could use a little turning 

[C] So tired that I couldn't even sleep,  
[G] so many secrets I couldn't keep 

[Am] Promised myself I wouldn't weep,  
[G] one more promise I couldn't keep 

[F] seems no one can  
[G] help me now 

[C] in too deep, there's  
[Am] no way out 

[F] This time I have  
[Em] really led myself  
[G] astray 


[C] Runaway train never going back,  
[Em] wrong way on a one way track 

[Am] Seems like I should be getting somewhere 

[G] Somehow I'm neither here nor there 

[C] Can you help me remember how to smile 

[G] Make it somehow all seem worthwhile 

[Am] How on earth did I get so jaded 

[G] Life's mystery seems so faded 

[C] I can go where no one else can go 

[G] I know what no one else knows 

[Am] Here I am just drownin' in the rain 

[G] With a ticket for a runaway train 

[F] Everything is  
[G] cut and dry,  
[C] day and night,  
[Am] earth and sky 

[F] Somehow I  
[Em] don't know and believe  
[G] it 

Chorus + Instrumental chorus + instrumental of couplet above 

[C] Bought a ticket for a runaway train 

[G] Like a madman laughin' at the rain 

[Am] Little out of touch, little insane 

[G] Just easier than dealing with the pain 


[C] Runaway train never comin' back 

[Em] Runaway train tearin' up the track 

[Am] Runaway train burnin' in my veins 

[G] Runaway but it always seems the same
