Runaway Train

lyrics to Runaway Train / Tom Petty

Call you up in the middle of the night
like a firefly without a light
you were there like a blow 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 a 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 goin' 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.
