Intro: C

C
 Call you up in the middle of the night
C/B
 Like a firefly without a light
Am
 You were there like a blowtorch burning
G
 I was a key that could use a little turning
C
 So tired that I couldn't even sleep
C/B
 So many secrets I couldn't keep
Am
 Promised myself I wouldn't weep
G
 One more promise I couldn't keep

   F                G
It seems no one can help me now
    C                    Am
I'm in too deep, there's no way out
F                Em            G
This time I have really lead myself 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?
C/B
 Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
Am
 How on earth did I get so jaded?
G
 Life's mysteries seem so faded
C
 I can go where no one else can go
C/B
 I know what no one else knows
Am
 Here I am, just drowning in the rain
G
 With a ticket for a runaway train

    F                G
And everything seems cut and dry
C              Am
Day and night, earth and sky
F        Em            G
Somehow I just don't believe it

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 | C | C/B | C/B | Am | Am | G | G |
| F | G | C | Am | F | Em | G | G |

C
 Bought a ticket for a runaway train
C/B
 Like a madman laughing at the rain
Am
 A little out of touch, a little insane
G
 It's just easier than dealing with the pain

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
 Runaway train never coming back
Em
 Runaway train tearing up the track
Am
 Runaway train burning in my veins
G
 I run away but it always seems the same
