I could see it coming from a mile away,
A heartache looking for a place to stay.
But I couldn't resist her and I couldn't be cool,
The Lord made a woman to make a man a fool.

Chorus:
It's an age old story but it still holds true,
There ain't no ending to what a man won't do.
He loves some woman till he goes insane,
Its a short sweet rid on a runaway train.

I was drunk and crazy by her sweet perfume,
But I knew stone sober I was being used.
Now the heartache lingers like a cheap cologne,
She took what she wanted and she was gone.

Chorus

It was almost worth it for the time we spent,
'Cause there ain't no future in a heart for rent.
Still she taught me something 'bout the facts of life,
That love cuts quicker than a switch- blade knife.

Chorus

It's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.
Love's a short sweet ride on a runaway train.
