Got this empty feelin'
Broken soul and I'm not believin' that
She's gone and I'm the fool again
Up high, take me down
The time goes on and my tears hit the ground
And I look back, I find that she's a friend
I'm runnin' fast, I'm gettin' nowhere
And I still remember the smell of your hair
And the way you looked whenever I would hitch a ride

And you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

I still recall the day we met
The sky was cloudy how could I forget the way you looked in that blue dress
I sit alone in a room of friends and scattered thoughts dance through my head and I wonder if you'd ever love me at all
By my next picture in my head, and I still remember the last thing you said was
I've gotta go, and please don't follow me

And you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

Yeah you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

Runaway
Runaway
Runaway
