Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Runaway Train lyrics

Call you up in the middle of the night,
Like a fire fly without a light,
You were there like a blow torch burnin',
I was a key that could use a little turnin'

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 let myself pull stray

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

Can you help me remember how to smile,
Make it somehow seem all worth while,
How on earth did I get so jaded,
Last mystery seemed so naked

I can go where no one else can go,
I know what no one else has known,
Here I am just a drowning in the brain,
With a ticket for a runaway train

Everything seems judded inside,
Day and night earth and sky,
Somehow I just don't believe it

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

Want a ticket for a runaway train?,
Like a madman laughin' at the rain,
A little out of touch little in the brain,
Its just easier to deal 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,
Run away but it always seems the same
