[Intro]
C


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


[Pre-Chorus]
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 led myself astray


[Chorus]
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


[Verse]
C
Can you help me remember how to smile
Em
Make it somehow all seem worthwile
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
Em
I know what no one else knows
Am
Here I am just drowning in the rain
G
With a ticket for a runaway train


[Pre-Chorus]
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


[Chorus]
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

[Solo]
C  Em  Am  G   F  G  C  Am  F  Em  G


[Bridge]
C
Got a ticket for a runaway train
Em
Like a madman laughing at the rain
Am
Little out of touch little insane
G
It's just easier than dealing with the pain


[Chorus]
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


[Chorus]
C
Runaway train never coming back
Em
Runaway train tearing up the track
Am
Runaway train burning in my veins
G
I'd runaway but it always seems the same.


[Outro]
