Runaway Train Lyrics by Soul Asylum


I really like this song. Eventhough it dates back to the 90's, hearing this song in my playlist seems almost like a 100-percent possibility. I just can't deny that at a point in my life, when things were so hard for me, I handled all the burden and became a focal point for the greatest war my life has known. It was so hard to be in between two great forces and you just want to be neutral as much as you can. But being neutral seems like a very impossible thing to do as being neutral makes you absorb all the hatred and pain of all sides of the story. At one point, all I wanted was a ticket for a runaway train.

Runaway Train / Soul Asylum

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a blowtorch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

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 led myself astray

Runaway train never going 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 all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life's mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

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


Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughin' at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
Just easier than dealing with the pain


Runaway train never comin' back
Runaway train tearin' up the track
Runaway train burnin' in my veins
Runaway but it always seems the same

  1. In between those two forces is really difficult especially if you think those two forces were equal. I think this wont happen to you if you havent taken the other force as great force. Maybe you have hurt the other force much.
