Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Runaway Train  Soul Asylum

[C]Call you up in the middle of the night - [Em/B]Like a fire without a light
[Am]You were like a blow torch burning - [G]I was a key that could use a little turning
[C]So tired that I couldn't even sleep - [Em/B]So many secrets I couldn't keep
[Am]Promised myself I wouldn't weep - [G]One more promise I couldn't keep
It seems[F] no one can help[G] me now  - I'm in[C] too deep
There's no[Am] way out - This[F] time I have real[Em]ly led myself[G] astray

[C]Runaway train never going back - [Em/B]Wrong way on a one way track
[Am]Seems like I should be getting somewhere - [G]Somehow I'm neither here nor there

[C]Can you help me remember how to smile - [Em/B]Make it all somehow seem worthwhile
[Am]How on earth did I get so jaded? - [G]Life's mystery seems so faded
[C]I can go where no one else can go - [Em/B]I know what no one else knows
[Am]Here I am just drownin' in the rain - [G]With a ticket for a runaway train
Eve[F]rything is cut [G]and dry - Day [C]and night earth[Am] and sky
Some[F]how I [Em]just dont believe[G] it -

[C]Bought a ticket for a runaway train - [Em/B]Like a madman laughing at the rain
[Am]A little out of touch a little insane - [G]Its just easier than dealing with the pain


[Em/B]Runaway train never coming back - (Runaway train)
[Am]Runaway train tearing up the track - (Runaway train)
[Am]Runaway train burning in my veins - (Runaway train)
[G]Runaway but it always seems the same.
