Runaway Train Songtext

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 lead myself astray

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 all seem worthwhile
How on earth did i get so jaded?
Life's mysteries seem so faded
I can go where noone 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

And everything seems cut and dry
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

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
It's just easier than dealing 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
I run away but it always seems the same

Erst jetzt, vor dem Hintergrund der derzeitigen Ereignisse, verstehe ich dieses Lied. Mir scheint, es haben sich so einige Stars für Ruhm und Geld in eine ausweglose Situation gebracht und bereuten es nachher zutiefst. In "Hotel California" von den Eagles wird das wohl auch beklagt.
