Runaway Train Lyrics - Soul Asylum

Review The Song (2)



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 a-drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut and dried
Day and night, earth and sky
Somehow I just don't believe it

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

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
A little out of touch, a little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain

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

Runaway train, never coming back
Runaway train, tearing up the track
Runaway train, burning in my veins
I run away but it always seems the same

It's about heroin.

Funny how people miss-interpret stuff, so often, while the real meaning is often rather a contra-indication then what they make of it.

He explains in the lyrics, that heroin is pretty much a one-way train. Once your in to deep, there really is no way out. Morphine-addiction is mostly a life long addiction.

Oh yeah, this got heroin written all over it.

But then again, most people don't even know how heroin looks like, and just a very little amount of non-users understand what it can do to some one, and give to some one.

Stay in denial, ofcourse your favorite artist wasn't on heroin, don't be silly! :')

This song is so inspirational. it just makes me want to cry everytime. especially when he says, "It seems no one can help me out. im in too deep, there's no way out." everyone feels like theres no help and theyve led themselves astray but this song just reminds me, there's always a way out. nothing is ever as bad as it seems in the moment. and the part where it says lifes mysteries seems to faded...i think it means when u grow up, the big mysteries and secrets that once seemed so important&&amazing are forgotten.
