Soul Asylum is an American alternative rock band that formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1983. more »

Call you up in the middle of the night 
Like a firefly without a light 
You were there like a slow torch 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 is cut and dry
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 laughin' at the rain
 Little out of touch, little insane
Just easier than dealing with the pain

 Runaway train never comin' 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  Runaway but it always seems the same
