Intro: [C][C]

1st Verse :
C                   C
 Call you up in the middle of the night
Em              Em
 Like a firefly without a light
Am                     Am
 You were there like a blowtorch burning
G                       G
 I was a key that could use a little turning
C                C
 So tired that I couldn't even sleep
Em               Em
 So many secrets I couldn't keep
Am               Am
 Promised myself I wouldn't leave
G                 G
 One more promise I couldn't keep

Pre-Chorus :
   F                G
It seems no one can help me now
        C                   Am
And I'm in too deep there's no way out
F                Em           G            G
This time I have really led myself astray


Chorus:
C              C
 Runaway train never going back
Em              Em
 Wrong way on a one way track
Am                      Am
 Seems like I should be getting somewhere
G                    G                G     Gx     A|-----------------------|
 Somehow I'm neither here nor there                E|----3---5---3---0------|


2nd verse :
C                  C
 Can you help me remember how to smile
Em                   Em
 Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
Am                  Am
 How on earth did I get so jaded
G               G
 Life's mystery seems so faded
C                C 
 I can go where no one else can go
Em            Em
 I know what no one else knows
Am              Am
 Here I am just drownin’ in the rain
G                    G
 With a ticket for a runaway train
Pre-chorus :
F             G
Everything is cut and dry
C              Am
Day and night Earth and sky
F        Em            G
Somehow I just don't believe it


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


Solo :
[C][Em][Am][G]
[C][Em][Am][G]
[F-G][C-Am][F-Em][G]


Bridge :
C>let ring         (C)
 Got a ticket for a runaway train
Em>let ring   (Em)
 Like a madman laughing at the rain
Am>let ring         (Am)
 Little out of touch little insane
G>let ring             G
 It's just easier than dealing with the pain


Chorus:
C              C
 Runaway train never going back
Em              Em
 Wrong way on a one way track
Am                      Am
 Seems like I should be getting somewhere
G                    G
 Somehow I'm neither here nor there
C              C
 Runaway train never going back
Em             Em
 Runaway train tearing up the track
Am             Am
 Runaway train burning in my veins
G               G
 Runaway but it always seems the same.


Ending :
[C][Em][Am][G] x2
