Intro: [C C][C C]

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

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


Chorus:
C C              C C
 Runaway train never going back
Em Em              Em Em
 Wrong way on a one way track
Am Am                      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                  C C
 Can you help me remember how to smile
Em Em                   Em Em
 Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
Am Am                  Am Am
 How on earth did I get so jaded
G G               G G
 Life's mystery seems so faded
C C                C C 
 I can go where no one else can go
Em Em            Em Em
 I know what no one else knows
Am Am              Am Am
 Here I am just drownin’ in the rain
G G                    G G
 With a ticket for a runaway train
Pre-chorus :
F F             G G
Everything is cut and dry
C C              Am Am
Day and night Earth and sky
F F        Em Em            G G
Somehow I just don't believe it


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


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


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


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


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