I keep wishing you'd fly away
How can you hold yourself down?
You carry on like this every other day
You're turning into the sound
You've got touchin' on the line, but leaving is on your mind
You tell me everything is fine, just fine
On a runaway train tonight

You say "I love you in another way"
You say you are leaving this town
Drive me up to your hideaway, as you were burning it down

Now I need a reason to keep away, or get up off my back
I can't stop it or turn away until I run out of track
I got touchin' on the line, but leaving is on my mind
I'll tell you everything is fine - just fine
On a runaway train tonight
