Elton John - "Runaway Train" lyrics

There's a hungry road I can only hope's Gonna eat me up inside There's a drifting spirit coming clean In the eye of a lifelong fire Tell Monday I'll be around next week I'm running ahead of my days In the shotgun chance that scattered us I've seen the error of my ways
Well we've wrapped ourselves in golden crowns Like sun gods spitting rain Found a way home written on this map Like red dye in my veins In the hardest times that come around The fear of losing grows I've lost and seen the world shut down It's a darkness no one knows

And I've poured out the pleasure and dealt with the pain Standing in a station waiting in the rain I'm starting to feel a little muscle again But love is lost like a runaway train Oh I'm out of control and out of my hands I'm tearing like a demon through no man's land Trying to get a grip on my life again Nothing hits harder than a runaway train
