about

A blusey song that chronicles the dying throes of a relationship.

lyrics

I don’t think our love can survive.
When you say it will,
You’re only talking jive.
We’ve got a one way ticket on a runaway train.

I can’t tell what you see in me,
And I know for you,
I’m a mystery.
We’ve got a one way ticket on a runaway train.

I thought we were going places.
I thought that we were right on track.
But we’re riding on a train to nowhere,
And there’s no way our love is coming back.

Empty hearts and broken dreams,
This love affair ain’t what it seems.
We’ve got a one way ticket on a runaway train.

We cling together yet times running out.
Our love is over and there’s no doubt.
We’ve got a one way ticket on a runaway train.
We’ve got a one way ticket on this runaway train.
