Runaway Train

No matter how hard we try we can never catch that Runaway Train

We must stare at the problems that face us in daily life and live with them 

Because if we don’t live with them, how will we learn from them?

The mistakes that life brings are meant for us to learn and make again

We can’t just hop onto the Runaway Train that takes us to a place far away

Where all of our problems just seem to fade

“Runaway Train never going back, Wrong way on a one way track…”

These are lyrics by Soul Asylum 

This is what I am reminded of when I hear the words “Runaway Train”

    I have that song running through my brain, ever since I saw the contest, 'Runaway Train.' Seriously, I am not really a big fan of Soul Asylum, but I remember the video for this very well made song. I can't get it out of my head! Hahahaha!. I have played so many different types of music today, and THAT song keeps coming back! I am on a runaway train, that keeps circling in my brain lol Chris.
