Beth Crowley - Runaway Train Lyrics

I saw the writing on the wall
In fact you painted me a picture
And I don't know why I cared
Enough to mold myself to fit you

My heart is a runaway train
Speeds so fast that I can't catch it
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
When did I become so reckless?

I've never been that good at love
I tell myself that I don't need it
But I just can't stay away
I want so badly to believe it

My heart is a runaway train
Speeds so fast that I can't catch it
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
When did I become so reckless?

Another note in the middle of the night
Saying "I can't stay but I promise you I tried
...You're gonna be fine"
So I take your things and I shove them in a closet
Swear I'm done but I always break my promise
In case this one's it

My heart is a runaway train
Speeds so fast that I can't catch it
Is the pleasure worth the pain?
When did I become so reckless?
When did I become so reckless?

    This came out over a year ago? I remember walking through the hall of my school when it came out... ps- the second verse through the end reminds me of Fang and Max from Maximum Ride.

  9. Lakshmi Manoj

    So, who else immediately thought of Andreil after seeing the name of the song?

  10. Vlasta Vysvobozená

    I am obsessed with all of ur songs tbh ♥️♥️♥️ you should do beautiful creatures!! It's an amazing book series and has a movie but the movie isn't very good

  25. Sara Harrison

    I remember when you first started making songs. I still think you deserve so many more subs! Amazing as always!

  26. Rosalie de beus

    Also, I know you get a lot of these but I thought it'd be worth a short anyways. I recently finished 'Glitter' by Aprilynne Pike, a book which's sequel will be published February 12th. It's absolutely amazing.
    It's a combination of science fiction, historical fiction and fantasy, and I really think you'll like it!!
    Much love from a fan <3

  27. Rosalie de beus

    Absolutely love this!

  30. Diana LoL LOL

    I love your songs! They are so inspiring! Know in 2018 almost all songs are just created just for parties and for people who think that the inspiring songs are fullish! Your songs make me forget about this big issue! I also really like to sing and write songs! A lot of people know a days don’t understand why I like these types of music! They just can’t and this makes me feel different... but somehow in a good way! Continue with your great work !!!!!!!

  47. Leaf [Nightcore & AMV]

    I love your book related songs and what I am going to write is an idea that crossed my mind like literally in that moment when I scrolled through your playlist of book related songs: Have you read any series from Julie Kagawa? If the answer is yes and you liked it - could you imagine to write a song about that series? I'd be satisfied with only one song about only one series. But - and this is only a more than crazy fantasy of mine, which I don't believe to become true - I'd also love a song about every series. But like I said - that depends on the series you read, if you read any series from Julie Kagawa at all, and if you liked it 😊
    I hope I didn't weird someone out 😅 It's just that Julie Kagawa's books are like a drug to me and that's why that idea popped up in my mind 😅😂
    Greetings from Germany 💕

    Jolie Ma
