  • Runnin' to Boston, heart on my sleeve
    Two hundred bodies is all I need
    These boys are hungry and a little vain
    The truth is a runaway train

    Flew down to airy California sun
    So many people tryna be someone
    Michelle Obama, you know my name
    The truth is a runaway train

    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train
    The truth is a runaway train
    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train
    The truth is a runaway train

    From California flew down to Rome
    Feels like the whole world is my home
    I miss your laughter, I miss the rain
    The truth is a runaway train

    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train
    The truth is a runaway train
    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train
    The truth is a runaway train

    Even when you're innocent, all the leaves the same
    And all those judges are Shakespearean in shame
    And you know I loved you as I loved you then
    When you were the image of an angel

    Oh oh! Runaway train, come on now
    Hey oh! Runaway train

    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train, ah
    The truth is a runaway train
    It's a runaway train, it's a runaway train
    The truth is a runaway train

    It's a runaway train, yeah oh, runaway train
    Ooh, it's a runaway train
