Runaway Love

?
we stole this love









like a runaway train












?
we jumped on




























hand in hand














stumbling, silly, and drunk with play







?
our love is great





























just like a train



















fast, and fun, full of weird things













?
our love traveled through wind and rain









just like a glorious runaway train






?
but like all train rides














we must come to an end













?
a runaway like ours always has a tragic end












?
no train can go forever














of this we were sure













but a forever like ours might have endured










?
we loved each other crazy





















on our runaway train










through the snow, the wind, and even the rain











?
So what could bring such a train to a stop?











It was our parting fates that brought us to a halt













?
to love someone like you









means knowing when to pull the brake














when we seem like more than you can take









?
we stole this love




























like a runaway train















?
we jumped on










hand in hand









despite all the fates
