Try "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum. It was a pretty popular song about 10 years ago. Here are the lyrics:

Call you up in the middle of the night

Like a firefly without a light

You were there like a blowtorch burning

I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't even sleep

So many secrets I couldn't keep

I promised myself I wouldn't weep

One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,

I'm in too deep; there's no way out

This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?

Make it somehow all seem worthwhile

How on earth did I get so jaded?

Life's mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go

I know what no one else knows

Here I am just a-drownin' in the rain

With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut and dry,

Day and night, earth and sky,

Somehow I just don't believe it

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train

Like a madman laughing at the rain

A little out of touch, a little insane

It's just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back

Wrong way on a one-way track

Seems like I should be getting somewhere

Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back

Runaway train, tearing up the track

Runaway train, burning in my veins

I run away but it always seems the same

It seems like the video flashed pictures and information about missing kids, but it's been so long that I don't remember exactly. Maybe someone else does?

This is the first song that popped in my head.

Anyone remember seeing a young Bon Jovi singing this on American Bandstand? ::

-Runaway-

On the street where you live girls talk about their social lives

They?re made of lipstick, plastic and paint, a touch of sable in their eyes

All your life all you?ve asked when?s your daddy gonna talk to you

You were living in another world tryin? to get your message through.

No one heard a single word you said.

They should have seen it in your eyes

What was going around your heart.

Chorus:

Ooh, she?s a little runaway.

Daddy?s girl learned fast

All those things he couldn?t say.

Ooh, she?s a little runaway.

A different line every night guaranteed to blow your mind

See you out on the streets, call me for a wild time

So you sit home alone ?cause there?s nothing left that you can do

There?s only pictures hung in the shadows left there to look at you

You know she likes the lights at nights on the neon broadway signs

She don?t really mind, it?s only love she hoped to find

Repeat chorus

No one heard a single word she said

They should have seen it in your eyes

What was going around your heart

Ooh, she?s a little runaway

Daddy?s girl learned fast

All those things he couldn?t say

Ooh, she?s a little runaway

Daddy?s girl learned fast

Now she works the night away

Ooh, she?s a little runaway

Daddy?s girl learned fast

All those things he couldn?t say

Ooh, she?s a little runaway

Daddy?s girl learned fast

Now she was the night away

You have called me out, Muzik. I totally remember that!

Who else could pull off wearing 45 pastel scarves with an acid washed jean jacket but good ole Jon Bon Jovi? ::

i've looked everywhere for the lyrics to "choices" by everlast, and cant find them. can anyone else?

I think jonesin66 might have been talking about "What It's Like"...check out the 2nd verse...

What It's Like

Everlast

We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change

The hair on his face is dirty, dreadlocked and full of mange

He ask the man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes

Get a job you f***in' slob's all he replied

[CHORUS]

God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues

Then you really might know what it's like [X4]

Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love

He said don't worry about a thing baby doll I'm the man you've been dreamin' of

But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call

And she sweared g*d damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls

And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors

They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a whore

[CHORUS]

God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose

Then you really might know what it's like [X4]

I've seen a rich man beg

I've seen a good man sin

I've seen a tough man cry

I've seen a loser win

And a sad man grin

I heard an honest man lie

I've seen the good side of bad

And the down side of up

And everything between

I licked the silver spoon

Drank from the golden cup

Smoked the finest green

I stroked daddies dimes at least a couple of times

Before I broke their heart

You know where it ends

Yo, it usually depends on where you start

I knew this kid named Max

He used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs

He liked to hang out late at night

Liked to get sh*t faced

And keep pace with thugs

Until late one night there was a big gun fight

Max lost his head

He pulled out his chrome .45

Talked some sh*t

And wound up dead

Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of his pain

You know it crumbles that way

At least that's what they say when you play the game

[CHORUS]

God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose

Then you really might know what it's like [X4]

To have to lose...

How about "The Pregnant Teen Who Ran Away and Became A Street Kid"? It's a rare Beatles song.

I dun believe you. I think that was a Yoko song :beatnik:
