Hurley track listing
"Ruling Me"

"Trainwrecks" is the third track on Hurley.



"Trainwrecks" was the first song Rivers Cuomo wrote following an incident in which his tour bus crashed during Weezer's Raditude Tour in December 2009,[1] in which Cuomo sustained five cracked ribs and internal bleeding.[2] Cuomo co-wrote the song with songwriter Desmond Child, who also performed piano on the song. According to Cuomo (via the website Riverchat), Child likened Cuomo to the character of Puck from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and that "Trainwrecks" was written with Cuomo in mind as Puck.[3][4]




We sleep all day and rock the night
We just get up to start another fight
We kiss and then we bite
We are trainwrecks

You don't keep house and I'm a slob
You're freakin' out cause I can't keep a job
We don't update our blogs
We are trainwrecks

People love to tell us what to do
That's just ‘cause they're jealous of me and you

We're diggin' through the couch for cash
We're takin' cabs ‘cause both our cars are trashed
But we're still kickin' ass
We are trainwrecks, trainwrecks,
we're still kickin' ass
We are trainwrecks

We think it's uncool to be on time
Moochin' off our friends is not a Federal crime

Someday we'll cut our critics down to size
And crash a Diddy party in disguise
We fall but then we rise
We are trainwrecks
That's the story of our lives
We are trainwrecks, trainwrecks

That's the story of our lives
We are trainwrecks
