James Arthur – Train Wreck 

 

Laying in the silence 
Waiting for the sirens 
Signs, any signs I'm alive still 
I don't wanna lose it 
I'm not getting through this 
Hey, should I pray? Should I pray 
To myself? To a God? 
To a saviour who can 


Unbreak the broken 
Unsay these spoken words 
Find hope in the hopeless 
Pull me out of the train wreck 
Unburn the ashes 
Unchain the reactions, I'm not ready to die, not yet 
Pull me out of the train wreck 
Pull me out, pull me out, pull me out 
Pull me out, pull me out 

 
Underneath our bad blood 
We still got a sanctum, home 
Still a home, still a home here 
It's not too late to build it back 
'Cause a one-in-a-million chance 
Is still a chance, still a chance 
And I would take those odds 

 
Unbreak the broken 
Unsay these spoken words 
Find hope in the hopeless 
Pull me out of the train wreck 
Unburn the ashes 
Unchain the reactions, I'm not ready to die, not yet 
Pull me out the train wreck 
Pull me out, pull me out, pull me out 
Pull me out, pull me out, pull me out 

 
You can say what you like 'cause see, I would die for you 
I, I'm down on my knees and I need you to be my God 
Be my help, be a savior who can 


Unbreak the broken 
Unsay these reckless words (find hope in the hopeless) 
Pull me out of the train wreck 
Unburn the ashes 
Unchain the reactions, I'm not ready to die, not yet 
Pull me out of the train wreck 
Pull me out, pull me out, pull me out 
Pull me out, pull me out, pull me out 
 

Interpretation of Train Wreck

In the song “Train Wreck”, the train wreck serves as a symbol of the narrator's desperation. He regrets that he has hurt other people with his words and deeds and would like to undo it. The narrator hopes his prayers will be answered and he can make amends for his wrongdoings. Since there is no hint in the song as to what exactly he regrets, it is not relevant. Rather, the focus in this song is on how much the narrator regrets his actions in the past. But just as you cannot undo a train accident, it is doubtful that the narrator's wish will come true.
