Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

In 1994 vormen Patrick Monahan, Jimmy Stafford en Scott Underwood in San Francisco de band Train. Na wat personele wisselingen voegen zich ook Johnny Colt en Brandon Bush zich bij de band. In 2001 wordt Drops Of Jupiter hun wereldwijde doorbraak. Het nummer bereikt in de Top 40 de derde plaats.

Jarenlang lijkt de groep het bij één hit in ons land te houden. Toch komt er bijna tien jaar later een meer dan succesvolle opvolger met Hey Soul Sister. De single staat zeven achtereenvolgende weken op nummer 1 en wordt hun grootste hit in ons land. Ook de opvolgers Shake Up Christmas en Drive By weten de top 10 te bereiken.

De drie singles van het album California 37, 50 Ways To Say Goodbye, Mermaid en Bruises (met Ashley Monroe), komen niet bij de beste 10 terecht.

In september van 2014 verschijnt het nieuwe album, Bulletproof Picasso, waarvan Angel In Blue Jeans als eerste de Top 40 bereikt. Later wordt ook de titeltrack van het album als single aangemerkt.
Eind 2015 maakt Train een compleet album met kerstnummers. Een cover van de klassieker van Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody, wordt als single aangemerkt.


Songtekst

My heart is paralyzed
My head was over sized
I'll take the high road like I should
You said it's meant to be
That it's not you, it's me
You're leaving now for my own good

That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say...

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died

My pride still feels the sting
You were my everything
Some day I'll find a love like yours (a love like yours)
She'll think I'm Superman
Not super minivan
How could you leave on Yom Kippur?

That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say...

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died (died, died)

I wanna live a thousand lives with you
I wanna be the one you're dying to
Love.... but you don't want to

That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say...
That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say...

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died
