"Trainwrecks" is one of Dru's earliest and most honest songwriting efforts. Composed at the tender age of 15 at the wake of a teenage breakup, the sleepless protagonist finds himself fixated on the past, "reliving all the train wrecks in my mind." Not unlike Ray Charles' "Drown In My Own Tears," or even Jeff Buckley's most soul baring moments, Dru's wash of guitars, violins and basses sweep over this grandiose ballad. 

lyrics

Pretty baby, why can't you sleep at night?
Is it because you find pleasure reliving
All the train wrecks in your mind

Lost back in time
All the memories of a different life remain

He's the polite gentleman, he keeps it all inside
But you don't see he's all the rage, all the train wrecks in his mind

Lost back in time
All the memories of a different life remain

Why won't you tell me? Is it someone you need?
Or is it just your own greed? Or is it just you or me?

Lost back in time
All the memories of a different life remain

Well I see you're down
Well I see you're down
Well I see you're down again
