"Buses And Trains" as written by and James Roche....
Hey mum! Why didn't you tell me?
Why didn't you teach me a thing or two?
Did you just let me go out, into the world?
You never thought to share what you knew.

So I walked under a bus, I got hit by a train.
Keep falling in love, which is kinda the same.
I've sunk out at sea, crashed my car, gone insane.
And it felt so good, I want to do it again.

Hey mum! Why didn't you want me?
'Cause I found boys were something I should have known.
They're like chocolate cake, like cigarettes.
I know they're bad for me, but I just can't leave them alone.

[Chorus]

And I walked under a bus, I got hit by a train.
And it felt so good, I want to do it again.
I want to do it again, I want to do it again, hey hey!
Ooh, think I'm so good? Hey!

Hey mum! Since we're talking, what was it like when you were young?
Has the world changed, or is it still the same?
A man can kill, and still be the sweetest fun!

[Chorus: x2]

And I walked under a bus, I got hit by a train,
And it felt so good, I want to do it again.

    wellps, it's abt love obviously and she thinx tht tht was one of the things she shud definitely have bn taught abt wen she was young coz now that she's older, she finds it abig thing without ne experience. also, bcoz she's grown up, her mother and her hav become more distanced. so sad when tht happens.

    General CommentMy neighbor introduced me to this song, and I couldn't get it out of my head afterwards. At first, I thought the lyrics were a bit odd, but it really does make since.

    When you aren't prepared for the roller coaster ride of falling in and out of love, then you can get into some pretty painful situations.
    Your first heartbreak, will feel quite similar to being hit by a train, emotionally. I think many young ladies wish their moms would've ''warned'' them about how much they could get hurt in relationships, instead of focusing only on the idea of finding ''prince charming''.
