"Wendy Clear" as written by and Tom/hoppus De Longe....
Let's take the boat out on the bay
Forget your job for just one day
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

It might be inappropriate because
Either way our band gets dropped, oh yeah
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

But I'd play with fire to break the ice
And I'd play with a nuclear device
Is it something I'll regret?
Why do I want what I can't get?
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

The three-date theory is getting old
Everyone is getting left out in the cold
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

So I'll see you with another guy
Who pretends not to hear you when you cry, oh yeah
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

But I'd play with fire to break the ice
And I'd play with a nuclear device
Is it something I'll regret?
Why do I want what I can't get?
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

I'll be moving on, moving on
Moving on, and on and on
Moving on, moving on
Moving on and on and on

But I'd play with fire to break the ice
And I'd play with a nuclear device
Is it something I'll regret?
Why do I want what I can't get?
I wish it didn't have to be so bad
I wish it didn't have to be so bad
I wish it didn't have to be so bad
I wish it didn't have to be so bad

    General Commenta little while ago i broke up with my boyfriend, and right now she's with another guy, who i know doesn't love her and shes having doubts. and even though there were problems with us i know we still love each other and i wanna give us anotehr shot. so this song, right now, sums up how i feel, with the whole "So Ill see you with another guy Who pretends not to hear you when you cry" and "Is it something Ill regret? Why do I want what I cant get?". so that's what the song means to me right now.

    General CommentThis song is about how you wish it could work out with that girl or guy, but for some reason or another there is something in the way. After thinking about it you don't know what to do, or what is best. And you wish it could just all work out.

    General CommentThis song is awsome, I really listen to alot of there songs when im low its really really good "I wish it didnt have to be so bad" i think this song is all about seeing this girl you really liked with someone else and you know you could have been the best person to make her happy even if she could never see it *sigh* jus like this girl i am in love with "Ill be moving on" clearly shows that he is trying to get over it
