"First Date" as written by Tom De Longe, Mark Hoppus and Travis L Barker....
In the car I just can't wait
To pick you up on our very first date
Is it cool if I hold your hand?
Is it wrong if I think it's lame to dance?
Do you like my stupid hair?
Would you guess that I didn't know what to wear?
I'm just scared of what you think
You make me nervous so I really can't eat

Let's go
Don't wait
This nights almost over
Honest, let's make
This night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever

When you smile, I melt inside
I'm not worthy for a minute of your time
I really wish it was only me and you
I'm jealous of everybody in the room
Please don't look at me with those eyes
Please don't hint that you're capable of lies
I dread the thought of our very first kiss
A target that I'm probably gonna miss

Let's go
Don't wait
This nights almost over
Honest, let's make
This may last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever

Let's go
Don't wait
This nights almost over
Honest, let's make
This may last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever
Forever and ever
Let's make this night last forever

    General CommentIt's time that you people start liking music for what it is... I wear old-navy clothes, I wear lugs boots... I listen to rap and I also play guitar... I don't skate but I like alot of punk and EMO... so who cares... music isnt about how the artist dress, it's about the meanings of the songs... it doesn't matter how they sing, it matters what they sing about... why does blink 182 have to be all punk and if they make one song thats not they are suddenly posers???

    General CommentBlink 182 are entertainers. They entertain. They may not entertain you in the way you would like to be entertained. They sing the music they want, and other bands sing the music they want. No ones forcing you to listen to it. Sometimes it can be annoying when u like a song, but its ruined by those "teeny-boppers." Its not that music is better or worse than other music, its just different. Some people may not like it, some people do. Whatever floats ur boat.

    General Commentactually, I went to this page, not to trash Blink or this particular song, but because I actually like it and the band.

    Their lyrics are relatable and honest. Whether you like it or not, everyone can relate to a song or two. They aren't always funny and immature, either. They have meaningful, serious music. It doens't matter if their considered sell-outs, because they're popular--they're a great band.

    General CommentGreat first date anticipation song and played with some other greats it makes for the perfect week: She's Only 18 by RHCP; This Charming Man by TS; and Hot for Teacher by Van Halen. Mark that yearly calendar 'cause the school semester has ended and the music's just getting started! It's time to P*A*R*T*Y ~!! Let's do it again after next semester~!! WooT WooT. Yawn. Boo.

    General CommentGreat song. Good band. It epitomizes the feelings one has before a first date....anticipation, excitement, nerverousness (but a good kind). Just dumped my first "date" (relationship) since my divorce and tonight is a first date with someone new, although we met months ago and already hit it off well. Got the new shirt; the new girly undies (just in case;)....margaritas do have that affect on some of us; and a belly filled with butterflies! I've been listening to this track via Youtube and just love how perfectly it fits the mood.

    General CommentThis is a really good song. I love blink but i'm not affraid to admit that some of their songs aren't punk, who cares if they aren't punk, who cares if their sell outs, who cares if there popular. Its the people who say there shit are just jealous that there shitty fav band like nofx.. etc. didn't make it big time. You people who say their crap are just jealous that their heaps better and more popular then your skany fav bands.
