"Obvious" as written by Thomas Delonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis L. Barker....
I saw you again
I think you used me again
Should we try this before we give up and move on
And pretend to restore what we have and hold on
At times like these
It's obvious
I saw you again
I know you fucked him again
Can you comfort yourself with a sense of revenge
Are you leaving me here with the taste of the end

At times like these
It's obvious
At times like these
It's obvious

I saw you again and again and again
There's some room to move on, to move on, to move on
And I saw you again and again and again
How do we fix this if we never have vision

I saw you again and again and again
There's some room to move on, to move on, to move on
And I saw you again and again and again
How do we fix this if we never have vision

I saw you again and again and again
There's some room to move on, to move on, to move on
And I saw you again and again and again
How do we fix this if we never have vision

I saw you again and again and again
There's some room to move on, to move on, to move on
And I saw you again and again and again
How do we fix this if we never have vision

    General CommentI love how it can connect to "I Miss You" in the sense that you still love the person and miss them even after what happened in "Obvious". That battle in your head over still getting over the girl (or boy) that broke your heart but still love. Can't look at "I Miss You" the same after knowing this song precedes it.

    General CommentI like this song. When I first heard it, it reminded me of my ex. I saw her again and I knew she fucked her new boyfriend again.. it was just ironic. :-P

    General CommentI didn't really like this song at first and its still not one of my favorites but I've grown to like it more, I love how the guys experimented with so many different styles of music, don't get me wrong, i loved their old sound but there wasn't much more they could do with it without creating songs with identical melodies as their older ones

    General CommentI love this song. I bet it'll sound even better live- gawd I MUST go to a blink-182 concert.... Man... I mean this song isn't played fast enough on the album... Anyway I love how it ends, with Tom screaming fast and furiously. A great second track, simple lyrics but powerful in execution.

    General Commenti really like this song. the lyrics are simple and the meaning of the song is easy to understand. but just because it's simple doesn't mean it's not any good. it's a real song that alot of us that were hurt and used can relate to.

    General Commentthis song is in a threeway tie for the best song on the album for me.

    lyrics are so raw...as well as the guitars/drum... especially that middle part when it pauses then kicks it up with some really nice guitar.

    but i have to agree this song could be played faster... wish they would do this as a single
