"The Rest Of My Life" as written by Mark Hoppus, Vincent Phillip Fiorello, Christopher D. Demakes and Peter John Wasilewski....
I fell asleep last Saturday
Underneath polluted skies
I walked alone in those Jersey nights
And I
Saw the board walk start to fall
The empty ness starts to drown
The quiet corners of this town tonight

Late last night I made my plans
It was the only thing I felt I could do
Said goodbye to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell you the truth

It's gonna kill me the rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face
All of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life

This is my all time low
Somehow it feels so familiar
Somehow it seems so familiar
I fell like letting go
And every second that goes by
I'm screaming out for second tries

Said goodbye to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell you the truth

It's gonna kill me the rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face
All of my past mistakes
I've got to live with them the rest of my life

This is the mess I've made
These are the words I can't erase
This is my life support
Shutting down
For the final time
And it swings like a blade?
And kills me for the rest of my life

If you won't forgive me the rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face
All of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life

It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life

    General CommentQuality song, was co-written by Mark Hoppus. So might be about the break up of Blink and the breakdown of his friendship with Tom, but I doubt it.

    General Commentmark hoppus helped write this? no wonder this song reminds me of adam's song. i think the meaning is about a guy who's been living inthe smae place all his life and he wants to get away and start over, but he's feeling sad becuase he has to leave behind everyone he knew.

    General CommentThis song and it's lyrics have inspired a story I'm currently writing, entitiled "The Rest of our lives." Just about typical teenage life and having to grow up, loosing your immaturity.
    To me, this song explains how difficult something can be to say if it's not said straight away, and how not saying it can hurt so much...

    General CommentVery catchy song. Should get Less Than Jake the additional radio and TV exposure that they deserve.

    I love the music video for this song which portrays how childish grown-ups can act.

    General CommentThis song is the biggest departure from what Less Than Jake has ever done before but I love the song. It's real radio friendly. I hope this song finally gets them a platninum album. They deserve it.

    I think the song is about burning bridges - knowing you cannot EVER rebuild that bridge - but still wanting that person to know that you are truthfully and honestly apologetic and remorseful.

    General Commentthis isn't typical less than jake, but it is 100% less than jake. i love this band, and this just shows that they make amazing slow songs...this new album is going to be amazing, just as i'd expect from this band...
    because, i know that every single one of us, though we may not be feeling it now, has felt like this at some point.

    General CommentWOW, cannot believe no one has commented yet. This song is very catchy and poppy for LTJ, but its great nontheless. Being from Jersey i love these lines:
    "I walked alone in those Jersey nights
    And I
    Saw the board walk start to fall "

    General CommentHeh delvec19 has said it. Great song nonetheless, I'm not quite sure what it's about, but this is my interpretation. I think it's to do with someone who has made a mistake and messed stuff up, they've lost their best friend because of this. They want to apologise and want second chances, but this isn't the first time. And that they are contemplating suicide in some parts. "This is my life support shutting down for the final time." They want to end the pain. But I don't know really, it's probably wrong but just a try.
