"When Your Heart Stops Beating" as written by Mark Hoppus and Travis L. Barker....
Turn it up, I never wanna go home
I only wanna be part of your breakdown
She got caught by the four on the floor
It picked her up, and she'll never get let down
And now I can't stop thinkin' about it
All you people at the top don't know nothin' about it
We don't give a fuck what the price is
So just leave us to our own devices, and we'll leave you alone

I'll be there when your heart stops beating
I'll be there when your last breath's taken away
In the dark, when there's no one listening
In the times when we both get carried away

When we both get carried away

She says it all without a thought in her head
She says it all as she's pressed up against me
A little something just to take off the edge
A little more, and I'll fall off the planet entirely

I'll be there when your heart stops beating
I'll be there when your last breath's taken away
In the dark, when there's no one listening
In the times when we both get carried away

When we both get carried away

I'll be there when your heart stops beating
I'll be there when your last breath's taken away
In the dark, when there's no one listening
In the times when we both get carried away

When we both get carried away
When we both get carried away
(I'll be there when your heart stops beating)
When we both get carried away
(In the dark, when there's no one listening)
When we both get carried away

    General Commenti agree, in the sense that it has a metaphorical meaning. i think it's meant to look like it's about a girl but in reality this song is about the Blink break up and Tom. Mark&Travis are saying that even though Tom and them have broken up and gotten into many fights, they'll still be there for him no matter what.

    General CommentOnce again I have to say that this song dissapointed me at first. However, I've since listened to it about 4,000 times and I have to say that it truly is awesome.

    General Commenti had to listen to this song a few times but wow i love this song. i think it's about a moment (good or bad) when your heart stops beating or skips a beat.
