"Cliff Diving" as written by and Travis L/hoppus Barker....
Hey silly girl I think I got a thing for you
From late nights spent driving in this stolen car
The years we wasted living in this desert town haven't broken us
So far

Hot afternoons we climbed onto the neighbor's house
Breathed deep and jumped into a waiting sky
Our bare feet were framed on the horizon
I felt the future in your eyes

It was the promise of summer
We sealed it with a kiss
This time I'll do things proper
How did it get to this?

Dear you tonight let's get ahead of ourselves
Because now I barely can remember
Yesterday stretched on for so long
Tomorrow feels like forever

My God you know how much I needed this
These days are filled with such disaster
Sometimes I think that life will never be the same
Sometimes I think that's the answer

And she said
Here comes the promise of summer
Let's seal it with a kiss
This time I'll do things proper
How did we get to this?

    General CommentI think it's about being in a relationship in the previous Summer, or just previously, and When they broke up it really hurt him, but now he is in a new relationship this summer cause hence: "here comes the promise of summer" and "I see the future in your eyes" and "I really needed this"
    Really reminds me of what I'm experiencing! :]

    General Comment"Dear You Tonight Let's Get Ahead of Ourselves"

    Brilliant, this is the most "Blinkish" song on the album in my opinion. It's awesome, I just wish it came out during the summer... definite summer song.

    General CommentGood song, IMO one of the weaker ones on the album, but the band seems to like it a lot. Mark said it's about how he and his friends would jump from a friend's roof into the pool and call it cliff diving. To me, it's just about jumping into something new in order to just clear your head and get through whatever has happened to you (the blink breakup).
