"Lifeline" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
With an urgent, careful stare,
I see panic in those eyes.
I see you lying there,
Thinking this was the last time

If you hear a distant sound,
And some footsteps by your side.
When the world comes crashing down.
I will find you if you hide.

If you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

We all make mistakes.
And turn it out.
If you want it, I want to.
We all make mistakes.
Here is a lifeline
If you want one too.

There's a field near the dream.

I watched it grow with widest eyes.
I watched us all reach out and read.
Feel the strength as we touched the sky.

If you hear a distant sound.
And some footsteps by your side.
If you feel like coming round.
I will take you for a ride.

If you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

We all make mistakes.
And turn it out.
If you want it, I want to.
We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want I want too.

[Repeat: x8]
If you want I want too.

    General CommentDoes no one else appreciate the stretch Tom is making with his voice? He's really trying to hit some new notes in this song and i like it. the way he sings that second "wish" and the way he almost whispers "lifeline" are amazing little touches that really make this song.

    General Commentits a nice song.
    i totally get it now.
    about him being there for someone, and no matter what, hell be there for them. And when they want to change thier mind from before, hell accept it, hence 'we all make mistakes, heres your lifeline'
    i like sirenss.

    General CommentAnother amazing new song.. Holy shit, this album is going to be better than Whisper.. it seems he fixed what was wrong with that album (repetition mostly) and mixed it with a box car sound... truly unreal.

    General Commentin an attempt to not relate every song tom writes to blink or mark or anything...

    i think this song is about two people, one who is angry at the other and doesnt want to have anything to do with him, while the other is telling him that he will always be there for them, by their side when they need him.

    In the prechorus and chorus i think he's telling the person that if he wants to work it out then he's willing to and that everyone makes mistakes and you need to work it out and forgive.

    seems kinda like the problem between mark and tom doesnt it?....oh...i wasnt supposed to relate it :rollseyes:

    nonetheless still an absolutly amazing song

    General Commentwow. one of the best new songs off the new album.
    it's kind of a reminescent blend of distraction and a little's enough. ha

    and to me i think this songs a lot about second chances. its about giving people another chance even when they don't think they deserve it.
