Olivia, Olivia, it's raining outside
The city is drenched, there's a moon out tonight
There's a break in the clouds, just under the stars
We wanna go out and watch from afar

We couldn't care when and stepped in the mud
It makes no sense but you misunderstood
The city is in ruins, but there's a flower in the crack of the streets

Olivia, Olivia, I'll give you my best
Safe in my arms, I'll lay you to rest
You can borrow my coat, you wear the dress
Olivia, Olivia, come follow me home

    General CommentMany Green Day songs are about Billie-Joe's exes of girls he's met, so Olivia strikes me as potentially a song in the same vein.

    General CommentI really love this song, it makes me wonder who Olivia is and if she does deserve a song like this.
