"In Too Deep" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Nori....
The faster we're falling,
We're stopping and stalling
We're running in circles again
Just as things we're looking up
You said it wasn't good enough
But still we're trying one more time

Maybe we're just trying to hard
When really it's closer than it is too far

Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Instead of going under

Seems like each time
I'm with you I loose my mind
Because I'm bending over backwards to relate
It's one thing to complain
But when you're driving me insane
Well then I think it's time that we took a break

Maybe we're just trying to hard
When really it's closer than it is too far

Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Instead of going under
Instead of going under
Instead of going under

I can't sit back and wonder why
It took so long for this to die
And I hate it when you fake it
You can't hide it you might as well embrace it
So believe me it's not easy
It seems that something's telling me

Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
Instead of going under

Instead of going under again
Instead of going under
Instead of going under again
Instead of going under again
Instead of going under again

    General Commentit's a song about relationships...they've been together for a long time so they don't want to leave each other even though they know that they've grown apart

    General Comment"I love the video for this song...it's really cute! A lotta ppl make fun of me cuz i love Sum 41 and i'm considered a "prep" or whatever, but oh well. Oh ya... and I think Deryck's really cute. "

    It's fucking people like you that ruin punk for the rest of us. you only like a band because they are cute or you saw their music video on fucking gay MTV. do you ever pay attention to the music or do you just buy all the front row tickets in the off chance that the band might touch you? get a fucking life.

    General Comment.... what the hell, britrulz? What the fuck does Britney Spears have to do with this? Britney SUCKS by the way...

    Anyways...
    This song's about miscommunication in a relationship, being confused, over-thinking it, and trying to move on..

    General CommentI know punk music IS for everyone but i think that sometimes punks DO get pissed cos teenyboppers begin liking their music, and one of the reasons are 'they're cute!' and shit like that. It IS annoying, but I really don't care...it does annoy me to see poser teenies liking gc, blink or sum 41 together with nsync.

    this song kicks ass, btw.

    General Commentand to add, it also pisses me off when i like a band for a long time, their single comes out, they play it on MTV, and everyone all of a sudden loves the band, but thats the only song they know.
    that is all. :)

    General Commentnot to sound like an asshole but 'blonde cheerleaders' are usually the reason some bands like nfg, gc write those sad songs...sum41 isnt really punk rock either...if you want punk rock..listen to bad religion, nofx, the misfits, ect...
