"Wasting Time" as written by Tom De Longe, Scott Raynor and Mark Hoppus....
I'm wasting time
Thinking about a girl
And stealing her away
From her world
She and I would run away
I think of all the things that I'd say
We'd talk about important things
And I picture it in my dreams
She'd teach me
About modern art
And I'd show her
It's OK to fart and

Maybe I'd impress her
By being in a band and
Maybe if I act real tough
She'd let me hold her hand and
Maybe I'll win her heart
By writing this song about her

Sometimes I sit at home and
Wonder if she's sitting at home
Thinking of me and
Wondering if I'm
Sitting at home,
Thinking about her
Or am I just wasting my time

Remembering how
She laughed at Kinko's
When I made fun of that guy
Remembering the look
She gave me
When I told her that
I used to fly

I really want to ask her out
But my ego could never take it
And even if I got the balls
You know that the Cougar
Would never make it

And in my town
You can't drive naked

And maybe I'd impress her
By being in a band and
Maybe if I act real tough
She'd let me hold her hand and
Maybe I'll win her heart
By writing this song about her

Sometimes I sit at home and
Wonder if she's sitting at home
Thinking of me and
Wondering if I'm
Sitting at home,
Thinking about her
Or am I just wasting my time
Am I just wasting my time
Wasting my time
Thinking about a girl

    General Commentmy favorite song by them. when i was 15, this was the only album i listened to over and over and over again(other than sunny day...ahhh, summer of '94...). i grew up feeling their emo-ish lyrics, one of the best punk cds ever. if you flame me, i will have to walk through the tunnels of internet and biotch slap your @ss. have a nice day. :)

    General Commentalpha5099,
    im probably mistaken but i think "kinko's"
    is a fast food chain in america sorta like mcdonalds,
    "when i told her that i used to fry", i think is a reference to working the fryer (to cook french fries) at "kinko's", which is regarded as a really bad job and you get minimum wage.

    General Commentthis song rocks... every time i hear this song, it reminds me of my ex-girlfriend who i still love. when i first got chesire cat back in like 95, i would listen to it over and over, and then go skating. this was my favorite song off the album, cause i was thinking of her, and wondering if she was sitting at home thinking of me! blink rocks, and they still rock.

    General CommentWasting Time is a great song. I think it's one that most teenagers or I guess anyone can relate to. Everyone has had that time when they were sitting around thinking about someone that they liked and though, hey maybe she/he is thinking about me right now. The song talks about all the things that him and his girl could learn from eachother and the fun they could have.
