"Everytime I Look for You" as written by and Tom/hoppus De Longe....
I never found out why you left him
But this answer begs that question
Too blind to see tomorrow
Too broke to beg or borrow
Young and stupid
Left wide open
Hearts are wasted
Lives are broken

One more point of contention
I need some intervention
Approached with vague intentions
Betray my short attention
Span the distance
Bridge the border
Beg forgiveness
Round the corner

Everytime I look for you the sun goes down
And I stumble when this whole thing runs aground
I left another message, you are never around
But everytime I look for you the sun goes down once more
Will the last one out please shut the door

More time apart will give you
A few more months to argue
Is this too much to live through?
It always seemed to far to
Drive the point home
Send more letters
Pray tomorrow
Ends up better

Everytime I look for you the sun goes down
And I stumble when this whole thing runs aground
I left another message, you are never around
But everytime I look for you the sun goes down once more
Will the last one out please shut the door

I never did do anything that she asked
I never let what happened stay in the past
I never did quite understand what she meant
In spite of everything
In spite of everything

Everytime I look for you the sun goes down
And I stumble when this whole thing runs aground
I left another message, you are never around
But everytime I look for you the sun goes down
And I stumble when this whole thing runs aground
I left another message, you are never around
But everytime I look for you the sun goes down

    General Commentfor me, this song has a lot of symbolism. the sun represents a girl's availibility, and when it's up, she is single. but he doesn't really seem to notice or care when the sun is "up". but when the sun goes "down", or she starts to see someone, he wants to get with her. this happens a few times, and he realizes that he never goes after her until he can't have her. that's just what i got from it. listen to the movielife

    General CommentThe meaning of this is pretty much: Everytime he went to look or find or talk to this girl she was no where to be found.
