Late out the door, grab my clothes off the floor,
Backpack and books cause school is a chore
Coming straight out the block, punk rock ain't no shock,
Blue hair everywhere cause we got the stock
Slide by all the narcs, as the late alarm barks,
Take a nap in the class on a film about sharks
Try to make my way through, but it's all I can do,
Cause I keep coming back and all I think about is you

Didn't want to go, didn't want to stay, didn't want to lie by my side
I don't really care cause I'll still be there swallowing my pride
Someday I'm going to be there

Step out in the hall, with the girls dressed like dolls,
And the burn-outs are baked as they step out the stalls
See the games that they play, cause they practice all day,
And the more that I see the less I have to say but
It's a quarter to ten, by your locker again,
Cause I know you'll be coming round the corner with your friend
Try to make my way through, but it's all I can do,
Cause I keep coming back and all I think about is you

Listen when I say
Today is the day
And I'm on my way

See you when you're wandering by
And you still catch my eye
Blow my mind
Cause my face you won't recognize

I know that it's crazy, how you seem to phase me,
When nothing else matters but that all escapes me
This is a new trip, got to get a better grip,
A day in the life and you know I'm going to take it
And then you turn and walk away, before I have a chance to say,
I know that you can make this all okay
Try to make my way through, but it's all I can do,
Cause I keep coming back and all I think about is you

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs, by any artist, i must love it so much its been on my profile for almost a year without wanting to change it. i think it can be a feeling about a new love, an old love, or anything it applies to everything.

    General CommentThis song isn't just some romantic bullshit. Its about some highschooler who likes someone so much that even thpough they keep getting rejected they still can't abandon those feelings. No one really seems to see the pain that lies behind the words in this song. I think when this song feels like the soundtrack to your life, only then do you stop seeing it as a cute romantic song.

    General CommentI honestly don't care what the song is about. It's got such a wonderful, youthful exhuberance to it I can't help but love it. It's so rare to see a band with this kind of euphoric abandon these days...

    General Commenti can clearly explain this, since i've been through it before.

    it's about how you desire someone very bad, but how the person is oblivious of your existence. when i was a freshman in high school, there was this one boy named Luke who i madly had a crush on. the problem was, i was just another face in the crowd to him. i would stand by his locker on lunch breaks in hopes to be able to maybe say "hi" to him, but i would always end up just watching him but his books in his locker out of intimidation, until he walked away with his friends. i knew he wasn't interested in me, so i kept swallowing my pride and not asking him out just so i could avoid rejection and keep my own pride. i always wished that someday, just someday, i would be there in his life. like ALYMAC says, it's not as cute of a love song as it may sound. it's rather ironically sad.

    but hey, it's still my fave ZH song of all time. fo sho.
