"Strings" as written by Scott Raynor, Tom De Longe and Mark Hoppus....
I would do anything and that's
What scares me so bad
Don't want to live my life alone
Don't want to go back
To what I had
Don't want to spend
My life without
All those special things
Don't want to walk around
Being tied to
Anyone else's

Strings, strings, strings, strings
I would do anything and that's
What scares me so bad
Don't want to live my life alone
Don't want to go back
To what I had

Don't want to spend
My life without
All those special things
Don't want to walk around
Being tied to
Anyone else's

Strings, strings, strings, strings
Strings, strings, strings, strings

    General Commenti dont think this song is about being independent. Its about the paradox of wanting to love someone yet wanting to be totally independent as well. So many of lifes special things are found in the strings.

    General CommentActually, no, he didn't. He said that it isn't about being independent.. its about the conflict between love and independence. Two completely different things.

    General CommentIt's about not letting your significant other control your life. And if they are, then you're not really a part of the relationship right? And if that's the case, you're better off not being there.

    General CommentI think ed is emo's got this one nailed. It's not just independence, because this part
    "Don't want to live my life alone
    Don't want to go back to what I had
    Don't want to spend my life without
    All those special things"

    It shows part of him wants to submit some independence to have a relationship.
