"Don't" as written by and Mark Landon....
There was a time long ago
But it seemed like yesterday
When all I wanted was you

And now you make a segway
As you turn your face away
And I know your words aren't true

And I don't want your lies
And I don't think that I'm
Better than you inside

And you can take off your disguise
'Cause I can see the truth that's hidden
Behind your eyes

And all those words that you don't say
Just mean less and less each day
You can't make me shed a tear

I think about tomorrow
Another day of sorrow
But I don't think that I'll be here

    General Commentthis is one of those songs that blink writes that can take this huge feeling and wrap it up into a couple of line ("and all those words you dont say just mean less and less each day, you cant make me shed a tear"). this song really help me through a hard time and is to this day, one of my favorite songs.

    General CommentWow. Such a great Blink song. Just too much goes into this song for me, too much to write about. Great song and lyrics.

    General Commentwhen it comes to writing songs that perfectly fit feelings...blink 182 is the best...i know a lot of people criticize blink for turnin to a more pop-punk sound...but they still write some of the best lyrics out there...i challenge some of these people to write better...this song is an example of blink writing at its best...i cant believe only 3 people have posted for this song...

    General CommentI haven't actually heard this song yet, but the lyrics are great. You can't beat a good blink lyric. Especially:

    "And all those words that you don't say
    just mean less and less each day
    you can't make me shed a tear"

    General Comment"And you can take off your disguise
    Cause I can see the truth that's hidden
    Behind your eyes "

    The person is hiding something and the other person (their gf/bf) can see it but still doesn't know what it is.

    "And all those words that you don't say
    just mean less and less each day
    you can't make me shed a tear ..."

    The words you don't say = the thing the person is hiding that will eventually make them grow apart or separate (they mean less and less each day)
