Don't leave me all alone
Just drop me off at home
I'll be fine, it's not the first
Just like last time, but a little worse, and

She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
I said, "Don't let your future be destroyed by my past"
She said, "Don't let my door hit your ass"

One more chance, I'll try this time
I'll give you yours, I won't take mine
I'll listen up, pretend to care
Go on ahead, I'll meet you there, and

She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
I said, "Don't let your future be destroyed by my past"
She said, "Don't let my door hit your ass"

Let's try this one more time with feeling
One more time with feeling
One more time with feeling
One more time with feeling

She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
I said, "Don't let your future be destroyed by my past"
She said, "Don't let my door hit your ass"

Don't leave me all alone
Just drop me off at home
And I'll be fine

    this 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.

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

    when 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...

    I 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"

    "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)

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
