I suppose we got lost in Brooklyn
There's a poster on my wall
With a picture that says you're missing
My friends say I should rip it apart
Thought I saw you at the bodega
Thought I heard your voice at the bar
Time is slipping out through my fingers
I'm wishing on a burned out star

They say forgive and forget
As long as I live I let
These feelings pound in my chest
Maybe I am better off dead

The last time that I saw her
She was standing on the edge
All my good time been a long time
Tell me how could I forget
She had questions in her eyes
Oh, I should have realized
That it was over
Yeah, it was over
The last time that I saw her

Thinking back to times in Manhattan
And that SoHo gallery
Saw the sights and your favorite paintings
You were as priceless as can be
Now I'm looking back at the city
The one that they say never sleeps
How things get so dark and shitty
Sunrise always gives us the creeps

They say forgive and forget
As long as I live I let
These feelings pound in my chest
Maybe I am better off dead

The last time that I saw her
She was standing on the edge
All my good time been a long time
Tell me how could I forget
She had questions in her eyes
Oh, I should have realized
That it was over
Yeah, it was over
The last time that I saw her

Now you're just a stranger
And I feel like I let you down
Your friends say I'm a failure
And I could never prove 'em wrong
So call me when you're lonely
And maybe we can work it out
Fall back in the routines
Like nights I still dream about

Last time that I saw her
The last time that I saw her
Yeah

The last time that I saw her
She was standing on the edge
But it was over
Yeah, it was over
The last time that I saw her

    General CommentI have felt this and still feel this about one of my friends who keeps taking her boyfriend back after he constantly hurts her. He's a dick and treats her like she's a stupid whore.

    General Commenti can really relate this to my friend, her boyfriend screws with her mind and treats her like crap, and is only there for sexual reasons.. but she doesnt understand.. she thinks shes in love with him. and she never listens to me. every word of this song.. i really like it..

    General CommentFirst of all, I want to make it clear that blink is NOT in it for the money. When you strive for a career in music, the money comes along with it, thats part of the package if you will. Its not just like, "oh, well I wanna be rich so Im gonna go be a rock star now". If you really are talented and like music enough to do that, go ahead and do it, but dont do it just for the money. Money comes WITH it, thats not the main purpose blink is in the music industry.

    General Commentlogic.... hehe dont worry, i was like, wtf is emo? when i first came to this site yestaday but i found out it means like, emotional kinda related music. that kinda thing. and also, please kinda fuck off if you dont like blink, why the hell are you here? anyways bak to the song -
    Why leave when you claim it is love?
    But why stay when you're not the only one?
    i think its just about the chick who is fully into this guy who treats her so badly..... and i think she realises that but she just doesnt wanna leave him

    General Comment1. i luv this song so much. guy likes gurl, girl likes dickhead but doesnt c that hes like that. guy tries hard to make her see but it dunt work. so sad so sad

    2. the "she's better of sleepin on the floor" means that even if the guy treats her like shit, shes startin to move away from him.

    3. if n e body dusnt no wut emo is check out this site its amazing: fourfa.com

    4. sweetxwhitexlies, jus because u cant read the lyrics or u dont have the brain compasity to analyze them dusnt mean they suck, it means u do

Blink ROCKS!!!
