"After Midnight" as written by Mark Hoppus, Thomas Delonge and Travis L. Barker....
I can't get my feet up off the edge
I kinda like the little rush you get
When you're standing close to death
Like when you're driving me crazy

Hold on as we crash into the earth
A bit of pain will help us suffer when you're hurt
For real 'cause you were driving me crazy

Bite your lips, your word's a robbery
Do you grin inside, you're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kinda think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end is not too far away
Did you know, I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

I can't keep your voice out of my head
All I hear are the many echoes of
The darkest words you said
And it's driving me crazy

I can't find the best in all of this
But I'm always looking out for you
'Cause you're the one I miss
And it's driving me crazy

Bite your lips, your word's a robbery
Do you grin inside, you're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kinda think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away
Did you know, I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

    General Commenti really like this song, along with "up all night."

    what my take on this song is that it is about how you wanted someone to be yours, but they just being in the phase of "just friend", and they kinda give you hope like probably they'll accept you one day. but the thing is, you kinda know they are just messing around, laughing at you behind your back. this guy, he just knows that probably nothing will come out of what they are doing.

    Bite your lips, your word's a robbery
    Do you grin inside?
    You're killing me
    All along we talked of forever
    I kinda think that we won't get better
    It's the longest start, but the end is not too far away
    Did you know?
    I'm here to stay

    these lines show that the guy is being pessimistic but he still wanna stay and see if there's any luck between them.
    i know that my take on this song is really straightforward and literal regarding the lyrics. somehow i think things are better when they are simple. =)

    guys, i hope blink will stay longer around after this though i kinda hope that tom will still produce AVA record.
