BLINK 182
     
 


Yeah my girlfriend takes me home when I'm too drunk to drive
And she doesn't get all jealous when I hang out with the guys
She laughs at my dumb jokes when no one does
She brings me mexican food from sombrero just because

And my girlfriend likes ul and dhc
And she's so smart and independent
I dont think she needs me
Quite half as much as I know I need her
I wonder why there's not another guy that she'd prefer

And when I feel like giving up like my world is falling down
I show up at three a.m. she's still up watching vacation
And I see her pretty face it takes me away to a better place

And I know that everything's gonna be fine

Yeah my girlfriend takes collect calls from the road
And it doesn't seem to matter that I'm lacking in the bulge
She laughs at my dumb jokes when no one does
She brings me mexican food from sombrero just because

And when I feel like giving up like my world is falling down
I show up at three a.m. she's still up watching vacation
And I see her pretty face it takes me away to a better place

And I know that everything's gonna be fine


It's alright to tell me what you think about me
I won't try to argue or hold it against you
I know that you're leaving you must have your reasons
The season is calling your pictures are falling down

The steps that I retrace the sad look on your face
The timing and structure did you hear he fucked her
A day late a buck short I'm writing the report
On losing and failing when I move I'm flailing now

And It's happened once again I'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone and I've been here for too long
To face this on my own well I guess this is growing up

And maybe I'll see you at a movie sneak preview
You'll show up and walk by on the arm of that guy
And I'll smile and you'll wave we'll pretend it's okay
The charade it won't last when he's gone I wont come back

And it'll happen once again you'll turn to a friend
Someone that understands sees through the master plan
But everybody's gone and you've been there for too long
To face this on your own well I guess this is growing up


All the, small things
True care, truth brings
Iíll take, one lift
Your ride, best trip
Always, I know
Youíll be at my show
Watching, waiting, commiserating
Say it ainít so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na...
Late night, come home
Work sucks, I know
She left me roses by the stairs, surprises let me know she cares
Say it ainít so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na...
Say it ainít so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Keep your head still, Iíll be your thrill,
the night will go on, my little windmill
Say it ainít so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Keep your head still, Iíll be your thrill,
the night will go on, my little windmill


I took her out, it was a Friday night
I wore cologne to get the feeling right
We started makin' out and she took off my pants
But then, I turned on the TV
And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And are still more amused by TV shows
What the hell is ADD, my friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?
Then later on, on the drive home
I called her mom from a pay phone
I said I was the cops and your husband's in jail
This state looks down on sodomy
And that's about the time that bitch hung up on me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And are still more amused by prank phone calls
What the hell is call ID, my friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?
And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And you still act like you're in freshman year
What the hell is wrong with me, my friends say I should act my age
What's my age again?
That's about the time that she broke up with me (what's my age again?)
No one should take themselves so seriously
With many years ahead to fall in line
Why would you wish that on me, I'll never wanna act my age
What's my age again?
What's my age again?



I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known
I traced the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine, I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone
I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over I'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone
I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never set foot in my room again
You'll close it off, board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault
I never conquered, rarely came
But tomorrow holds such better days
Days when I can still feel alive
When I can't wait to get outside
The world is wide, the time goes by
The tour is over, I've survived
I can't wait till I get home
To pass the time in my room alone
