  • 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 Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker

  • Ak from Somewhere, IrelandThis is my favourite song from the new album. It's full of passion and enthusiasm but there's also a lot of emotion in there and the lyrics are quite moving. Further proof that Blink-182 are amazing artists, capable of writing incredible songs.
