  • In the car I just can't wait
    To pick you up on our very first date
    Is it cool if I hold your hand?
    Is it wrong if I think it's lame to dance?
    Do you like my stupid hair?
    Would you guess that I didn't know what to wear?
    I'm just scared of what you think
    You make me nervous so I really can't eat

    Let's go
    Don't wait
    This night's almost over
    Honest, let's make
    This night last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever

    When you smile, I melt inside
    I'm not worthy for a minute of your time
    I really wish it was only me and you
    I'm jealous of everybody in the room
    Please don't look at me with those eyes
    Please don't hint that you're capable of lies
    I dread the thought of our very first kiss
    A target that I'm probably gonna miss

    Let's go
    Don't wait
    This night's almost over
    Honest, let's make
    This night last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever

    Let's go
    Don't wait
    This night's almost over
    Honest, let's make
    This night last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever
    Forever and ever
    Let's make this last forever Writer/s: Travis Barker, Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus

  • Vanessa from Miami FlI love this song we can all relate to this song both guys n n girls we have all been there before and know what it feels like going on a first date finally meeting someone for the first time this song definitely sums up what we feel like going on our first date
  • John from San Diego, CaThe drum intro is legendary. Definitely playing this when I go to pick up my gf on our first date.
  • Scot from Largo, FlEverything about this is good.
  • Jess from Brisbane, AustraliaGirls feel that self-conscious every day; imagine how they feel on a first day. Fantastic song by the way.
  • Ben from Gosford, AustraliaThis song for me represents a low point in Blink's history. Actually, the whole album does. It seems like the album was largely written and sold on the premise that everybody listening to Blink is 16 years old and in an on again/ off again relationship with someone.
  • Kodi from Sydney, CanadaI love this song, I can totally relate to it too
  • Gray from Aurora , CoThis is an Awesome song describing the way some guys feel on a first day. It describes how he thinks hes not good enough for here and nervous on how he looks, hair, and what he thinks. Its a really good song.
  • Kevin from Quebec, Canadathis songs drumming made me want to start drumming thank god for you travis barker :)
