  • Sometimes I wonder where our lives go
    They question who we used to be
    Sometimes I feel like I'm the oxygen between
    The cigarette and gasoline

    I can't sleep 'cause what if I dream
    Of going back to San Diego
    We bought a one way ticket
    So we could go see the Cure
    And listen to our favorite songs in the parking lot
    And think of every person I ever lost in San Diego (to San Diego)
    Can't go back to San Diego (can't go back to San Diego)

    Abandoned houses with the lights on (oh, oh, oh)
    Late at night I call your name (oh, oh, oh, oh)
    Abandoned love songs smashed across the hardwood floors
    I read the sadness on your face

    I can't sleep 'cause what if I dream
    Of going back to San Diego
    We bought a one way ticket
    So we could go see the Cure
    And listen to our favorite songs in the parking lot
    And think of every person I ever lost in San Diego (to San Diego)
    Can't go back to San Diego (can't go back to San Diego)

    I never needed to hear
    All of the pain and the fear
    Your secrets filled up my ears
    Like the ocean blue
    I never wanted to know
    How deep these cuts on you go
    And like a river they flow
    To the ocean blue

    Going back to San Diego
    We bought a one way ticket
    So we could go see the Cure
    And listen to our favorite songs in the parking lot
    And think of every person I ever lost at San Diego (San Diego) (to San Diego)
    Can't go back to San Diego (San Diego) (can't go back to San Diego) Writer/s: John William Feldmann, Mark Hoppus, Matthew Thomas Skiba, Patrick Martin Stumph, Travis L. Barker
