  • Push it out, fake a smile
    Avert disaster just in time
    I need a drink, 'cause in a while
    Worthless answers from friends of mine
    It's dumb to ask, cool to ignore
    Girls possess me but they're never mine
    I made my entrance, avoided hazards
    Checked my engine I fell behind
    I fell behind

    She makes me feel like it's raining outside
    And when the storm's gone, I'm all torn up inside
    I'm always nervous on days like this, like the prom
    I get too scared to move 'cause I'm a fuckin' boy

    Remember when I was in
    The grocery store, now's my time
    Lost the words, lost the nerve
    Lost the girl, left the line
    I would wish upon a star
    But that star, it doesn't shine
    So read my book with a boring ending
    A short story of a lonely guy
    Who fell behind

    She makes me feel like it's raining outside
    And when the storm's gone, I'm all torn up inside
    I'm always nervous on days like this, like the prom
    I get too scared to move 'cause I'm a fuckin' boy

    She makes me feel like it's raining outside
    And when the storm's gone, I'm all torn up inside
    I'm always nervous on days like this, like the prom
    I get too scared to move 'cause I'm still
    Just a stupid, worthless boy Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker
