  • Where the hell did you come from, outer space or heaven above
    Short of breath my long-lost love
    I can't believe my eyes, are you for real?

    My life before was such a mess
    There's no use dwelling on the past
    My broken heart was in a cast
    Then you showed up and it began to heal

    'Cause you're the only thing that matters
    'Cause you're the only thing that's real
    'Cause you're the only thing I'll never let go
    'Cause you're the only thing I feel

    Someday
    You'll come back to me
    And I'll say
    Something bitterly

    And you'll go racing toward the kitchen
    Grab a knife, erase my vision
    Take my flatscreen television
    And my paintings by Marilyn Manson

    'Cause you're the only thing that matters
    'Cause you're the only thing that's real
    'Cause you're the only thing I'll never let go
    'Cause you're the only thing I feel

    'Cause you're the only thing that matters
    'Cause you're the only thing that's real
    'Cause you're the only thing I'll never let go
    'Cause you're the only thing I feel Writer/s: JOHN FELDMANN, MARK HOPPUS, MATTHEW SKIBA, TRAVIS BARKER
