  • I text a postcard, sent to you
    Did it go through?
    Sending all my love to you
    You are the moonlight of my life every night
    Giving all my love to you
    My beating heart belongs to you
    I walked for miles 'til I found you
    I'm here to honor you
    If I lose everything in the fire
    I'm sending all my love to you

    With every breath that I am worth
    Here on Earth
    I'm sending all my love to you
    So if you dare to second guess
    You can rest assure
    That all my love's for you

    My beating heart belongs to you
    I walked for miles 'til l found you
    I'm here to honor you
    If I lose everything in the fire
    I'm sending all my love to you

    My beating heart belongs to you
    I walked for miles 'til I found you
    I'm here to honor you
    If I lose everything in the fire

  • Phil from Minneapolis,mnI was going through a rough patch in my life. Nothing was going right, I had no clue what was wrong with me. I met this girl Sarah, she was there for me as I went through the dark times. We were head over heels for each other. The problem I have very bad anxiety and kept pushing her away. I chased her away my dark times got darker. I was watching the broadway idiot documentary heard this song and crushes me everytime I hearing it. I sat down and wrote and wrote a short film about us. Everyone that has read it while listening to this song have been brought to their knees. This song and script is everything I have ever wanted to say to her.
    She has moved on married with a kid. She will forever be the one. If I lose everything in the fire did I ever make it through? Constantly goes through my mind.
  • Hayes from Newark, OhUsed to be me and her song. *sigh* I'd do almost anything to be with her again. I mean sure, she cheated, but hey, so did I.
  • Amber from Indianapolis, Inhes got such an amazing voice :] some ppl would think that he sucks at singing this kinda stuff but what they dont think about is 1)nothing will ever sound like the album version (only exception to that is WMUWSE. its just the right range for him to sound like the album)and 2)thats a really difficult song for guys to sing. he really didnt have to make it falsetto but he wanted to push his limits. you can really tell that hes not ment to sing falsetto so that just really had to be a hard song to sing for him. 21 guns is the same way. i nvr thought of it how i put it when i first heard them sing it on the AMA's i believe. but they have so much talent and they want to push their boundries and they make it work, so its a win-win for us :]
  • Emily from Dudley, United Kingdomlove this song :)
  • Alan from The Meadow Of Rainbows, United KingdomThis song sorta reminds me of "Warmness on the Soul" by Avenged Sevenfold. Except without the epic guitar solo :(
  • Jakob from Cedar Rapids, IaOne of my favporite songs by Green Day.
  • Krista from Carbondale, PaOne of my favorite songs off the new album and DEF. one of the most heart felt songs ever from Green Day! Genius!
  • Dan Smit from Grand Rapids, MiI love this song. This is my favorite song on their new album, I thought their new album was ok until I heard this song, then I started to like it better. I really wasn't expecting all the piano songs, but was really glad they were in there, I love piano. I love the chord progression is both kind of unusual and common at the same time, if you know what I mean.
  • Michael from Tucson, AzLove this song.
  • Peter from North Bend, WaHands down best love song ever written, well by Green Day at least:) Redundant is also another good one...
  • Joey from Miami, FlI really enjoyed listening to this song when I got the record because it represents the way I've been feeling about a girl lately. This is probably the softest song on the record and another one of the few songs that show Green Day's soft side. Wouldn't be suprised if I hear this song in high school proms to slow dance to with ur partner lol.
