Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....

I'm just gonna go out on a limb and leave the forum. This is what having a baby does to my brain.

Lemmings has always had my favourite lyrics, in particular I love the line "I know it's for the best but sometimes I wonder will I ever have friends like you again?"

I also love in Here's Your Letter "I'm talking to the ceiling, my life just lost all meaning, do you still feel the same way?"

A few of mine have been listed already but this one is up there for me:

"When I was young
The world it was smaller
The cities were vast
The buildings were taller
I felt really strong
My parents seemed stronger
"

It was perfect for a time in my life when I was becoming an adult fast with real responsibilities, and Blink had matured with me.

I'd follow this up with the second half of the verse, which I like even more.

But life has a way it showers with greatness
Then takes it away, those pieces that made us
Then teaches you things you'd never imagine
We all get the same, the memories, the burdens
The pictures we made, they still form a pattern
They cautiously say "does it all matter?"

Tom and Mark both write such great lyrics sometimes.

Damn I forgot how great Lemmings' lyrics were. I haven't listened to it in awhile, still hits you right in the gut.

For as much as people say they're a dick joke band they've had so many deep songs, when you take the music away and read the lyrics they tell a completely different story.

I'd even throw in the chorus

"It's the worst damn day, of my life

I made a mess today

But I'm alright"

 

Simple but effective and relatable.

Not exactly Blink, but some lines from Chapter XIII, hell the whole song really, but these especially:

"And we'll both take our revenge
But we still won't feel any better"

 

So simple yet so honest.

One thing that Dogs Eating Dogs EP improved on IMO is the lyrics. The lyrics of every song are very good. It's a contrast to Neighborhoods where some of the lyrics were a bit iffy, mainly the Tom songs.

Can we include +44 in this? They've got some fucking killer lyrics.

If we’re going +44 lyrics then without a doubt Lillian and Little Death. +44 was peak Hoppus. I’m glad this has become a little appreciation thread.

And if you're feeling scared
Remember the time we shared
You know it meant everything (everything)
You know that it meant everything to me

You know that it meant everything to me
