Seems like the song was written two weeks ago...  

I like it.  That's what you can say about Tom. He can make a catchy song. He also can make those feel-good songs. That's what I feel Blink has been missing the last 4 years. 

Figure we could do a little listen party or something.

If it is about the virus, then I'm curious about this part:

We‘re locked inside our beds,
but we Laugh at what is said,
remember how it all begins
A little smile from your friends

Is that part essentially saying, we're all quarantined now, and it started with many joking about it, laughing and smiling, but that's just how it begins.  Doesn't say how it ends, but it almost reads ominous, like, this is how it starts...

I understood it more like yeah we‘re all separated at the moment, but don‘t forget we can still (re-)connect through smiles, laughs, love and all that. Just the standard AVA uplifting message thing.

i really really don't mind the central guitar riff, but the lyrics are dreadful -- no surprise it's a real-time reaction to covid-19. some of the worst tom's ever released IMO, specifically "the world cried"... yuck! (this is no surprise... this is the man who wrote "i think i like today, i think it's good") lol. bad tune

love the dream walker but not much more of AVA, and these new songs ain't hittin me

Yeah, I've listen to this song four times and I'm already feeling kind of bored listening to it compared to the other two songs that Tom recently put out...

Still a decent song though since I enjoyed it enough the first time. Definitely not a skip, but not something I'm gonna rush back to listen to any time soon.

2/3 great songs so far is a good number (I still really like RG and K+T)

Hoping we get a full album soon, or at least some more information on that. Wonder if the will get delayed at all (cause of issues getting together) or if this lockdown will force Tom to be creative since there's no other distractions... And the album will just come out sooner cause the band can come together over the net?

 

Just have to wait and see, I guess.

Why was it in question that Tom couldnt make a song in a couple weeks? All of blinks history except for untitled and neighborhoods was writing entire albums in a matter of weeks. Even dogs eating dogs which was apparently mostly Tom was done in a month. Just because he takes forever to release things doesn’t mean the songs don’t come together quickly when he’s actually working.

On the song though, it’s a fine song. Not as good as rebel girl and kiss and tell. But I think Aaron is great for Tom, makes him focus on the stuff that he’s actually good at

I'm mostly shocked. Tom for the last decade is usually slow as molasses. The quarantine shouldn't be affecting him much at all since Ava has barely been active the last 5 years. 

My question to him now is why is the rest of the album taking so long? We got 2 songs in the last 12 months, then the corona virus hits and he makes a song from conception to completion in 2 weeks.

edit: the first verse is pretty hidious vocally though lol

Haha every time I hear a new Tom song there's at least one moment where I'm like "...he knows he can record another take of that line, right?"
