I Miss You

Bandmates Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge may have exuded immature, goofball personas during their time in Blink 182, but underneath they were very serious musicians and songwriters. Take their hit I Miss You, for example. They discussed themes first, and then each wrote on of the verses in separate rooms. Barker wrote the first verse, and Hopper wrote the second. They then reconvended to bring the song together with the chorus and record it.
Hello there,
The angel from my nightmare,
The shadow in the background of the morgue.
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley.
We can live like Jack and Sally
If we want.

 

Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas.
And in the night we’ll wish this never ends,
We’ll wish this never ends.

 

(I miss you, miss you)
(I miss you, miss you)

 

Where are you?
And I’m so sorry.
I cannot sleep, I cannot dream tonight.
I need somebody and always
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time.

 

And as I stared I counted
The webs from all the spiders
Catching things and eating their insides.

 

Like indecision to call you
And hear your voice of treason.
Will you come home and stop this pain tonight?
Stop this pain tonight.

 

[3x]
Don’t waste your time on me.
You’re already the voice inside my head.
(I miss you, miss you)
Don’t waste your time on me.
You’re already the voice inside my head.
(I miss you, miss you)

 

(I miss you, miss you) [4x]
