Going Away To College Lyrics - Blink-182



Review The Song (24)


Please take me by the hand
It's so cold out tonight
I'll put blankets on the bed
I won't turn off the light
Just don't forget to think about me
And I won't forget you
I'll write you once a week she said

Why does it feel the same
To fall in love or break it off
And if young love is just a game
Then I must have missed the kick off
Don't depend on me to ever follow through on anything
But I'd go through hell for you and

[Chorus:]
I haven't been this scared in a long time
And I'm so unprepared so here's your valentine
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody
This world's an ugly place, but you're so beautiful to me

I'll think about the times
She kissed me after class
And she put up with my friends
I acted like an ass
I'd ditch my lecture to watch the girls play soccer
Is my picture still hanging in her locker?

[Chorus x2]

Great song | Reviewer: badu | 8/7/12

"And I won't forget you
I'll write you once a week she said"
"And she put up with my friends
I acted like an ass"
Pretty much describes my last 'relationship' , we both moved, and we promised we would keep in touch, i tried but shes not interested. Great song !

Really? | Reviewer: Germ | 3/20/12

Its a good song ill admit....but dont relate this to the sex pistols or Rancid or subhumans....thats real punk. this is some real mainstream stuff and now a days you have people who think they are punk because theu know the most burned bands like the misfits and ramones....just my opinion.

Song great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/8/11

Can't believe some people are still finding out about blink, fantastic.

Future interests for them may include, NOFX, Rancid, SNFU, Ten Foot Pole, Bad Religion, D.I. Circle Jerks, Killing Joke, Misfits, Ramones, Sex pistols, The Damned, Social unrest, Descendents and Subhumans

Should provide a fairly good punk history lesson.

If you like it more hardcore check out Descendents, Misfits and Subhumans.

loveee. | Reviewer: kcool. | 5/5/10

this time last year i heard this song for the first time. i love blink-182 and when i heard this song i knew that i could relate to it. my boyfriend was a senior when i was a freshman and when he went to college i had never been so scared and upset in my life. i look back at it now and realize that it was all worth it. we have been dating for a year and a half and i love him very much. so to anyone who has a boyfriend or a girlfriend going to collge just know that if it's meant to be, it's going to work out. it may suck now, but it's all gonna get better.

Crazy relatable | Reviewer: Bri | 11/20/09

When I was a little girl, this was one of my all time favorites, though I had no clue what they were singing about. Now, here I am, senior year with a boyfriend of almost two years. I never thought I'd be relating to the song's lyrics verbatim.

College for real... | Reviewer: Leaving | 4/7/09

I downloaded this song as a sophmore just because I thought Blink-182 is cool.
As I approach my final days of High School with my girlfriend of 1 1/2 years I'm thankful for a song that even though it doesn't answer any questions...feels so good to sing when thinking about things.

:-( | Reviewer: Monkey | 2/1/09

I also like this song, it is because me and my girlfriend are both seniors. We must continue our studies that is why we will going away to college that we are far from each other... It's sad to accept, but we need to take the challenge even though it is hard. We trust each other and I know that I love her so much.

<3 | Reviewer: jay | 12/17/08

yeah my and my ex were together for like 3 years and like the summer before college she made me a cd, and this song was in it, and guess what, we went off to college and had to end it. this song just resembles everything <3foreveraudra

Best Song EVER | Reviewer: Nina | 10/19/08

Wow...this is one of my fav song of Blink....I miss them so much....This song reminds me of the time 1992 where they stared from...I wish I could go back in that time of year...I wish Blink didnt broke up....:( [sorry for my english]

It Means So Much To Me. | Reviewer: Erin | 3/17/08

I love Blink 182, and I have just recently fallen in love with this song. It means a lot to me because my current boyfriend is a senior in high school this year, and I am only a freshman. He will be going away to college, and I somewhat feel as if he is leaving me behind. I will definately keep his picture in my locker, and I will never forget about him. And I know, personally, I have not been so scared in my life...

2ndish favorite | Reviewer: Daniel | 11/11/07

this has got to be my second favorite song
the first is The Ghosts of You by My Chemical Romance.
both of them are beautifully writen

Seranade Material | Reviewer: Rick | 10/14/07

this song has been a favorite of mine ever since i was a Sophmore (2003-2004) in high school - im learning it to sing to a very special girl - its very romantic... and i cant wait to know the entire song on my guitar ;)

Real music. | Reviewer: Nicole | 8/5/07

This song is one of the best even performed. It pretty much describes the way I feel about my ex boyfriend who I still love.
