Blink-182 I Miss You Lyrics

Last updated: 05/24/2012 12:00:00 PM

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

Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you, I miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you, I miss you)

(I miss you, I miss you) [x4]

"I Miss You" is the second single from Blink-182's 2003 self titled album. It was released in February 2004. The song signals a drastic departure from Blink-182's usual upbeat, crudely humorous style, presenting a somber theme and a slower pace. In the music video (see below), the band plays at a haunted mansion. The video was also featured on their Greatest Hits album.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although "All the Small Things" had more radio airplay, "I Miss You" sold more singles, earning gold certification for selling over 500,000 copies (RIAA gold single certification). The song was a top ten hit single in the United Kingdom, peaking at number eight in 2004.

The song features references to Tim Burton's 1993 movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, with "We can live like Jack and Sally" and "We'll have Halloween on Christmas". Travis Barker says that the line was directed towards his then girlfriend, Shanna Moakler. The two would have a Nightmare Before Christmas themed wedding on October 30, 2004. From Wikipedia
