Most of the albums that I listen to have at least one slower, softer song mixed into the other louder, faster songs and this one is it for Blink 182’s most recent album California. The song’s lyrics tell the story of someone who’s realizing how lonely they are now that they have to let go of someone they care about, how everything is different now that they’re gone.

This song is the perfect “How do I explain how much you mean to me while saying goodbye?” song which, with graduation coming up, is something everyone needs in their life at some point. While the lyrics are powerful and moving so is the instrumental track. The guitar in the background is soothing and the drums, when they come in, provide a good background beat that’s not overpowering everything else.

Honestly, if I could, I would just listen to this song on repeat during any stressful event and be able to believe everything would be alright.
