Blink-182 - All The Small Things


Blink-182 - All The Small Things - Meaning of the song


Guitarist Tom DeLonge wrote this for his girlfriend after she complained that he always writes songs about other girls. He was afraid it wouldn't be good so he kept telling her it was terrible. It ended up being a hit and she was very pleased with it.

According to DeLonge, the lyrics are true. His girlfriend really did leave him roses by the stairs after a long night in the studio.

He also admitted that he can no longer listen to this song.

"It came on the radio the other day," he said, "and I was like, 'I sound like I'm f--king 11.'" "It's still played everywhere, but I don't know why," DeLonge added. "Blink has some really great songs that I think have legs to stand around for a long period of time. But that's not one of them and it haunts me!"
