blink-182 - I Miss You



Blink guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, who co-wrote the tune with his bandmates Mark Hoppus (bass) and Travis Barker (drums), explained how the track was influenced by The Cure, whose frontman, Robert Smith, sings on another song from the album - "All Of This":


"I'm a really big Cure fan, and one day I was listening to their song called 'Love Cats,' and I loved the idea of using a stand up bass guitar [actually a double bass. It's a viola and not a member of the guitar family. Same for the normal bass 'guitar.' That's just a double bass turned on its side with frets, and shaped like a guitar] and jazz brushes. So what we ended up doing was writing a song with all acoustic."



Lyrics


[Mark Hoppus:]


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


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, I miss you


I miss you, I miss you



[Tom DeLonge:]


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 stare, 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



[Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus:]


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)



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)


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)



[Mark Hoppus:]


I miss you, I miss you


I miss you, I miss you


I miss you, I miss you


I miss you, I miss you
