Blink 182 – Bored To Death lyrics

[Verse 1: Mark Hoppus]
There's an echo pulling out the meaning
Rescuing a nightmare from a dream
The voices in my head are always screaming
That none of this means anything to me

[Pre-Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
And it's a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I'm not coming home

[Chorus: Matt Skiba + Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Verse 2: Matt Skiba]
There's a stranger staring at the ceiling
Rescuing a tiger from a tree
The pictures in her head are always dreaming
Each of them means everything to me

[Pre-Chorus: Matt Skiba]
And it's a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I'm not coming home

[Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Bridge: Mark Hoppus]
I think I met her at the minute that the rhythm was set down
I said I'm sorry I'm a bit of a let down
But all my friends are daring me to come over
So I come over and over and over

So let me buy you a drink
And we'll pretend that you think
That I'm the man of your dreams
Come to life in a dive bar
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over

[Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Outro: Matt Skiba]
Oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh...

    I first heard this song in the summer of 2016, right before I had the time of my life. I did a lot during the summer, and would just hear this song on the radio every once in a while. Now that I'm back at high school, and when I am extremely bored in class, I just think back to my summer memories and play this song in my head. And I realize how "life is too short to last long" and we should all enjoy our time before it is over.
