I sit alone in my bedroom
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding
My love is yearning

I hold my breath and close my eyes and...
Dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away
Years Away!

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter,
We laugh together

I hold my breath and close my eyes and...
Dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away
Years Away!

I sit alone in my bedroom
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding
My love is yearning

I hold my breath and close my eyes and...
Dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away

    Billie joe armstrong wrote this after he met adrienne nesser before he, mike and tre' shot too stardom. He met her at a show and they hit it off quite well. Problem was, she lived halfway across the country. So billie joe decided to make a gig in the state that she lived in. Later they got married in the backyard and still are wedded to this day. Billie wrote this song about how crazy he was about her even though she lived "2000 light years away"

    To me, this song is about missing someone because you care for them so much, and you can't get them off your mind. It's admitting vulnerability, but embracing it because you feel love & compassion for the other person. I heard somewhere that Billie Joe wrote this after his first kiss with Adrienne (which is unbelievably sweet!).
