My friend drove off the other day,
And now he's gone and all they say,
Is you gotta live cause life goes on
But now I see i'm mortal too
I can't live my life like you
Gotta live it up while life goes on
And I think it's alright
That I do what I like
cause that's the way I wanna live
And so I give
And i'm still giving
And now I wonder about my friend
If he gave all he could give
Cause he lived his life like I live mine
If you could see inside my head
Then you'd start to understand
The things I value in my heart
And I think it's alright
That I do what I like
Cause thats the way I wanna live
And so I give
And I'm still giving
You know that,
I know that,
Your watching me
And I think it's alright
That I do what I like
Cause thats the way I wanna live
And so I give
And I'm still giving
Gotta make a plan
Gotta do what's right
Can't run around in circles
If ya wanna build a life
But I don't wanna make a plan
For a day far away
While im young and while I'm able
All I wanna do is........

    This song is about Billie Joe and Mike Dirnt's friend Jason (obviously) and he died in a car crash. They decided to write a song about Jason to remember him. He was obviously a good friend. :) But the bass in this song rocks. GO MIKE!
