Carousel Lyrics

I talk to you every now and then
I never felt so alone again
I stop to think at a wishing well
My thoughts send me on a carousel

Here I am standing on my own
Not a motion from the telephone
I know not a reason why
Solitudes a reason to...

    This song is about how hard is to live on your own, after finishing high school.

    This song is about how life is making minimum wage. "Buy food every once in a while, but not enough to purchase a smile."

    as per the lyrics provided on this site I believe just by looking at the first three paragraphs
    "I talk to you every now and then
    I never felt so alone again
    I stop to think at a wishing well
    My thoughts send me on a carousel

    Just by the first paragraph
    its about an ex talking to her every now and then and he feels alone and wishes he gets back together

    Here I am standing on my own
    Not a motion from the telephone
    I know not a reason why
    Solitudes a reason to die

    Calls her leaves a message and she doesn't call him back or care because she is totally over him and he just wants to die because he's miserable with out her

    Just you wait and see
    As school life is a
    It is a woken dream
    Aren't you feeling alone?"

    Threatens that he will kill himself if she doesnt take him back they met in school and he has dreams of her and wants to know if shes alone too

    Carousel is my fav blink song.............the band is trying to show how when you grow up and have to start working for a living life begins to somewhat suck and you realize how hard it is to get by in life. It also shows how lonely life can be when you have to work all day and then come home eat then sleep and then do it all over again for many years

    I think this song is about loneliness, and want, not having the best of luck with money, and fucking moms

    I just want to say, I laughed at that "Buying food every once in a while, but not enough to purchase a smile" Because It's like saying two things. 1. He's referring to McDonald's Free smiles. LOL. or 2. He's referring to the fact that he's not happy. This is probably Tom or Mark, since they both were adults at the start of the band. musicians don't make MUCH money doing Gigs and stuff, So this is a song about hardship and struggles. I MEAN, LOOK AT THE NOW. Well, Not now, But maybe 1 year ago. They split up now. :'(

    BLINK 182 SHALL LIVE ON.

    "Talk to you every now and then never felt so alone again" He is singing about how hard it is to live on his own after high skool and how he misses his mothers cooking "Buy food every once and a while but not enough to purchase a smile"
