Blink 182: I Miss You Meaning
Song Released: 2004
Covered By: 5 Seconds of Summer
I Miss You Lyrics
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 you want
Where you can always find me...

To me it sounds like the chorus of this song indicates mixed emotions towards someone. When delong sings "don't waste your time on me, you're already a voice inside my head" it's as if he's telling someone that it's too late, they're nothing more to him than a memory. Then hoppus follows with "I miss you...", as if contradicting the previous statement. It's like this person has been hurt badly by the one he loves, and wants to them to leave, but all that he can think about is how much he loves them. Other phrases in the song seem to indicate this as well: "the angel from my nightmare" (unless you interpret this as a direct reference to the nightmare before christmas). The "nightmare" mentioned is a pre-conceived situation this person has been fearing (ie: his loved one cheating on him, or maybe breaking up with him). And the "angel" obviously, is his loved one. The verses of the song sound mostly like symbolic reminiscings of an unrequitted lover. In anycase, that's just how I interpret the song.

Forget about who was the song dedicated to.. TOM.. TRAVIS wutever... The thing is that the song must be dedicated to a special person that they miss and that their voice is unforgetable maybe the part of the Nightmare Before Christmas has to do with the song they are just giving out an example of a happy couple. The part where they say "I cannot sleep I cannot dream tonight.. I need somebody and always". I think that part is so sweet and true. We've all had these days where it may be 2:30 in the morning and you just can't sleep neither dream because you are still thinking of that person and you start thinking how much you need someone by your side to be with you and to care and love you.

Yes indeedy, there is parts of the song that relate to The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton along with parts of the video. The lines 'And we can live like jack and sally if we want, Where you can always find me and we'll have Halloween on Christmas.' are based around the movie and the video for I Miss You just has the same vibe as the movie(TNBC).
Anyway, I think this song is about Tom's missing of his family (One of the factors in the breaking up of this band.... Tom wanted a break... Mark never cared... Read Kerrang! cause I can't be bothered going over the break up... its just depressing!). This was just one of the many songs on the self titled album that Tom wrote about this and if you listen to the ending few minutes of Violence there's a big ass message to Toms wife. I really strayed from the point didn't i? So... I Miss You = Directed at Toms wife.
**** In the video there's a scene where two lesbians kiss... Why do I just know Tom was standing behind the camera crews etc and nodding in approval? ****
Thank you, that is all... Good night.
BLINK RULE! \\m/ (-_-) \\m/

I believe this song is about a boy who's significant other has either left him or is becoming distant and not themselves anymore. The line 'Like indecision to call you. And hear your voice of treason. Will you come home and stop the pain tonight. Stop this pain tonight' indicates that she may be cheating or coming home late at night or not coming home at all. All in all, this song is really sad and this cover is amazing.

This was a cover of Blink182, but 5sos covered it a few yrs ago, my brother still thinks it's about spiders, and eating their insides.

Ok, 5SOS didn’t actually write this song, but it’s sweet gay they did a cover. Maybe they just really like the song. Or they truly connect with it emotionally. This song is about missing someone (obviously) but loving them enough to let them go. “Don’t waste your time on me” most of the song though is just thoughts in their head with situations regarding the person they miss.

It's a cover of blink-182. It's about hoping your relationship never ends no matter what happens because the love is so strong

This is the cover of a song by Blink 182 called "I Miss You" which is about a guy who's trying to find his long lost love who has died, but he's still trying to find her because it's hard for him to move on and he misses her

well, you should go and check the interpretation of the original song :)

It's about one of them is missing someone and this hurt them. It;s so sad but I know how they feel.
okay who it was written for or whatever blah blah blah,
I was thinking,
the part where he says
"don't waste your time on me, you're already the voice inside my head"
like shes ruined him for other women. hear me out. it's like saying the feel of the song is he is willing to wait around for this girl, he is stuck in love with someone who probably doesn't love him anymore...
and how some people go back to a familiar person because they may be randomly lonely
and it leads people on, screws with their head, like when someone moves on but they don't wanna be a jerk and come out and say I wanna move on, but don't want you to.
I take it as he is saying don't waste your time on me... don't try and string me along. cause youre already in my head. with the decisions I make, the people I see, when u spend so much time with someone who is a big part of how you live your life you carry them with you...
just a thought anyway. cute.

"In the night well wish this never ends" is my favorite line because hes telling the truth and basically saying; "you may hate me again tomorrow but you do still love me when we're in a comfortable embrace." Proving the love between the couple

This song doesn't belong to 5sos, it is a cover they done by Blink 182

Firstly, this is a cover hehe. Second the meaning is missing someone. If you watch blink182 official music video it kinda of explains.
hope I helped x

This song, which is originally written by Blink 182, is about the aftermath of a breakup. The guy is feeling alone and wants to get back together with his past girlfriend "the angel from his nightmare" or past relationship. He's still in love with her and misses her. She's the "voice inside his head"
anonymous Sep 23rd, 2014 9:28pm report
This is their cover of Blink 182's "I Miss You" and it's obviously about missing somebody :P
I think it's a great song
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

He wants the person to leave because he dose not want to hurt the people he loves but all he can think about is ow much he loves this person.
