Blink 182: Not Now Meaning
Song Released: 2005
Not Now Lyrics
Help me, I'm scared please show me how
To fight this, God has a master plan
And I guess, I am in his demand
Please save me, this time I cannot run
And I'll see, you when this is done
And now I,...

"WOW noobs. Blink 182 wrote this song already and it was released on an atticus album, but not on a blink 182 album until their greatest hits album."
ACTUALLY this song WAS released on a blink album b4 the greatest hits album, it was on their self-titled album.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
its about a guy saying goodbye before he has died, "Please save me" and "this time I cannot run" and "you are the one who's left behind" and "please stay until I'm gone" and "I'm here hold on" and "I see the light; it feels good" and "Its useless, my name has made the list and I wish I gave you one last kiss" and "and take my one last breath" Its just so sad; because I think its not just about a guy saying goodbe to the one he loves, its them saying goodbye to fans, not so subtly saying they're breaking up and blink 182 will just be the past, a memory. we miss you guys altogether, Travis, Mark, Tom. Why didn't you stay together for the kids?
I feel the song is about Martyrdom. "God has a masterplan, and I guess I am in His demand" "and now I have come to realize that you are the one who is left behind" which means my conviction is right, and you will be left behind.
it also could be about Conscription (draft):
"its useless, my name has made the list...and I wish I gave you one last kiss.."

Hey! this song was not written for Take off your pants and jacket... It was one of the songs written for the selftitled album... In one video in the oficial website of blink-182 you can see tom (in the house where they were writing and recording songs for the selftitled album) writing this song... The chorus... It was a little bit different but, almost the same... ok, that was it...

This song was written ages ago and was to be released with on the take off your pants and jacket album but was thought to be not to suiting for it. Its not about his daughter as it was written before she even existed.
Also everyone on this website are twats, I'm a song writer and I purposely make songs now that mean nothing but I know to others they'll somehow find stupid meanings in them.
ok I've finsihed my rant *BLINK-182 ROCK!*

I absolutely love this song! It's amazing! I think the lyrics are really cool, especially the first few lines: "Come here, please hold my hand, Lord, now help me, I'm scared please show me how to fight this, God has a master plan and I guess, I am in his demand." Definitely one of my favorite songs now!

This is about Tom's daughter who has cystic fibrosis and has trouble breathing 'take my one last breathe'. This is also why toms new band is called Angels and Airwaves.
A great song.

I think the song is about someone dying and they're saying goodbye to all the people they're leaving behind.
I find the song lyrics really meaningful, the chorus has a really strong meaning.
Wow, I really love this song.
