I heard you crying loud, all the way across town
Cause you been searching for that someone
And it's me out on the prowl
As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself

Well, don't get lonely now, and dry your whining eyes
I'm just roaming for the moment
Sleazin' my back yard so don't get
So uptight you been thinking about ditching me

No time to search the world around
'Cause you know where I'll be found
When I come around

Well, I heard it all before, so don't knock down my door
I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser
To try and slag me down because I know you're right

So go do what you like, make sure you do it wise
You may find out that your self-doubt means nothing
Was ever there
You can't go forcing something if it's just not right

No time to search the world around
'Cause you know where I'll be found
When I come around

No time to search the world around
'Cause you know where I'll be found
When I come around

When I come around

A track from Green Day's first major label album, this is a very personal song lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote about being away from his girlfriend, Adrienne Nesser, and the frustrations they both felt when he was on the road. Billie Joe met Adrienne in 1990 when Green Day performed in Minnesota, where she lived. He was just 18, and found it difficult to maintain a long distance relationship, especially with his touring schedule. In this song, he affirms his devotion for her, assuring her that when he does get to see her (when he "comes around") he will make it up to her. 

Billie Joe and Adrienne got married in July 1994, a few months after Dookie was released and right in the midst of the band's rapid ascent to stardom (the band was touring at the time). The marriage endured, and couple had two children together.

      Verse 1]
      Do you know what's worth fighting for
      When it's not worth dying for?
      Does it take your breath away
      And you feel yourself suffocating?
      Does the pain weigh out the pride?
      And you look for a place to hide?
      Did someone break your heart inside?
      You're in ruins

      [Chorus]
      One, twenty-one guns
      Lay down your arms
      Give up the fight
      One, twenty-one guns
      Throw up your arms into the sky
      You and I

      [Verse 2]
      When you're at the end of the road
      And you lost all sense of control
      And your thoughts have taken their toll
      When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
      Your faith walks on broken glass
      And the hangover doesn't pass
      Nothing's ever built to last
      You're in ruins

      [Chorus]
      One, twenty-one guns
      Lay down your arms
      Give up the fight
      One, twenty-one guns
      Throw up your arms into the sky
      You and I

      [Bridge]
      Did you try to live on your own
      When you burned down the house and home?
      Did you stand too close to the fire?
      Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

      [Guitar Solo]

      [Verse 3]
      When it's time to live and let die
      And you can't get another try
      Something inside this heart has died
      You're in ruins

      [Chorus]
      One, twenty-one guns
      Lay down your arms
      Give up the fight
      One, twenty-one guns
      Throw up your arms into the sky

      One, twenty-one guns
      Lay down your arms
      Give up the fight
      One, twenty-one guns
      Throw up your arms into the sky
      You and I

      [Verse 1]
      Do you have the time to listen to me whine?
      About nothing and everything all at once
      I am one of those
      Melodramatic fools
      Neurotic to the bone
      No doubt about it

      [Chorus]
      Sometimes I give myself the creeps
      Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
      It all keeps adding up
      I think I'm cranking up
      Am I just paranoid?
      Or am I just stoned?

      [Verse 2]
      I went to a shrink
      To analyze my dreams
      She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
      I went to a whore
      He said my life's a bore
      So quit my whining 'cause it's bringing her down

      [Chorus]
      Sometimes I give myself the creeps
      Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
      It all keeps adding up
      I think I'm cracking up
      Am I just paranoid?
      I'm just stoned

      [Bridge]
      Grasping to control
      So I better hold on

      [Chorus]
      Sometimes I give myself the creeps
      Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
      It all keeps adding up
      I think I'm cracking up
      Am I just paranoid?
      I'm just stoned

      Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
      Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
      So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
      It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

      [Chorus]
      It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
      I hope you had the time of your life

      [Verse 2]
      So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
      Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
      Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
      For what it's worth it was worth all the while

      [Chorus]
      It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
      I hope you had the time of your life

      [Violin Break]

      [Chorus]
      It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
      I hope you had the time of your life
      It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
      I hope you had the time of your life
