    this song gives me so much nostalgic feels


    Gets me every time. Lifes great. Dealing with my head is a son of bitch... Everything is quiet, Since you're not around,
    And I live in the numbness now......

    two guitars and a drum set and a nice punch is all that i want

  23. Will Bracken

    3EB makes such sad music, yet so beautiful!

  24. Brad Smith

    That fucking guitar.

  25. peter hoban

    One of the best albums ever made. Relevant when it was cut and still stands today. For me it's a time capsule I can open whenever I want. The soundtrack to the best days of my life. God do I miss those days and those amazing people.

  26. TB46667 - The Golden Age Gamer

    That outro gets me every time. I could listen to that for hours

  52. Andy Griffith

    I don’t think people should keep distinguishing this song from the singles but should sit back and embrace as a whole how amazing the entire album is . Stop nit picking and enjoy entirety 🙏🏻

  53. Scott Wachowski

    Been listening to 3EB most of my adult life, but f#ck me, running ... how did I never see just how amaze-balls they ARE (not "were"). Hey SJ: Taste & times change, but talent remains. I hope you see that. Keep f#cking killing it.

  66. bobby los kings

    Here bc it was one of my fav bands in the 90' times

  67. Cea Jae

    I was 13 years old, alone, on a Greyhound bus from OK to AZ and listened to this album on my discman on repeat the whole 1000 miles. It was an experience I'll never forget and listening to these songs 20 years later bring back awesome memories. I get flashbacks of looking out the bus windows and seeing the blurry lights of the night zooming by. I remember being and FEELING so free from the chaotic life I was leaving behind me and this music soothed my soul during that 24 hour ride. I remember thinking about how I could get off at any bus stop I chose to, and disappear from my everything and no one could do a damn thing about it or ever find me again. I was free.

  68. Fake Name

    Only about 10% of commentators lived this song.

  69. Scott Avett

    in a toxic and unhealthy relationship currently , this song really fucking hurts.

  70. Aaron Locker

    Man, I knew these comments would be tough. Those of you who have lost someone, keep in your heart that you will one day see that person again and that day will show you deeper meaning than the entirety of your time here with them.

    You knew them for years, soon you will add centuries.

  71. Lautaro Montamat

    Now im the background, and the song hits so hard

  72. ata ergan

    who is here because heyzeusheretoasts?

  73. hertspatriot

    top tune, memories of buffy

  74. Dr Sapphire

    I carry you around in the background- OMG how much is that so real

  75. AtomicTheKyd

  76. Starry Kat

    Cause I felt you long after we were through...

  77. Its Butters

    Who the hell is here purely based off of the instrumentation? That's what sells me 1st, then the lyrics follow.

  78. Nik Likwid

    One of my favorite 3EB songs. My favorite part is "as you come swimming into view, and I'm hanging on your words like I always used to do" perfect summary of that beautiful girl in the wavy dress as she comes walking up, I am talking that most BANGING sexy girl you remember from back in the day. She's in a black dress, and it's a warm summer day. And when she finally gets to you it's like you're so focused on her and what she has to say that everything else just fades away. That's my story anyway, at least how I remember it ;)

    Nik Likwid

    Not to mention the beautiful guitar melody at the very end. Totally perfect. Not surprising this song has less than a million views. Too good, too inspirational, too much beauty would be introduced to the world. That's not what mainstream media wants it seems more and more.

  79. Fret less

    1997-2019 ♪♫ ♥

  80. Alexander Supertramp

    I dunno who this KJ Apa is, but he must have good taste in music.

  81. Katie Coye

    3:41 that’s when you should listen. This song and god of wine... amazing. you just get the feels listening to those songs. These songs are to underrated. I’m glad to see so many people here. Good job

  82. matilde folli

    ouh fuck kj u are fckin cute, this song is the best for describe ur situation with Luke now, i love u and i love Luke, the best friend and father.
    holy crap now i cry, yeh the world are not more same without this person.

  83. Niall Hassett

    I was never the biggest fan of third eye blind. I liked The Jumper and Semi Charmed Life but I did listen to this because of Kj Apa and Luke Perry and I found a new love for their music, the beat and music are really good and the lines are full of depth and emotional.

  84. Kélia Bou'am


  85. Juliette Buvry

    KJ Apa listen this for Luke Perry❤️😭

  86. Ken Thomson

    I was in NYC when the Knicks played Pacers when this album came out..all these songs were on the juke box and after playing the ones I heard on the radio...I hit the others which I ended up liking better...Background & God of Wine became my faves

  87. anthony irvin

    Is it just me but the very end with that little bit of guitar just makes me so sad and think about everything

    Josh Phillips

    anthony irvin yeah I get a surreal feeling specifically like I’m floating by an island in the middle of the ocean, and the island is my life. Yeah it sounds weird but it’s tho only way I can explain it.

  88. tink

  96. Emily

    KJ is in pain. As is all of Luke’s family and friends. Luke, you were a good man. And you will be missed everyday by so many. Luke meant a lot to KJ and I can only hope KJ finds peace some day. It’s gotta be hard losing someone like Luke in your life. This whole situation is devastating. And I can’t stop crying

    Fake Name

    Cant stop crying over someone you never


    Fake Name yeah, it’s called having a heart. Ever heard of it? (I’m assuming no based off of your comment)
