CLASSIC CUT: Green Day – “When I Come Around” (1994)


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

Man I love Green Day & this song (hard to believe its 15 years old
now). Its basically about a man in a relationship who knows they’re
made for each other, but yet he’s not ready to go the next step in a
relationship and doesn’t want to force it. But he believes that in
time, he can be the right man for her…when he comes around. How
real is that! This song was basically the movie Baby Boy before Baby
Boy.

Here’s the song live from Woodstock ’94 aka Mudstock

Lyrics:
I heard you crying loud,
all the way across town
You’ve been searching for that someone,

and it’s me out on the prowl
As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself
Don’t get lonely now
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

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 selfdoubt 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 (2 times)
When I come around (sev times)
#END
