Featuring Mark Hoppus
Hot Mulligan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I kinda miss you, back in high school
Twenty-five and I still think about your drawings that you made
I kinda miss you, but I can't talk to you
'Cause in my mind, the only thing that I could do now is intrude

I've got a ring, I think that she'd love you too
But I can't get past the fact I drag almost everyone down
I didn't think I'd say I wanna see you
I won't reach out to you after all this time
I'd imagine I don't fit into your view

Frozen drives from Rocky Horror outgrown
Lofty plans and failing class aside, you'd
Find me in the margins of a sketchbook
Probably best to let the memory die out

I've got a ring, I think that she'd love you too
But I can't get past the fact I drag almost everyone down
Painting the walls that lined the hall after school
Smoke and tattoos, five years removed, hope you'd recognize me now

I don't even know who you are
Memories faded out just like a dark room lesson
Clarity lost on resin
Maybe I'm just thinking too hard
Rather let it dissipate than face my conscience
Call it faking progress

I've got a ring, I think that she'd love you too
But I can't get past the fact I drag almost everyone down
Painting the walls that lined the hall after school
Smoke and tattoos, five years removed, hope you'd recognize me now





I kinda miss you

The chorus of the song features the lyrics "I've got a ring, I think that she'd love you too. But I can't get past the fact I drag almost everyone down."

The bridge of the song is particularly poignant, as it highlights the conflict between wanting to hold onto memories of the past, but also recognizing the need to move on. The lyrics "I don't even know who you are. Memories faded out just like a dark room lesson" suggest that the singer is struggling to remember specifics about this person, but still holds onto a general sense of nostalgia for their time together.


Overall, "Featuring Mark Hoppus" is a heart-wrenching reflection on lost love and the pain of growing older. The song captures the complexity of relationships and the bittersweet memories that we hold onto from our past.
