Jumper Lyrics - Third Eye Blind

Review The Song (15)

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
You could cut ties with all the lies, that you've been living in,
And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand.
I would understand.

The angry boy,
a bit too insane,
Icing over a secret pain,
You know you don't belong,
You're the first to fight,
You're way too loud,
You're The flash of light,
on a burial shroud,
I know something's wrong,
Well everyone I know has got a reason,
to say,
put the past away,
sponsored links
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
You could cut ties with all the lies,
That you've been living in,
And if you do not want to see me again,
I would understand,
I would understand.
And well he's on the table,
and he's gone to code,
And I do not think anyone knows,
What they are doing here,
And your friends have left you,
You've been dismissed.
I never thought it would come to this,
and I, I want you to know,
Everyone's got to face down the demons,
Maybe today,
We can put the past away,

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend.
You could cut ties with all the lies,
that you've been living in,
And if you do not want to see me again,
I would understand,
I would understand,
I would understand...

(I would understand)
(I would understand)

Ya ya ya ya ya...

Can you put the past away?
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
I would understand
(I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
I would understand
(I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
And I would understand
(I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
I would understand
(I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
And I would understand...

Great Song | Reviewer: Anita | 5/1/13

Love the melody, the lyrics.
This song can mean different things to different people.
Just depends on what's happening in your life now.
And later when you've lived, loved, lied, left, it'll mean something else then.

Awesome feeling in this song

feel good song | Reviewer: Joshua Anderson | 8/20/11

This song is a feel good song it gives hope to those that need it and it was great in yes man. all in all I think it speaks to people on many different levels you can get what you want out of it. Me it tells me to cut ties with people that influence me to do the wrong thing and quit lying to myself by saying its OK that I can handle the peer pressure

Very awesome song | Reviewer: Francis | 5/19/11

I think this song is awesome. Because i thought about ending my life and didn't think about what i would have lost. But in fact i did lose my friends and support just for being me. Now i think back to that and realize that i have a lot more and if i would have made that decision then i wouldn't of had seen how great my friends are and how much they love me. The part in the song that says " i wish you would step back from that ledge my friend." Its touching because it makes me think that because i've been saved. i can save others because i know how it feels to be in that darkness. I love this song!!!!

I Will Understand | Reviewer: Kay | 4/6/11

This song is so powerful. It has so many meanings. It seems to me that a lot of people connect it with drugs. To me its more just about wanting someone back and wanting whats best for them, but also undertanding the choices they make. I understand it sounds weird. But i think its just about missing someone and wishing they were the way they used to be. Like tellng them to just come back and "cut ties with all the lies" and be themselves agian Overall this song can connect to someones feelings on many different levels. The tune is catchy enough that it wont annoy you. This-I think is one of their best songs. Its chorus is the bomb.

I need to live this song. | Reviewer: isaiah | 4/12/10

when i listened to this song, i thought it was gay. i said this because i am a stoner, a liar, and a wanna be center of attention...I have been listening to this song lately and i have realized the meaning of this song for me. I have always lied to my family and all of my friends, just to be the kool guy. and smoking pot, for me, has tied me with people who i shouldnt be with and thing and other drugs that i shouldnt be around. Ive had many good friends and family tell me that i shouldnt be doing these things or else im gonna end up dead or in jail. but i have always just turned the other cheek. But i have came to realize that i dont want to be like this anymore. I want to step of my ledge of drugs and lies. thank you T.E.B. for making this song. I think everyone can relate to this song in their own way. So just give it a shot. listen to this song and try to relate every verse with your problems. or things that you dont think is a problem. because if you listen, you will find your problems.

Good Advice | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/3/10

I love this song!! I feel like this song was made for me..In my younger days I had a heavy drug problem and I lived my life on the ledge every day. I should not be here on this earth with all the crazy things I have done. For me, I had to cut ties with many people and the lies. And not lies that I actually told other people, more like lies to myself. Today I am glad I chose to step back from that ledge and now I know what it is to truely live life!

Meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/23/09

The song is about a story that the band's manager told them about a gay guy he knew in college. He went to a conservative college in San Diego and he offed himself by jumping off of a bridge hence the "step back from that ledge" part. The other lyrics are about the lead singer's rough childhood and his parents' divorce.

Song About Crystal Meth Addiction | Reviewer: Charlotte | 6/29/09

I read in an interview with this band (Third Eye Blind) was written about a friend with Crystal Methamphetimine addiction. Yes, suicidal it is, because doing Crystal Meth is commiting suicide, slowly at first, all the while speeding up. I can understand why it says, "I will understand if you never want to see me again". Sometimes you can't help someone because they won't accept help, and you have to let go and turn your back. Good song! Easy to play on the guitar also!! Just A minor, C Major, and G Major. (A couple of times there is a D Major)

my view | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/09

in my opinion, this song could be taken a few different ways. the first time i listened to it, "you could cut ties with all the lies you've been living in", almost sounds like it is talking about someone who is a suicidal compulsive liar. but anyways, just my opinion. it's a great song though.

what...no | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/9/09

this song is not about someone who is suicidal.
cut ties with all the lies that you've been living in..step back from that ledge my friend and if u do not want to see me again i would understand..

- do what you have to do to improve your life and become a happy person and if that means cutting ties with people who are "lies" in your life so be it, they will understand. etc...

You could re-start your life again... | Reviewer: Clarity | 12/25/08

If you are in the midst of continued suffering from all of the "acting" that you have been doing. Trying to be the "player" that you are. You can stop. I know of your secrete pain... I know that you want to live like that you are on that ledge and your life doesn't mean anything, but, hey, as your friends - They will understand if you Cut Ties with them. It's okay. They are your friends and those that will continue to be your friends have always been your friends. You don't have to pretend anymore. Be true to yourself and stop acting like something that you think people want you to be. In front of the mirror in a night club when you are the drunk baster, that is when you do often realize who you are not. Be Good. Step away from throwing your life away for meaningless pretense and Restart your life again please before they throw dirt on your face. It's your life, write it the way you want to! Your friends will understand if you don't talk to them again.

Bad Ass Song | Reviewer: Slitting my Wrists | 11/20/08

damn, this song is bad ass. i could listen to it every day and never get tired of it. there's also a re-make by bedlight for blue eyes, but its not that good. origional is waaaaay better. the lyrics are really good too. they have a lot of meaning to them.

Genius | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/07

WOW thanks Jane i didnt know any of that, even though you express how its so self explanitory, real genius you are, thanks for helping me understand such a difficult song to comprehend.

My view.. | Reviewer: Jane | 10/29/07

This song is about a guy who has a friend that is suicidal. The guy is trying to tell the friend that he "understands." It's pretty self explanitory, just give it another listen and you'll catch all the minor details. For example "And well he's on the table,
and he's gone to code." Means he is at the hospital and he is about to die.
