“At the Library” by Green Day


 

"At the Library" is from Green Day's first album 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours. It’s a great, happy, punky beat about noticing and falling for a girl in the library. Love found at the library…it’s a familiar tale. Enjoy!

This clip is of Green Day playing "At the Library" in Birmingham, England in October of 2009.

Here’s the band performing "At the Library" back in their early years at Pinole Valley High School in May 1990.

"At The Library" Lyrics

Hey there lookin’ at me
Tell me what do you see
But you quickly turn your head away
Try to find the words I could use
Don’t have the courage to come up to you
My chance is looking a bit grey

Staring across the room
Are you leaving soon?
I just need a little time

What is it that drives me mad
Girls like you that I never had
What is it about you that I adore?
What makes me feel so much pain?
That makes me go so insane
What is it about you that I adore?

Staring across the room
Are you leaving soon?
I just need a little time

Why did you have to leave so soon?
Why did you have to walk away?
Oh well it happened again
She walked away with her boyfriend
Maybe we’ll meet again someday.

Like Green Day?
