Mobile is the fifth track on Avril Lavigne's album Let Go. It was written by Clif Magness and Avril Lavigne. It was a released as a radio-only single in Australia but was released as an airplay and physical single in New Zealand.[1]

The song is also featured on the soundtracks to the films, The Medallion[2] and Wimbledon. It also made an appearance in the film, Just Married.

Critical reception Edit

Rolling Stone was positive and praised the countrish delivery of song: "Mobile" should be her next completely inescapable hit: As Lavigne wails over crashing waves of acoustic and electric guitars, her big voice occasionally turns sideways in a drawl, a casual hint that she may actually be, of all things, a fine country singer in the making."[3]

Music videoEdit

The official music video for the song was shot on the streets of Los Angeles in December 2002, but remained unreleased, it was later leaked on January 5, 2011.

The video features Lavigne playing the guitar and walking on the streets with some scenes of her crying. It's unknown why the music video was shelved, however, fans speculate it could've been because of a conflict with her label, not fitting the album's style, or simply not deemed good enough.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Went back home again
This sucks
Gotta pack up and leave again
Say goodbye to all my friends
Can't say when I'll be there again
It's time now to turn around
Turn my back on everything
Turn my back on everything

[Chorus 1]
Everything's changing when I turn around
All out of my control
I'm a mobile
Everything's changing when I turn around
All out of my control
I'm a mobile

[Verse 2]
Start back at this life
Stretch myself back into the vibe
I'm waking up to say I've tried
Instead of waking up to another TV Guide
It's time now to turn around
Turn and walk on this crazy ground
Oh-oh-oh

[Chorus 1]
Everything's changing when I turn around
All out of my control
I'm a mobile
Everything's changing when I turn around
All out of my control
I'm a mobile

[Bridge]
Hanging from the ceiling
Life's a mobile
Spinning 'round with mixed feelings
Crazy and wild
Sometimes, I wanna scream out loud

[Verse 3]
Everything's changing everywhere I go
All out of my control
Everything's changing everywhere I go
Out of what I know
Yeah, yeah

[Breakdown]
La-la-la-la-la-la (la-la)
La-la-la-la-la-la (la-la)
La-la-la-la-la-la (la-la-la)
La-la-la-la-la-la

[Chorus 2]
Everything's changing when I turn around
All out of my control
I'm a mobile
Everything's changing out of what I know
Everywhere I go
I'm a mobile
Everywhere I go
I'm a mobile
