I doubt you all know this, but this The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus dedicated this song to the 8 teenagers who were killed by an E4 tornado in Enterprise, Alabama on March 1, 2007. A boy saved his girlfriend by throwing his body over hers. He was killed by the tornado, and she's alive today. He did it because he loved her and wanted for her to live. "I will never let you fall, I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to heaven." Thus, he's her guardian angel. Enterprise High School was destroyed by this tornado, and it was rebuilt and opened up two years ago. My brothers knew people who were in that school when the tornado hit. Those are MY song facts.Emily - Hartford, Al
This song reminds me of my best friend and how he is always there for me and that he will never let me fall and he will be there for me though it allAlex - East Haddam, Ct
I think of my friends.......That I will always be there for them and will let them fall. No matter what I have to do.Rhianna - London, United Kingdom
i think this song is about a guy/chick who loves this girl no matter what. he will do anything and be anything just to see her smile. when the lyrics say "When i see your smile, tears run down my face" it means he/she is so rejoiced in seeing her smile that he/she will just drop down in tears, they will do anything to make her happy, no matter what it may result for them. this song reminds me of my girlfriend. i love her soo muchTyrsa - Elgin, Tx
i've got this best friend of mine who..every time i hear this song, i think of. another close friend of mine is trying to get him to ask me out, and we all know he likes me, i've asked him and he said yeah. but so far, nothing. he's so stupid lol (: but i love 'im lol (:Emma - Caledonia, Ny

I dont underdtand this song that much in the beginning because it says " When i see your smile, tears run down my face" does that mean that he is like happy or sad to see her smile?Freddy - San Antonio, Tx
yeah im going though the same thing with my ex and shes the mother my 4 12 month old daughter and i was in a coma for 2 12 months too find we were no longer together so i can relate to the songChris - Nowear, Nh
This song is obviously about someone who loves someone else so much. Total devotion. However, near the end of the song they do say, "Pull my strings just for a thrill" so the other person might just be playing with the narrator. But either way, it's one of my fave love songsKayla - Ione, Ca
great song... needs a better music video though...Cliff - Minneapolis, Mn
I believe this song can be about many types of love, whether it be a romantic relationship or a relationship of another nature. The main theme through out the song is total devotion, so it does appear more natural for people to think of romance when they hear it..the singer is belting out notes about how he'll never turn away from someone. Such extreme loyalty is rarely found in your standard friendship and the tempo is a smidge off for a paternal love..but reguardless, the words say the same exact thing: I'm not going anywhere.

I think the music, the simplicity in the words and the melody itself make this a song for the ages; it's timeless.

I love this song so much it makes me cry sometimes!!!Brittany - Brighton, Tn
i love this song. this is mine and my boyfriends song. i love him with all my heartShay - Oliver Springs, Tn
When I hear the line: 'When I see your smile tears roll down my face' tears roll down MY face! I love this song so muchYumi - Hartlepool, United Kingdom
I agree with alot of what TJ said because I have a close friend that we know we can tell anything to each other. And we are there for each other no matter what the problem is. And once we had almost went out but at the time she was with someone else so it never happened. And since then she has lost those kinds of feelings for me. But i still feel the same even though I'm with someone else now.Trayc - Lawrenceville, Ga
bahahahaha the other night my roommate was singing this song to his girlfriend on the phone....i laughed so hard i cried. the end.Jon - Mishawaka, In
this was mine and my ex boyfriends song it makes me cry because he told me he would do anything for me and that he would never hurt me but then turned and cheated on me. i cant listen to this song with cryingRemy - Omaha, Ne
This is me and my fiance's song.
I think that it's about a guy who is in love with a girl who doesn't love him back, or who cheated on him or has a different boyfriend; and he is telling her how much he cares for her no matter what; even if she doesnt love him back; and he is willing to die for her; and he will have these feelings no matter what.
(I'm not exactly sure but that's what iI always have thought)
Kelly - Terryville, Ct
I think that this song is about a boy who is in love wiht a girl. He believes that they are supposedly soulmates and they will never leave eachother even if something terrible happens to them. Hence the "I'll be there for you through it all even if saving you sends me to heaven."Kelso - Why?!?, Ca
This song really means a lot to me. I was introduced to it last year and I've fallen in love with it ever since. The lyrics have really appealed to me, since I have a boyfriend and he means business. He has literally been there whenever I've fallen or tripped on something. I'm clumsy! Anyway, we both love each other a whole lot and I don't think anything can separate us.Rebekah - West Palm Beach, Fl
i love this song and i think this song would definately go good with the new books and movie Twilight and the other 3 by stephenie meyerTiffany - Batavia, Ny

But thanks to him i have this song this one song that is just for us to i love Jose with every inch of my heart and to me that is what this song is about true love!... then again it is what YOU get out of it!

To me, this song is not a boyfriend girlfriend love song. It means so much more to me. It was played at my best friends, (who is also my dad) funeral. If you listen to the lyrics and how the melody and voice combine into one, you'll see how amazing and meaningful this song actually is.
Through this song, I'm telling my daddy that I love him with all of my heart and even though the rest of the world has already turned their backs on him, I could never do that.

i love this song to as the other do.it introduce of my bestfriend who i love most(without his knowing)when he sang this song i feel comfortable,mostly when he look at me and says that song is for me!but it is only a dream that he can be ther through it all,coz i feel our closeness is only for a friend but for me it is not,i fall for him i dont know when or where and what happen.i only know that i feel comfortable when we are together and sang this song during our bonding moment!!Amor - Makati City, Philippines
This song was alright for me. The lyrics are extremely general and lacking...spark. The thing that makes this song really worth listening to is rather the actual music than the lyrics. The melody is what brings the lyrics to life. During the bridge the melody does a sort of "triplethe thrid" thing or whatever where the notes become more minor melodic. the music brings this deep sad feeling into your soul, and I think that is why most people enjoy listening to it. And because of the mood of the song and the impliment of the lyrics the song is rather about a boyfriend and/or girlfriend relationship. Where the narrator begins saying, "use me as you will/pull my strings just for a thrill" thats part of where I get that bf/gf realationship pull and push. And the whoa oh oh's just give the whole song an overtone of agonization more found in that type of relationship. Oh and a reason the lyrics are lackiing is because of the constant really cheap rymes. plus it really has no set meter to give it that umph. The singer does rather shout the song at the listener, giving it a more spondaic tone. But I definately agree that if you want to get lost in a song, this is the one to do it.Anna - Detroit, Mi
This song is awesome.I love the words he uses to show how much that girl means to him.This is a great love songRay - Geneva, Al
I love this song.
The song is about a person who loves someone else so much and they promise that no matter what happens they are there for them. when it says
"seasons are changing
and waves are crashing" est. it means that even in the worst situations they would do anything in there power to protect them no matter what happens to them. this person loves the other so much that they are willing to risk it all so the person they love the most can live a happy and safe life.
when the song says
"use me as you will
pull my strings just for a thrill
and i know i'll be okay
though my skies are turning grey".
this means that the person can use someone that loves them they can hurt them and make them feel bad but no matter what they will always be there alive or dead.
This song is a promise from me to my best friend.
i love you xxx

It was Originally Titled "The Acoustic Song" and said "I'll Stand Up For You Forever" instead of with you. If you look in the lyric book of their CD 'Don't You Fake It' you will see the title, "The Acoustic Song". The original version also did not feature the vocal part between the first chorus and second verse ("It's Okay...") and the band did not sing the chorus up the octave.Aaron - New Hampton, Ia
