Don't You Go

Album: Future Hearts (2015)


  • This song is about a crazy week of debauchery in Ocean City, Maryland, in 2006 involving teenagers about to graduate from high school. Among the partiers were the four young men who comprise All Time Low. It was there that Alex Gaskarth, Jack Barakat, Zack Merrick and Rian Dawson decided that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives playing music. Gaskarth told Kerrang!, "It's almost a throwback to the So Wrong, It's Right era. It sounds like a song about a one night stand, but the song is actually saying, "I don't want a one night stand, I want this to happen every single night.' It's more about our relationship with music and touring and doing what we do."
