Emergency

Album: All We Know Is Falling (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This song, written by Hayley Williams, is about how love is taken for granted and means nothing nowadays, and that relationships are really in emergency status. It was written about a time when a member's parents were about to split up, and they had to watch this happen in front of them as a child with no power to do anything about it. >>

  • Annie from Target, Njwell i thought it was about committing suicide because your heart broken! cause its like "you deservED to be alive" like past tense, so yeah
  • Punkgal from Leeds, United Kingdomsometimes love needs to die... i mean at least Hayley isnt doing anything drastic over it. if writing songs makes her happy and outlets her emotions and anger then good for her... we all need to let go sometimes. by one way or another. her music is her way of coping
  • Nikki from Mishawalka, Ini like crushcrushcrush the best, IN MY OPINON !!!!
  • Hope from Naperville, IlMy favorite song by them! Listen to the crab mix.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnMy fave song on All We Know is Falling. I really feel her anguish.
  • Cadence from Smyrna, TnI've heard poor Hayley talking about going through her parents fighting then divorcing. When I hear this song that's what I think it's about. Her watching her parents love die as a kid. She said she stood in between them as her and her mum went to leave and screaming shut up! I know what that's like.
