Album: So Wrong It's Right (2007)

  • He woke up from dreaming and put on his shoes
    Started making his way past two in the morning
    He hasn't been sober for days

    Leaning now into the breeze
    Remembering Sunday, he falls to his knees
    They had breakfast together
    But two eggs don't last
    Like the feeling of what he needs

    Now this place seems familiar to him
    She pulled on his hand with a devilish grin
    She led him upstairs, she led him upstairs
    Left him dying to get in

    Forgive me, I'm trying to find
    My calling, I'm calling at night
    I don't mean to be a bother
    But have you seen this girl?
    She's been running through my dreams
    And it's driving me crazy, it seems
    I'm going to ask her to marry me

    Even though she doesn't believe in love
    He's determined to call her bluff
    Who could deny these butterflies?
    They're filling his gut

    Waking the neighbors, unfamiliar faces
    He pleads though he tries
    But he's only denied
    Now he's dying to get inside

    Forgive me, I'm trying to find
    My calling, I'm calling at night
    I don't mean to be a bother
    But have you seen this girl?
    She's been running through my dreams
    And it's driving me crazy, it seems
    I'm going to ask her to marry me

    The neighbors said she moved away
    Funny how it rained all day
    I didn't think much of it then
    But it's starting to all make sense
    Oh, I can see now that all of these clouds
    Are following me in my desperate endeavor
    To find my whoever, wherever she may be

    I'm not coming back (forgive me)
    I've done something so terrible
    I'm terrified to speak (I'm not calling, I'm not calling)
    But you'd expect that from me
    I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt, now the rain is just (You're driving me crazy, I'm)
    Washing you out of my hair and out of my mind
    Keeping an eye on the world,
    From so many thousands of feet off the ground, I'm over you now
    I'm at home in the clouds, and towering over your head

    Well I guess I'll go home now
    I guess I'll go home now
    I guess I'll go home now
    I guess I'll go home Writer/s: Alexander William Gaskarth, Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Zachary Steven Merrick

  • Amanda from VirginiaI heard this song was written by Zack Merrick and it’s about falling in love with an Angel who disappears and he searches all over town and can’t find her… until he realizes she’s been with him all along.
  • Jay Ivan from Belize Central AmericaAt the end of it all, everyone have their own theory. Instead of trying to figure about someone else life, choose what it means to you and let that sink in. let that be your own personal reason.
  • Gabe from Amarillo, Tx@ashley - If this song is indeed about Meg from Meg and Dia, then that maybe explains the song that they made called "I'm Going Away." You guys should listen to it, it makes sense!
  • Lasse from -, Germany@Taylor from russia..it's not about a girl who died. and lullabies isnt about his brother commiting suicide..don't believe everything people say..alex stated in a interview that he died because of some natural reason..and he was shocked that people just make up facts (like that he killed himself)
  • Nikole from Gresham, OrAlex kind of explains in an interview that Remembering Sunday is about the same girl as in the song Vegas. She didn't pass away. She was just on a plane. Even Matt Flyzik thought the girl had passed away.
    It's at the end of this interview:

  • Calli from Boston, Ma@Bridget this song is definitely not about the both of them committing suicide. It's about a breakup. It's not about Juliet Simms either, she just sings in the song. The lyrics "So many feet off the ground" is about planes. Also, @Bren... You can call a plane home if that's where you practically live like music artist do. You can call any place home.
  • Ashley from Oshkosh, AlThis song is about Meg Frampton from Meg and Dia. Alex Gaskarth said on stage at one of their shows last year that Vegas was about her. This song is also about her. Juliet Simms just does the female vocals in the song. And no, it isn't about anyone dying. I know a lot of people think that based on the lyrics, but its about her leaving to go back home after they spent a few days or weeks together on tour for the Warped Tour.
  • Taylor from Moscow, Russia FederationMy cousin told me that this was about his girlfriend that got into a car accident and died, the song Lullabies is about Alex's brother who committed suicide and Alex found him.
  • Carli from Pemberville, Oh@aaron her name is juliet simms. and i so thought this was about a girl commiting suicide! what the crap, XP
  • Cami from Gap, Paalex meets a girl at warp tour and decides to date her cuz they hung out all day at warp tour. after they made love for the first time he wanted to ask her to marry him but he had problems with love/commitment, so without alex knowing, she moved to russia so he wouldnt ask her to marry him.
  • Bren from Pandi, Philippineseven it wasn't supposed to be a song about death.. it means so.. the girl said shes at home at the clouds.. can you call a plane home if you will mean that to be a plane?? and the last passage of the man is the he is going home to.. so he will follow the girl.. means.. he will kill himself too.. right??
  • Rachel from Saratoga Springs, NyThis song is actually about a girl Alex met at Warped Tour. They hung out all day, and then once the tour was over, Alex bought a plane ticket to see the girl, and she wanted nothing to do with him.
  • Nikkeya from Los Angeles, CaMaybe it doesn't have anything to do with dying, more with the internal strugle he's going through while trying to find her. Rain symboliIng sorrow & going into a deep depression from loosing someone he was was in love with. You could never get over sonething like that ...

  • Emilia from Indio, Cai think its about his girlfriend lisa. how they have had an off and on relationship since 2005. and since this song came out in 2007 im sure it was about her
  • Tyler from Indianapolis, InIts Alex Gaskarth and Juliette Simms.
  • Tiana from London, United KingdomAaron - Its Juliette Simms
  • Sarah from Coral Springs, FlWhen asked about the song he said "No she's not dead, This was basically just me venting after the girl was on a plane going away not on her way to heaven" It is also about the same person Alex Gaskarth is writing about in "Vegas".
  • Samantha Gamache from Maple Ridge, BcWhat Beans said, this song has nothing to do with death. Nothing at all.
  • Bridget from Mercer, MeActually it has everything to do with dying. He has a one night stand. He was going to ask her to marry him. She killed herself. (So many thousands of feet off the ground) meaning Heaven. Then he kills himself at the end.
  • Beans from Philadelphia, PaThe song has absolutly nothing to do with anyone dying.
  • Amber from South Jersey, NjThis song is about a guy who finds a girl, and they hook up well have a nice fling. But when he tries to find her, the girl's neighbors say that she isn't there and on his way back the rain (a sign for someone passing but goin to a better place- thats what i heard lol) is pouring down and her voice comes and tells him basically that she killed herself and she feels bad but as the rain falls down im guessing that she hopes the rain will clense him of her and he'll get on with his life like she has........or you can precieve it as the girl doesn't want him no more and he has to get over her........
  • Logan from Elma, WaThis song is actually about a guy that is trying to find a girl he had a one night stand with but she runs away.....this was in an interview with Alex Gaskarth the singer for all time low
  • Jade from Cancun, Mexicoi absolutly love this song. i want to know more details about why this song was written, how the girl died....does anyone know?
  • Paola from Mexico City, MexicoJuliet Simms
  • Aaron from Dunfermline, United KingdomBrilliant Song! But Who Is It That Is Singing At The End Whats The Name(s)?
