"All Along" as written by and Jesse Neal Barish....
All Along
Deep inside secret's burning
I Should have known all the while what's true
I went along, to fool myself

Can't go on, I can't escape it
All along
I think I really knew
It was there in the words unspoken

All along
Still believed in you
Now I stand here betrayed and broken
Close my eyes from the burning

All along all the while it's true
Take it on, or turn your back
Either way, you can't escape it

    General CommentLooks like his gut was telling him she was gonna dump him or she is cheating but he went along to fool himself and close his eyes, hope it isnt happening but in the end he is left betrayed and broken cause it is happening.

    General CommentDex is a great songwriter, he is one of the few artists anymore that can write a break-up song that isn't annoying.

    General CommentCome Out Swinging isn't a break up song, but I know what you mean.
