"All That We Needed" as written by Tom Higgenson and Shelly Peiken....
If you'd come clean about everything, it would be easy for you, to be sorry.
If you'd see all the possibilities, we might not still be standing where we started.

Oh no, don't let me go for this, don't let me go for this.

I might be a fool, you might be one too.
Maybe we're all that we needed.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but I don't care tonight.
Maybe we're all that we needed.

You'd say we were just a big mistake.
I think it's worth making, worth repeating.
I would say good things come to those who wait,
I would say anything if you'd believe it.

Oh no, don't let me go for this, don't let me go for this.

I might be a fool, you might be one too.
Maybe we're all that we needed.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but I don't care tonight.
Maybe we're all that we needed.

Maybe we're perfect, but not meant to be.
Maybe were more than the light ever seen.
Maybe were not meant to not disagree.
Maybe were crazy baby.

If you'd come clean about everything, it would be easy for you, to be sorry.
If you'd see all the possibilities, we might not still be standing where we started.

Oh no, don't let me go for this, don't let me go for this.

I might be a fool, you might be one too.
Maybe we're all that we needed.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but I don't care tonight.
Maybe we're all that we needed.

Two wrongs don't make a right but I don't care tonight. (Maybe were all that we needed.)
Two wrongs don't make a right but I don't care tonight. (Maybe were all that we needed.)

    General Commenta correction:
    "maybe we're perfect, but not meant to be. *or more alike than we're willing to see* " etc.

    I love this song. meaning is obvious. they broke up, but he doesn't want to accept that they are over and shouldn't have gotten together in the first place, etc. It's so sweet. Plain white t's rock my socks!

    General CommentActually, the introduction is similiar in beat, but slightly different. My boyfriend's a drummer, and he's managed to compare the both and try it out on the drums. Apparently it's similiar, but not exact; some of the beat is off and there's fill-ins in other places that aren't in Dance, Dance - Fall Out Boy.

    As for the song, I think it's alright. Probably not the best out of all of them, but the meaning's is pretty obvious; just like most of the songs that are by the Plain White T's. That's what I seem to love about them; it helps us find a soundtrack to our life... instead of spending hours trying to depict lyrics.

    This isn't a song that I could relate to, but I can see the possibilities of how it could relate to those out there, especially couples who are in the same situation as the one being messaged through the lyrics. As far as the music goes, I think it's got a decent beat; not the kind that'll give me chills, though.

    - Kari.
