"I Have Been Right All Along" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Nash Breen, Peter James Decicco and Anthony Diionno....
Now I'm hiding behind your staircase
Waiting to tell you something
You will never believe
I've got a lot to tell you about me
If won't go over well
Well I don't care

You can't turn off
That you're dead
You just deal with it

Thought I was dreaming
My heart stopped beating
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you
I've got a secret
You won't believe it
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you

I see the time line of you whole life
Well I admit that I'm not more
Than a scratch I left behind
But there's the point you can't slim away from
I know you feel
It won't let you go

You can't turn off
That you're dead
You just deal with it
(deal with it)

Thought I was dreaming
My heart stopped beating
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you
I've got a secret
You won't believe it
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you

The ghost of what I left behind is
Tracking me right back next to you

Believe me
It's the truth I swear
Believe me
It's the truth I swear

Deal with it

Thought I was dreaming
My heart stopped beating
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you
I've got a secret
You won't believe it
Well I got this feeling
That I was put here for you

Thought I was dreaming
(i was put here for you)
My heart stopped beating
Well I got this feeling
(i was put here just for you)
I've got a secret
(i was put here for you)
You won't believe it
Well I got this feeling
(i was put here just for you)
Just for you

    General CommentFor some reason I feel a "City of angels" scene here.
    "You cant turn off that you're dead
    you just deal with it
    thought i was dreaming
    when my heart stopped beating
    But i got this feeling...
    that i was put here for you
    I've got a secret
    and you won't believe it
    But i got this feeling ...
    that i was put here for you"

    He's dead, and found a way to communicate with her, but knows she won't believe it.

    General CommentI think it's about change. He's been away from this girl for a long, and he's changed a lot since they last saw each other. But he did it for her, but is still afraid she might not like the change. ("I've got a lot to tell you about me That wont go over well...well i dont care")

    The "you can't turn off that you're dead" part, I think means that he can't change back. What he used to be, and who he is now are two different people. He can't change that. And if he did, he wouldn't feel like him. The old him is gone.


    Orrr, second thought, he might have changed to impress other people. (Like in Remember to Feel Real) But the girl didn't like the change, so she stopped hanging out with him. And that was a big loss for her and he knows that.

    General CommentIt All Makes Sense!!!!... I've been trying to interpret this whole album forever and after reading comments from other songs I've finally figured it out!.... What I Think About This Song: He Was Regreting His Suicide Because It Was A Rash Decision, Until He Finally Realized It Was What Was Meant To Be So She Could Move On In Her Life With Someone Else But Everything He Did (The Suicide And Suches) Will Make Her The Person She Will/Is Becoming.... Okay I Hope I'm Not Way off Base, All The Other Comments Are From Forever Ago But I Just Discovered This Band Like 6 Months Ago lol

    General CommentWow afs has even said what this album was about. And yet stupid kids still can't figure it out.
    The whole album has a suicide/regret meaning behind it.
    He committed suicide because a love was lost and he knew he couldn't go on without it.
    The rest of the album is about him regretting it, because its nothing like what everyone puts it out to be.

    Song MeaningThe narrator follows her back to her house and sits behind her stairs, convincing himself that he needs to move on.
