"Justify (Feat. Jennifer Karr)" as written by Jennifer Merle Karr, Andre Tanneberger and Alexander Perls Rousmaniere....
At a time, in situations
When you want a thing more than you should
You would fall, you would crumble
By picking up the pieces from the storm

That was when you said you least expect it
That was when you asked, "How did we get this far?" So far
That was when I wanted to correct it
But I guess there's nothing wrong with being wrong at all

And I can't do it any other way
Repeat and do it all the same way
And I won't justify
One more time

And I can't do it any other way
Repeat every single word we said
And I won't justify
One more time

And it's fine to complicate it
Complicated's all I've ever known
I was there, did you see me?
Frozen in a flash, put on the wall

Now is when I guess I least expect it
But I will never ask, "How did we get this far?" My God
Even if I doubt for just a second
I can still find the right in being wrong, so wrong

And I can't do it any other way
Repeat and do it all the same way
And I won't justify
One more time

And I can't do it any other way
Repeat every single word we said
And I won't justify
One more time

    General CommentI think "shit happens" is a great description for this song, ha. :)

    Although its like everyone was aware of the conflict, as she was too even though others may not believe she was phased by the 'wrong' she committed. "I was there did you see me? frozen in a flash put on the wall."

    "But i guess theres nothing wrong with being wrong." After she commits a wrong, apparently someone else thinks its okay to commit one as well and get away with it. She made a mistake and realizes it, the other person(s) believe her to be such a good person to not make mistakes that now that she has, they no longer have to live up to her expectations maybe?

    General CommentAre you guys serious? The meaning of this song is pretty obvious.

    "At a time, in situations
    When you want a thing more than you should."

    This "thing" is to take it to a romantic level with someone whom you have feelings for.

    "You would fall, you would crumble
    By picking up the pieces from the storm."

    You would be devastated by the response you got.

    "That was when you said 'You least expect it.'
    That was when you asked how did we get this far? So far.
    That was when I wanted to correct it,
    But I guess there's nothing wrong with being wrong. At all."

    That was when the other person rebuffed the singer as if to say, how did we get this far as though you have feelings and I really don't have feelings. That's when the singer wants to correct her misapprehension -- her mistake -- about the intentions of the guy that she viewed in a totally different light. But of course, the singer is saying there's nothing "wrong with being wrong" -- at all, meaning it's okay to take a chance and be wrong about someone; there's nothing wrong about being wrong. The guy didn't expect her to confess her feelings for him; alas, "that was when you said you least expect it."

    "And now is when I guess I'll least expect it.
    But I will never ask how did we get this far . My god.
    Even if I doubt for just a second
    I can still find the right in being wrong. So wrong."

    The singer wouldn't question the circumstances that led to the situation, even if doubt creeps in for a second, she can still justify her feelings and choices.

    Ultimately, the guy was either totally caught off guard by her confronting him about a possible romance, or the guy kind of cut things off when they were proceeding too fast for his liking. That is my interpretation of it.

    General CommentThis song sounds like it means that they were once in a relationship and it just ended unexpectedly. The girl would still do it over again with the same method, not changing anything

    General CommentShit happens. Thats what it means. When it happens you got to deal with it because its what happened and the new that's coming will be accepted as well.
