"All This Time" as written by David Arthur Garcia, Benjamin Glover and Brittany Waddell....
You self destructive, little girl
Pick yourself up, don't blame the world
So you screwed up
But you're gonna be okay

Now call your boyfriend and apologise
You pushed him pretty far away last night
He really loves you
You just don't always love yourself

And all this time
Oh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
La la la la la

Think all the mean girls that pulled your hair
Are barefoot now and pregnant dear
And you write pop songs
And get to travel around the world

And all this time
Oh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
La la la la la

So you've had some detours
Some stupid men
Now we know what not to do again
Besides you lucked out, finally

And all this time (all this time)
Oh all this time (all this time)
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
La la la la la

    General CommentFirst of all, it's not 'but sometimes you don't push' it is 'just sometimes need a push'
    I think the song is about Maria and about her youth, when she was unhappy. I think she means: 'so look where I am now, everything turned out good'

    General CommentI also think it's 'and get to travel round the world' instead of 'and get in trouble round the world'. This also fits the verse better as in, they're all pregnant and stuck and I get to travel around the world.

    I love this song, it's really a pick-me-up song :)

    General CommentYou self destructive,
    Little girl.
    Pick yourself up,
    Don't blame the world.
    So you screwed up,
    But you're gonna be okay.

    Now call your boyfriend,
    And apologize.
    You pushed him pretty far
    Away last night.
    He really loves you,
    You just don't always love yourself.

    And all this time,
    Ohh-oh, all this time,
    You have had it in you,
    You just sometimes need a push.
    (La la la la la)
    All this time,
    Ohh-oh, all this time,
    You have had it in you,
    You just sometimes need a push.

    Think all the mean girls,
    That pulled your hair,
    Are barefoot now,
    And pregnant dear,
    And you write pop songs,
    And get to travel around the world.

    And all this time,
    Ohh-oh, all this time,
    You have had it in you,
    You just sometimes need a push.
