"A Party Song (The Walk of Shame)" as written by Matt Squire and All / Low....
I took a walk for the very first time
On the dark side of the dance floor
Lit a match just to heat things up
But I got more than I bargained for

Mixed drinks mixed feelings of elation
I should have known it was a one night invitation

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
You walk around with my heart on your sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now our time ran out

I took an oath but I'm giving it up
You didn't have to see things my way
Nothing more than a casual ****
Isn't that just how we operate?

Let's drink to feelings of temptation
You and I we're an overnight sensation

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
I walk around with your heart on my sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now our time ran out

Outside the brake light's started to dim
I feel the tension that's been pulling us in
And then we do it again so we can feel all right
Falling in love for the night

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
You walk around with my heart on your sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now

Our time ran out our time ran out
Our time ran out our time ran out
Our time ran out

    General Commenti think it's a bit ridiculous how all time low fans
    just argue about how much they hate their music now.
    if you don't like the band now, move on. seriously.

    i really dig the new album.
    danceable shit, catchy lyrics.
    and i can still relate to it.


    i think it's about a tight relationship
    that got bad. turned into a friend with benefits relationship.
    and he's trying to move on.

    General Commentpeople are freaking out too much
    yes we are ALL fanns of all time low.
    so chill, some want other things from them, like to keep them to theirselves
    .. which is understandable. its hard to find great bands, but these guys are excelent
    and you have to realize, they have their own agendas. and theirs for instant
    is to be famous, so we got to respect that
    i do find it annoying that their changing their sound, cus i loved it
    but one thing thats definatly getting to me is, alex's lyrics are becomming meaningless
    some are GREAT! dont gett me wrong. but i miss the passion behind it
    now all thats driving them is fame
    understandble once again
    but it seems like fans dont matter anymore
    they just deal with us instead of enjoying us

    their music is still great and talented,
    just they shouldnt forget about us
    we helped get them where they are today, and im sure none of us want to be forgotten
    so everyone relax, its garinteed more people are gonna join the band wagon(haha)
    so lets all make the best of it. we love them for the same reason,
    their music is great and inspiraring :)

    My Opinionok i'm an ATL fan just like everyone else here.
    but i'm seriously starting to get sick and tired of hearing other fans going on and on about how "their music sucks now" "they're not the same ATL" STFU, seriously.
    they're are still the same 4 guys we fell "in love" with.
    they are POP-PUNK! get that through your skull.
    i'm tired of people saying "they dont sound the same."
    if you were a real ATL fan you would stop bashing them!
    please just do us all a favor and just stop, okay?
    i dont mean to sound like a bitch, but i really am just done with stupid, arrogant people.
    all their music is fun, catchy, and easy to understand.
    their all about having fun and being young and free!
    so please just stop.
    thanks and the song is about a one night stand.

    General CommentOK for all the little bitches out there about them changing their music and everything, don't you think they would want to experiment with other types besides the same ones?
    And they aren't doing music for just their fans, they're doing it because they love music.

    Does an artist paint the same thing over and over?
    Do florists grow the same flower forever?
    Then why should bands play the same type of music over and over?

    And just because you're 13 and listen to them doesn't mean that you only care about how they look.

    This band is awesome, it's just a bonus of how they look.

    General CommentI think its "I lit a match just to light things up, but I got more than I bargained for." its the same song they were recording in the video blogs on youtube. If you wanna check it out search "all time low recording" on youtube it takes a bit of searching but its there. I'm so pumped for this album.
