"All Time Low" as written by and Edward James/mac Drewett....
Praying won't do it
Hating won't do it
Drinking won't do it
Fighting won't knock you out
Of my head

Hiding won't hide it
Smiling won't hide it
Like I ain't tried it
Everyone's tried it now
And failed somehow

So when you gonna let me
When you gonna let me out
Out

And if you know
How do you get up from an all time low
I'm in pieces
Seems like peace is
The only thing I'll never know
How do you get up
Get up

'Cause driving won't do it
Flying won't do it
Denying won't do it
Crying won't drown it out
What you said

When I'm standing on the yellow line
Waiting at the station
Or I'm late for work
A vital presentation
If you call me now girl
Without reservation
I would try to break through

But if you know
How do you get up from an all time low
I'm in pieces
It seems like peace is
The only thing I never know
How do you get up from an all time low
I can't even find a place to start
How do I choose between my head and heart
Till it ceases I never know, know
How do you get up from an all time low

A low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low
Can you hear me
A low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low
Can't you hear me
A low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low
Can't you hear me
A low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low, a low

And if you know
How do you get up from an all time low
I'm in pieces
It seems like peace is
The only thing I never know
How do you get up from an all time low
I can't even find a place to start
How do I choose between my head and heart
Till it ceases I never know
How do you get up from an all time low

I can't even find a place to start
How do I choose between my head and heart
Till it ceases I never know
How do you get up from an all time low

    General Commentfirst to comment, i heard the song ..then seen the video and was gutted at how chhesey they are.

    shame for them to be marketed that way.

    I think the songs about feeling at the like your at the bottom and theres no way to pick yurself up.

    Wether that be, you just lost somone u love, or u are just in a rutt of life , cant get a job etc

    All time low can be lots of things, its how ever it relates to you, personally i think its wrote in the love way..like u have just lost ur gf/bf and you cant get over it

    General CommentI heard them say what the song meant and if you listen to the lyrics you can see how it means that.
    The WANTED said that the song was about when a girl is on you mind all the time and you cant get anything right and you dont know how to stop it, in other words "how do you get up from an all time low?" I absolutely love this song and the meaning of it its really good!

    Song MeaningI agree with XxVoodoodollxX!

    It's about a guy who's got this one special girl who's constantly on his mind. Yup, this song's pretty self-explanatory.

    General Commentlooks good !!!.....one question:" How do you get up from an all time low?" is a demand for consolation (the boy sees himself in "an all time low ") or is a meaningfull sentence from someone like Mr.Darcy (can you remember his first suggestion to elisabeth?).... or what?!!!
