Sometimes you walk by the goods ones
'Cause you're trying too hard, too hard to see them
And sometimes you don't find the right lines
'Cause you're trying, too hard, too hard to hear them
But you know what it feels like, 'cause you're like me
And you won't give up

Till an all time love
'Cause nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me

Some days you're too set in your ways
And you forget to shut up, shut up and listen
And some days you just have to misplace all your mistakes
Somewhere that you won't miss them
So stop lying that you're fine, cause you're like me
And you can't give up

Till an all time love
'Cause nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me

I don't believe that it's a failure
I don't believe that it's a fault
'Cause if everything were plain sailing
Oh, tell me what would there be left to exalt

But an all time love
'Cause nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me

I want an all time love
'Cause nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me

    General CommentGreat song. To me it means that he wants a serious relationship with someone, and not just a fling.

    General CommentI just dont believe this song only has one comment. Its one of the most tender, beautiful songs I've ever heard, and its by Will Young? Strange feeling, but yeah, its amazing, and proves he has an amazing singing voice. He's set out in this song exactly what everyone is REALLY looking for too.
    Beautiful, as I said.

    General CommentSt Vs records are coming on the radio thick and fast heres one I've liked since I first heard it in Jan 2006. Its not Dylan but read the lyrics and give it a chance.
    A modern classic from Will Young methinks and its only got 2 comments so far. Time will make it a classic take my word for it 'Mystic Meg' AKA IreneXY

    The video is also excellent and I always thought it was a guy whos been in love, been dumped and is now stalking his lover at a art exhibition but I've obviously just seen a bit of it heres what the man himself (WY) says about the video

    "I love this video, I think All Time Love and Friday's Child are the best two videos I've ever done. They are so clever in their execution and what I love about the All Time Love video is that it's bolstered the song and given it a character which has made it even stronger. It's also the most interesting video I've done because it throws up a lot of different things.

    "The story is that I am this student leader of a group of artists, poets, political activists - bohemian people with free ideas and free ideals. I am in court for a variety of things that you're not quite sure of but certainly a crime of passion - I love the ambiguity of it. There are hints of running against modern-day capitalism or a controlling society where we are all robots.

    "It's the idea of a guy who is saying, 'Remember who you are, remember your soul'. It really resonated and touched on a lot of things that I believe in.

    "I really enjoyed making it and I think it's beautifully shot. I love the courtroom scene and the one with the judges eating ice cream: it's an important, seminal case and yet the judges are walking in with ice creams, it shows what their thoughts are on the legal process.

    "I think it's great and I'm very pleased with it - as you can tell!"

    CLASS !

    General CommentOops my cut and paste pasted a bit more than I expected. I didn't see the rubbish at the bottom.

    Please ignore the rubbish after IreneXY

    General CommentWill Young has proved that he is not just a lucky guy who won a television singing competition, he has real talent. this is one of his best songs. the haunting tune lingers in your mind long after hearing it and i believe the meaning is about how he is frustrated and has not had luck in love and now is not just content with anything less than an all time love. the lyrics are great and there is a real sense of him fighting against being alone and he gets his listener to understand what he feels and be on his side.

    General Commentthis song is gorgeous. who doesn't want to find their 'all time love'? I think it is about being single and alone, but refusing to settle..
