All Alright Lyrics

And it's all alright.
I guess it's all alright.
I got nothing left inside of my chest,
But it's all alright.
Yeah, it's all alright.
I guess it's all alright.
I got nothing left inside of my chest,
But it's all alright.

And I...

    I think in the beggining,
    " I got the call soon as the day hit night.
    As soon as the headlights lit up the Westside.
    I stopped the car and came outside
    Cause I know that tone.
    I remember the first time
    we wished upon parallel lines.
    Waiting for a friend to call
    and say they're still alive.
    I've given everyone I know
    a good reason to go.
    I was surprised you stuck around
    long enough to figure out"

    Basically refers to someone getting into a car accidents, someone he obviously cared for and they 'stuck around' unlike other people who have just walk out of his life.

    Then by the end of the song,
    " And I know, know, know
    You've fallen from the sun.
    Crashing through the clouds.
    I see you burning out.
    And I know, know, know
    that I put up a front
    But maybe, just this once,
    let me keep this one."

    Maybe symbolizing his friends is reaching the end (I see you burning out)

    and he is pleading (let me keep this one.) for his friends life, because this person means alot, this person didn't give up on him or leave.

    The chorus seems very saracastic and sollum.

    " Yeah, it's all alright.
    I guess it's all alright.
    I got nothing left inside of my chest,
    but it's all alright."

    saying, it's fine, I've lost everything but that's alright!

    and then,
    " I never claimed to be more than a one-night stand
    I've given everyone I know
    a good reason to go.
    But I came back with the belief
    that everyone I love is gonna leave me"

    (I've never claimed to be more than a one night stand) makes me believe this "friend" was a love interest, then (i came back with the belief that everyone I love is gonna leave me) He has trust issues. I'll keep it short, or atleast try! This is my favorite song on Some Nights, and it deserved more than a two line analysis! :)

    Honestly, the lyrics "wishing on parallel lines" sounds, to me, like 9/11. He's hoping that his friend will call to say they're still alive after the attack.

    I think its about a guy reflecting on his life. he's ended having a relationship he never wanted. when the song says "I got your call as soon as the day hit night" is him reciving a call from someone he was once in a relationship that he wished had continued on but left because he never wanted to turn it into anything but regrets it.

    I think "wished upon parallel lines" is a pregnancy test. 2 parallel lines is a negative on most tests.

    This is bviously a song about a pregnancy scare. .__. "Wish upon parallel lines" A pregnancy test, "I never claimed to be more than a one night stand" They didn't plan the pregnancy. DUh.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think it's about 9/11 because in the bridge, police sirens are fire engines are in the background. "Waiting for a friend to call and say they're still alive..." The song is also placed in New York (references to West Side, cabs, etc.)

    Everything just is how it is. It is what it is. The love of his life is mentally ill. Everyday he waits for the call that she's gone. He remembers doing this before with "parallel lines" on her wrist. Then waiting to know she's alive.

    They've given everyone a reason to leave them and give up on them and they understand that.

    After the incident he thinks about how it haunts him and he never meant to become "more than a one-night stand". He thinks about how everything comes to an end and the bitterness of everyone ends up alone. It is what it is.

    Hey knows the pain she goes through day to day with her illness. He knows how horrible it was.
    He understands that but is just begging for a moment about him. He puts up a front but he's begging to just give him just a moment to keep.

    I think he says everything with the one line "I was surprised you stuck around long enough to figure out..." It's taken him through hell and back but he stuck with her and now maybe things can be all alright

    This song is run through with low self-esteem and depression. The reference to "knowing that tone" and wondering if someone is still alive I think is more about a friend who is prone to suicidal thoughts and this person goes off and you aren't sure if this is going to be the time that he/she takes his/her life. The narrator understands because he also suffers from it, which makes him self-centered and unapproachable, and ends up pushing everyone away. But there's one person who stuck around. The one night stand that he expected to leave but hasn't.

    I am not a pop music fan, but I got this album for my kids and I think I listen to it more than they do at this point (Partially because there are some 4-letter words). Yes I got it on CD, I'm a dinosaur. The album was much deeper and darker than I'd expected.

    I think this guy has treated people (women) poorly and disregards their feelings in the past. Uses them for one night stands. But he regrets it now because it's almost like karma when he finally meets someone he cares about and needs she leaves. So karma comes around because of all the things he did to others this one special person doesn't stick around.

    I think that the song means, he got a call, which might be a break-up call, and this call reminds him of a similar feeling he got when a car accident happened in the past..., in general a feeling of "loosing someone"

    Waiting for a friend to call
    And say they're still alive."

    He was driving in in the city at dusk when he recieved a call. He could tell by the tone what it was about (a friend of his has been involved in am accident). He pulled the car over. Wishing on parallel lines is literal. Hes on a road wishing for his friend to not be dead. He wants him to call to say that he isnt dead.

    i think of "i got nothin left inside of my chest, but it's all alright" as him dying but he is ok with that because he has the feeling that everbody he loves is gonna leave him someday(die)anyway so it's ok for him to go too.(die)

    A guy is used to being left alone, and he's fine with it. He has lost all his self esteem.
