Dead Wrong Lyrics

If only I knew what I know

I'd make it a point to say so

To everyone that got me here

And everyone that made it

Clear I was dead wrong all along

You said it for my sake

That I would not lose my way

When I was astray...

    This song is about a person who went though a really hard time , pushed his friends away for what he thought were the right reasons. He is crediting these friends or these people who made it clear he was dead wrong when he was “ astray” when he was going down the wrong road but still keeping his word he thinks he did it for the right reasons. The person he is crediting was worried he might actually be correct and doing what he was for all the right reasons so for his sake he said he was wrong , he was astray and going down the wrong path.

    I take the saying you were dead wrong, that the person he is taking to was completely wrong in their thinking, I used this term when I told a ex-girl friend she was dead wrong saying I did not love her. My intentions were that she was wrong in her thinking.

    The singer talks about being dead wrong...all along. He thought that everyone knew his point of say, when they didn't. "You said it for my sake/So I would not lose my way/When I was astray" Someone told him he was dead wrong for his sake, and then later in the song at the very end "You said it for my sake/So I would not lose my way/Did I really lose my way?/Or are you afraid?" This probably means that the person that said it was afraid that he was actually right the whole time. A little confusing, but it makes sense when you think about it.
