All At Once Lyrics - The Fray

Review The Song (12)



There are certain people you just keep coming back to
She is right in front of you
You begin to wonder could you find a better one
Compared to her now she's in question

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there

Looking for the right one you line up the world to find
Where no questions cross your mind
But she won't keep on waiting for you without a doubt
Much longer for you to sort it out

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there
sponsored links
Maybe you want it maybe you need it,
Maybe it's all you're running from,
Perfection will not come

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes
We'd never know what's wrong without the pain
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you've started to compare to someone not there
Maybe you want it maybe you need it
Maybe it's all you're running from
Perfection will not come

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you had her maybe you lost her to another
To another

Awesome. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/14/10

I popped this CD in my car the other day and realized that, after listening to this song dozens of times in the past, I'd never really paid attention to the lyrics. And I really feel like they relate to my life right now.

I like [or USED to like, maybe] this guy I work with, and he seemed to like me too. He asked me on a date that never happened. We made plans to see a movie on a Friday night, but he didn't contact me all week long, and finally on Friday at 7 PM he texted that he had to do something else, and he was "sorry."

Last Monday he said we would go on a bike ride and take pictures in the mountains on Saturday [as in yesterday]. Again...he didn't talk to me all week and yesterday passed by without a word from him. I have felt extremely hurt by his behavior, and confused as to whether or not he likes me. But I think I'm beginning to accept that he's not really interested. Maybe he has his own issues to sort out before he's ready for a relationship...I don't know. But as this song goes: "She won't keep on waiting for you without a doubt much longer for you to sort it out." I think I should take a hint and move on.

This is my song to him. :) I've been the friend for a year, and he's had multiple girlfriends but I've always been the one on the side to be "thought about". The line:

"But she won't keep on waiting for you without a doubt
Much longer for you to sort it out"

just seems to jump out at me every time I listen to this and think about him. But I always DO keep on waiting... :\ I just wish I could get to the end line where it says "Maybe you lost her to another"...



My take on All At Once | Reviewer: MDW | 3/12/09

To me this song is about a guy who has a friend who has always been there for him and has been a rock in his life. He has had failed relationships and keeps returning to this friend for support and the friend is always there for him. He starts to wonder if the friend could be the one for him, but is constantly comparing to others. I think with really good friends, you reach this level of comfort that doesn't feel "new" anymore. When you meet a new person, that initial attraction is what feel so good, when it is gone is when realationships begin to fail. The friend is considered not an option becasue of this lack of newness. However, other people (the crowd) see what he doesn't see, that the friend is right for him. It has always been in his mind subconsciencely, but now he is actually thinking about it, giving it deep thought and consideration. He is trying to figure out if her wants her or needs her, it is both. The end of the song is him coming to the realization that it might very well be too late, he could have waited too long to make this discovery.



meaning | Reviewer: matt | 11/29/08

i think this song means that he wants to open up to this girl he really likes but is always waiting for someone that is totally perfect. and when he meets this girl she makes him think if there is someone that is perfect. he thinks of everyone else he has turned down that probably deserved him but he was still searching for the perfect one. and he doesnt want to make that same mistake again.

thats what i think at least. anyway i love this song.



Great Song! | Reviewer: khfan9495 | 10/2/07

"Maybe you want her, maybe you need her
Maybe you had her, maybe you lost her to another;
To another"

Dang! That's cool! Cause that's how I feel! I don't know if I should tell this girl I like how I feel. And this song makes me think about it. Maybe I will tell her how I feel next time. Thanks to The Fray for writing this song! You guys rock! Cause you guys are the best!
