All Time Low – Jasey Rae lyrics
Lights out,
I still hear the rain,
These images that fill my head,
Now keep my fingers from making mistakes
,
Tell my voice what it takes,
To speak up,
Speak up,
And keep my conscience clean when I wake.

Don't make this easy,
I want you to mean it,
Jasey. (say you'll mean it)
You're dressed to kill,
I'm calling you out, (don't waste your time on me)

Now there's an aching in my back;
A stabbing pain that says I lack,
The common sense and confidence,
To bring an end to promises,
That I make in times of desperate conversation,
Hoping my night could be better than this in the end.
Just say when.

Don't make this easy,
I want you to mean it,
Jasey. (say you'll mean it)
You're dressed to kill,
I'm calling you out, (don't waste your time on me)

I've never told a lie,
And that makes me a liar,
I've never made a bet,
But we gamble in desire,
I've never lit a match,
With intent to start a fire,
But recently the flames,
Are getting out of control
.
Call me a name,
Kill me with words,
Forget about me,
It's what I deserve,
I was your chance,
To get out of this town,
But I ditched the car,
And left you to,

Wait outside,
I hope the air will serve to remind you,
That my heart is as cold as the clouds of your breath,
And my words are as timed as the beating in my chest.

    In my perspective, Jasey Rae revolves around the feelings of guilt and regret of the guy being followed by the song. He's done something so bad to the girl he loves that he couldn't forgive himself, and so he asks the girl to give him what he deserves: forget him and leave him despite their promises to never leave each other's side.
    Unfortunately for him, the girl hangs on and tries to keep this relationship together by forgiving the guy and giving him another chance(thus, holding on to their promise) but the guy doesn't want to go on with the girl having scarred by what he did, so he tells the girl to forget him and leave, reminding the girl that he's worthless and that she shouldn't be wasting time on him.
    By the end of the song, the guy tells her how bad his mistake is and how he regrets what he's done. By the last stanza, he leaves the girl without her knowledge because he couldn't take it anymore, leaving this song as something to remind her of how badly he wanted to end her suffering and pain done for his mistake, and how he hopes that she'll be reminded of how terrible he was so that she could no longer chase him.
    Damn, this is a sad song.

    I think this song is about a guy who realizes that the girl he's with (jasey rae) isn't for him and that he made a mistake being with her. And now he knows they shouldn't be together, and feeds guilty from his feelings about the whole situation, because he's been hiding the fact that they're not meant to be. In the end, he ends up leaving her, in hopes that she'll soon realize that they weren't many to be. And hopes that the act of leaving would make her think that he was just a bad person so that she will have a reason to not want to be with him. And even though jasey rae is an amazing person, she's just not for him. He regrets creating the things between him and jasey, and having to destroy them. But things just never always workout.
    But that's just what I think. ;)

    I think this song is about a guy who was in a relationship without wanting it to get to serious but realizes that she has fallen for him. He notices his mistake and leaves her and town. He is telling her that he never meant for things to get so serious and complicated. He never meant for her to fall in love with him and that she should forget about him because she deserves better and he doesn't believe in love and it was all a lie. Even though deep down he actually has feelings for her even if he doesn't realize them.

    Jasey rae is about a guy who made a girl fall in love with him, he's not the right guy to fall in love with because he's one of those that doesn't believe in "love" and thinks its better to go about life without it but unfortunately he doesn't want to face his own feelings because he loves her too. In the end, he had to leave her because he is simply afraid of the truth and wounded because he left her cold.

    At warped tour yesterday (pittsburgh date) alex said he wrote this song about a girl named jasey and that he had seen her there that day, said hello and it was really awkward.
    I think that they had a thing going on and she just kind of left him hanging. He felt bitter or angry about it because he thought it could go somewhere but it kind of just fell apart.

    To me it's about a guy who left the girl he loved because he didn't think he was good enough for her, and was afraid that their relationship was getting too serious. He didn't want to hurt her, but when he left she thought she did something wrong, and it broke her heart. He wants her to think that he's a bad person, and realize what a jerk he was for leaving, so that she can move on without feeling like it's her fault. But she still loves him, so it's making it hard for him to say goodbye.

    The real jasey rae story.
    First I would like to say, I'm hoping that putting this out there it will stop all the rediculous stories you all make with your imagination. Just think if someone wrote a story about you that was 100% not true and it was put on the internet for everyone to read wouldnt you be upset. So stop acting like you are jaseyrae. You're giving me a bad name.
    In the year 2004 all time low was not signed to a label and none of you knew who they were. They rarely toured, and only stuck around md. So some may have known them but if you did you would know the real story.
    Our local venue in altoona, pa (jaggard church) hosted lots of shows. Ryan wapner the promoter and good friend of mine always seemed to get really good bands to play before they became huge.
    All time low was one of those bands, at a show about 3/4 years ago I met alex gaskarth, my friends at the time were really into band guys I simply just enjoyed the music and had no intentions on talking to alex. But he approached me and we pretty much talked the rest of the night. He had asked me to keep in touch and we continued talking by phone and computer.
    A couple months past and we became really close and were really into eachother. He came back to altoona to play another show and we basically acted like we were dating the whole night and I guess we basically were without the label. But whatever it was so long ago.
    Anyways. That night we partied with them and alex and I spent the whole night watching movies cuddling on the couch. One thing led to another you don't need details and we ended up sleeping together.
    We said I love you, but we were young and obviously he didn't mean it and at the time I did.
    The next day when he left to go back to md. It was a sad goodbye I really liked him.
    I would say for a month after that night we kept talking continuously until one day alex texted me and said "omg this is so cool we are hanging out with paramore and cute is what we aim for, we just got signed to a label! " (this is when paramore wasnt that known as well).
    Needless to say he was pretty busy, but I stopped getting calls. Texts. Emails. And he ignored all mine as well. So basically he just stopped talking to me without an explanation, just left me hanging.
    I was devistated at first. But the sad feeling turned into more of a hateful feeling.
    4 months later they came back to altoona and he acted like nothing happened. Like I shouldnt be mad. But I wasnt about to make a scene so I just never said anything but didn't go around him much.
    That night there was a rumor "alltimelow had a suprise for me" and it ended up being that song.
    Since then I tried to maintain a friendship but I gave up all his fame has gone to his head and he isn't even the same person.
    Soo as of today, I will not go see them and I live in chicago soo I wont run into them.
    Soo in his interviews he will say we are friends, but we really arnt.
    But that pretty much sums up where the song probably came from, nothing glamourous but its true. So I'd appriciate it if you read this and you made up your own story please delete it. Or at least post that its your version not the true story.

    Its about him having a one night stand, but he wants it to be more & it feels like so much more. However, he's not sure if his feelings are real or just a replacement for something else. He's apologizing cuz he's confused & the situation has made a mess of things, because both he & jasey have others in their lives, that they are possibly on the outs with. He's confused about ending his messed up relationship, but not if this affair can leave to real love.

    Such an amazing song. I'm a little late on this post, but o well because it still deserves it! This song is great because it can pull out so many different emotions and feelings in just about anyone. It's relatable, it tells a story, and its honest. Atl is great about this.
    Alex is great at conveying his thoughts and feelings to the crowd. He just sounds like he is geniun(i can't spell:/)
    and! The acoustic version is seriously good.

    This song is about a girl named Jasey, who had a one night stand with Alex, hoping it would turn into something more because she wanted fame. Alex left her as to why it says at the end of the song 'i was your chance to get out of this town, but I ditched the car and left you to wait outside' but he finds it hard to say goodbye so he wants to make her thing hes a bad person.
