I wasn’t an All Time Low fan since day one. As a child I lived a protected and sheltered life, so that meant no MTV and whatever I watched it was censored and it a swear word was heard from the TV was instantly banned from my house. It wasn’t until 2008 when I finally discovered All Time Low, it was by watching a music video on MTV. I fell instantly in love and decided to listen to other songs. Nothing Personal was my favorite, but there was three other albums I had to listen too.
Lullabies was the easiest song for me to relate to, the night I listened to it and found the truth behind the words, was the same night my older brother attempted suicide. Luckily my brother is still alive today. Months later my parents went through some rough times, and it effected everyone. That’s when I started cutting myself. Listening to Jasey Rae, and Therapy made me put the razor down, and I finally felt peace in my life. Knowing that someone out there in this world understood me, and knew exactly how I felt made my world go the right way. I still cut myself, but not as often. I also went through a suicidal stage, but depression runs in my family, so it wasn’t too powerful for me to actually attempt anything.
It amazes me to know that only four band members living their dream can save a life. All Time Low saved mine. I was born and Catholic and I am still one today, I’m not proud of it. And as a Catholic I have been taught to thank others for what they have done for you. So I thank all of you tumblrs out there for not judging and letting my vent. I refuse to leave this earth without thanking All Time Low for giving me hope, and a minute or two to escape. Even though they don’t know that I exist.
I hope when they fall asleep tonight, or whenever, that they know they saved a life. I had doubts that one day everything would be okay, but with All Time Low, I know that one day everything will be okay.
