The Song Of 02/07/2017: One Republic – All The Right Move

Welcome to reality song – ‘All The Right Moves’ by American pop-rock band One Republic.

Kind of a self-deprecating anthem, as Ryan Tedder, the band’s lead vocalist, says. The song was released in 2009, when One Republic has already been on the top. But they can’t forget how they failed in the beginning. They weren’t accepted… All negative reviews… The road was closed, the time was dark.

They’ve got…
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down…

‘When OneRepublic came out, because of the other writing and producing I’d done, and because Timbaland was associated with our first single, we got completely discarded by the critics,’ – Ryan Tedder in the interview for Digital Spy.

But damn it, they’ve made it!

One Republic – All The Right Moves
All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

Let’s paint the picture of the perfect place
They’ve got it better than when anyone’s told ya
They’ll be the King of Hearts, and you’re the Queen of Spades
Then we’ll fight for you like we were your soldiers

I know we got it good, but they got it made,
And their grass is getting greener each day,
I know things are looking up, but soon they’ll take us down,
Before anybody’s knowing our name

They’ve got…

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down

Do you think I’m special? Do you think I’m nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear, and the sounds you like
Are we just sinking in an ocean of faces?

It can’t be possible that rain could fall
Only when it’s over our heads.
The sun is shining every day, but it’s far away.
Over the world instead.

They’ve got, they’ve got…

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down

It don’t matter what you see
I know I could never be
Someone that’ll look like you.
It don’t matter what you say
I know I could never fake
Someone that could sound like you.

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got
All the right moves and all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down

Yeah, we’re going down [2x]

All the right moves… hey
Yeah we’re going down
They say
All the right moves… hey
Yeah we’re going down
