All Saints is een Brits-Canadese popgroep die in 1993 als drietal begint met Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis en Simone Rainford. In 1995 maakt Rainford plaats voor de zussen Nicole en Natalie Appleton.

In 1997 maakt Nederland kennis met het viertal als I Know Where It's At de eerste bescheiden Top 40-hit wordt (#33). De opvolger wordt hun grootste succes in ons land: Never Ever haalt de vierde plaats en staat 19 weken genoteerd. Net als de groep een blijvertje lijkt (twee hits in 1998, nog twee in 2000), komt in 2001 het nieuws dat de groep uit elkaar gaat.

In 2006 komen de dames weer bij elkaar en wordt een nieuw album (Red Flag) uitgebracht. Het lukt ze ook weer om in de Top 40 te komen: Rock Steady staat eind november/begin december drie weekjes in de lijst en wordt All Saints' zevende Top 40-hit, met 38 als hoogste positie.


Songtekst

A few questions that I need to know
How you could ever hurt me so
I need to know what I've done wrong
And how long it's been going on
Was it that i never paid enough attention
Or did I not give enough affection
Not only will your answers keep me sane
But I'll know never to make the same mistake again
You can tell me to my face
Or even on the phone,
You can write it in a letter
Either way I have to know
Did I never treat you right
Did I always start the fight
Either way I'm going out of my mind
All the answers to my questions I have to find

My head's spinnin'
Boy I'm in a daze
I feel isolated
Don't wanna communicate
I take a shower
I will scour
I will run
Find peace of mind
The happy mind
I once owned, yeah

Flexing vocabulary runs right through me
The alphabet runs right from A to Z
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find
I'm not crazy
I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, no
I'm just waiting,
'Cause I heard that this feeling won't last that long

Chorus
Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I'm feeling yeah you got me feeling really bad
Never ever have I had to find
I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I've never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I'm feeling yeah it just don't feel right

I'll keep searching
Deep within my soul
For all the answers
Don't wanna hurt no more
I need peace gotta feel at ease
Need to be
Free from pain
Going insane
My heart aches yeah

Sometimes vocabulary runs through my head
The alphabet runs right from A to Zed
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find
I'm not crazy
I'm sure I ain't done, nothing wrong
Now I'ma just awaiting,
'Cause I heard that this feeling won't last that long

chorus x3

You can tell me to my face
or even on the phone
Ooh you can write it in a letter babe
'Cause I really need to know
You can write it in a letter babe
You can write it in a letter babe (repeat til fade)
