Hayley Williams Opens Up About 'Told You So'
Last year, Williams opened up about the song "Told You So," which is featured in After Laughter. She said that the track is about following her heart and ending up feeling miserable afterward.
"I've lost friendships or whatever and everyone has, it's not unique to being in a band, but I just keep feeling like I've always been in this position where I felt like there were people kinda waiting to tell me that they knew what the outcome was gonna be and I was the only one that didn't see it," said Williams.
