"Young" as written by and Chris Thile....
Young and with no clue.
An' I wanna love you.
Give me the key to,
What is so bad.

Everything I've read.
An' everything you've said,
Prove you're over my head.
Help me climb out.

I know that you told me nobody.
Are you sure you're that sure about me?

Hey, what did I do?
I've spoken too soon.
Listen, now this tune,
Forget the words.

Waited till someday,
'Cause when I know what you'd say.
Say it in the best way.
You've ever heard.

I know that you told me, nobody.
Are you sure you're that sure about me?

Young and with no clue.
Still wanna love you.
Give credit where it's due,
I've got good taste.

It's not like I wanna get married.
I never asked you to kiss me.
Just don't want you to be sorry.
You didn't try.

    General Commenti think this is an excellent song because it's written as someone might actually say it. i mean... it's a beautiful song, but the lyrics aren't forced poetry, they're just normal dialogue. i love the idea too because it's something almost everyone can relate to.

    General Comment"I never asked you to kiss me Just don't want you to be sorry you didn't try"
    sometimes i just feel the need to say that. i wish people would say what they mean and only say stuff they mean, and i wish people would disscus what they where thinking at the moment they thought it not 6 months later. time doesn't go on forever.

    General CommentThis is a cute song. I read somewhere that it is about Chris Thile's younger brother.

    General CommentThe way i perceive this song is that it's about young love- not necessarily love but what one inexperienced young person would call love. He has never felt this before so he is confused and being mislead by another. Basically he is probably in high school and some girl is playing with his feelings (nothing against girls, i happen to be one but i know how all that goes).

    General Commenti agree with everything above, except i don't think the girl knows she's playing with him. i think they're both as clueless as each other

    needless to say, i can so relate

    General CommentThese lyrics are just plain wrong.

    Correct lyrics and sentence formatting:

    Young and with no clue,
    and I wanna love you.
    Give me the key to
    what it's about.

    Everything I've read,
    and everything you've said
    prove you're over my head;
    Help me climb out.

    I know that you don't need nobody.
    Are you sure you're that sure about me?

    Hey, what did I do?
    I've spoken too soon.
    Listen to this tune,
    forget the words.

    Wait until someday,
    'cause when I know what to say
    I'll say it in the best way
    you've ever heard.

    I know that you don't need nobody.
    Are you sure you're that sure about me?

    Young and with no clue,
    I still wanna love you.
    Give credit where it's due,
    I've got good taste.

    It's not like I wanna get married.
    I never asked you to kiss me,
    just don't want you to be sorry
    you didn't try.
