"That Girl Has Love" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
I don't know a lot about her
But she knew a lot about me
Her family seemed to love her
If what they say is true
Her friends all shared the good times man
That girl has love
That girl has

I didn't have a clue then that a kiss
Would change my whole life again
She walked into my room
When I was all alone
She told me I would date her from
September to December

She doesn't know
Things will never be the same again
She'll always be seventeen
That girl has love

She kept all the pain inside
Now she has got nothing to hide
At such a young age
She took her own life
Now she's seeing things that come in
Our dreams at night
She's a dreamer

She doesn't know
Things will never be the same again
She'll always be seventeen
That girl has love

That was too real to ever be fake
That was too strong to ever be forgotten
That girl has love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love

She doesn't know
Things will never be the same again
She'll always be seventeen
That girl has love

    General CommentI believe that this song is about a girl who committed suicide at 17. She had what looked to be a perfect life - great family, great friends, a boyfriend who cared, basically all around a lot of love. She was probably a confident girl - she told the singer that she would date him "from september to december." Yet, even with all of this, she didn't see the good in life. No one knew though, but after she kills herself she "has nothing to hide" and now sees things that only come in dreams as she is dead. The relationship was so real and raw that the singer can never forget it, it could never be fake. Her family, friends, and all that loved and still love her will always think of her as 17 - thus, "she'll always be seventeen."

    General Commenti think nothingelsecompares is right. this song didn't at first, but now it reminds me of one of my best friends, a girl who is smart, attractive, funny, and she is awesome at guitar and singing, she could get famous because of her vocal and guitar skills, but i was talking to her about me being depressed and she said that she knew how i felt, and i asked her how she knew and she showed me the underside of her arm where she cuts herself, and it shocked me so much, i just about cry whenever i hear this song or think about her

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl (that he dated) that ended her life too quickly. And she couldnt see all the good things in her life and all the people that loved her.

    she will always be remembered as 17.

    General CommentI think that it's about a girl who he dated who he was completely head over heels for, who killed herself when she was 17. But regardless, to him she'll always be remembered as extraordinary in a number of ways. Sad song. One of their really good ones, I think.

    General Commentshe told me i would date her from
    september to december
    -i read that as planned suicide.

    she kept all the pain inside
    now she has got nothing to hide
    -she had issues but she didn't want to upset anyone by telling them/she thought she had to appear perfect
