"Her Voice Is Beyond Her Years" as written by and Johan Haslund Wohlert Silas Utke Graae Joergensen....
Her voice is beyond her years
She's trying to move you
She did not know where to go
And soon it was dark
If I could look you in the eyes
If I could look you in the eyes
I couldn't let you go
I couldn't let you go
Her voice is beyond her years
Please try not to move her
At least it was her mistake
Hers alone to make
If I could look you in the eyes
If I could look you in the eyes

    General CommentThe title of the song instantly makes me think of deception, and "She's trying to move you", the use of the word 'trying' makes me think that perhaps 'she' has some ulterior motive.
    "If I could look you in the eyes, I couldn't let you go"
    She's obviously compelling, so maybe the singer is trying to avoid looking her in the eyes so that he's not drawn into her web?

    General CommentFor me it simply means a girl that has been through and seen too much for her age, and therefore grew mentally older than what is normal for her age.

    General CommentThis is a personal interpretation so please... don't bash it.
    Line for line here it goes.
    Her Voice is Beyond Her Years
    (Self explanatory)
    she's trying to move you
    (she's trying to move the guy with her love with hers with no results)
    she did not know where to go
    (she's hopeless in the situation and doesn't know how to fix it)
    and soon it was dark
    (dark maybe death? or even just over dosing. Possibly she couldn't take the pain and conflict of this love.)

    If I could look you in the eyes
    I couldn't let you go
    (If he were there and she could look into his eyes maybe she would feel that little bit of happiness to keep her out of the suicidal depression?)

    Her Voice is Beyond Her Years
    please try not to move her
    (he found her body and called the ambulance and they are telling him to try not to move the body)
    at least it was her mistake
    (he's comforting himself by telling himself it wasn't his fault it was her mistake)
    hers alone to make
    (only she could make the decision to take her own life)

    If I could look you in the eyes
    If I could look you in the eyes
    (he's thinking to himself if he could just look into her eyes one last time he would tell her how much she really meant to him)

    Like I said before ... totally personal interpretation.

    General CommentIn fact, I completely agree with beautifulnobody, and according to that intepretation, I think the story goes like this:

    They knew each other but they never really talked to each other; she was in love with him and started the flirting, and he knew about her feelings but he wasn't interested. Unsuccessful, she started to getting depressed and she could only think of "If I could look you in the eyes...I couldn't let you go".

    One day, he found her body and called an ambulance. And he was blaming himself by being the cause of her death. Later then, he apologized to her parents, they responded that he didn't have to apologize, it wasn't his fault.


    And that's it. It's about unrequited love.
