you took a baby off her hands
she stole the records from your van
you opened to her
and made her understand

but you're still locked in that same young love
still locked in that same young love
you knew enough to know nothing at all

they took the news and distorted it
she was the one who was loving it
she always wanted more
than you can give today

so you really can't complain once more
you know that she is spoken for
this dream & lie without her
would fade away

he was a loner for 16 years
embracing all his defended fears
he nearly lost her name
instead he called today

but he's still feeling that same old way
he whispers what she used to say
he knew enough to know nothing at all

he's still locked in that same young love
it's mostly what he's thinking of
he knew enough and never should've called

    General CommentI heard this song for the first time today and I really loved it...the meaning was kind of vague to me- it seems like there was a guy and he fell in love with a younger girl, and he just kept waiting for...she clearly moved on and never cared for him, and though he knows he's wasted so much time he just can't let her (or his conscious naivety) go?
