At the department of forgotten songs
There is a crying girl
She's lonely
She's just sixteen
Or forty-five
She's been abandoned for almost all her life
She can remember the boy who kissed her
But it was meant for her evil B-side sister

    Song Meaningisn't it quite obvious?

    the track is an allegory of a love triangle.

    there is a vinyl records archive storage (or lost&found) where
    all of the forgotten songs go, when they are abandoned by
    their owners.

    16 or 45 are rev speeds of 7'' records, so the girl is a seven-incher
    and has a b-side, which is apparently her sister.

    the sister is "evil", because it is her, that a kiss from the boy (another
    forgotten vinyl record) was meant for.

    the girl is fond of the boy which is fond of her sister, thus tears.
