"Me and Charlie Talkin'" as written by and Lambert/lambert/little....
Me and Charlie boy used to go walking,
Sittin' in the woods behind my house
When being lovers meant a stolen kiss
And holding hands with nobody else around
Charlie said he wanted to get married
But we were only ten so we'd have to wait
He said we'd never let our love run dry like so many do these days

So we treat our love like a firefly,
Like it only gets to shine for a little while
Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh promises we made when we'd go walking
That's just me and Charlie talking

Charlie always said he'd like to leave here,
So he turned eighteen and he left our sleepy town
Letters came and went and I kept waiting
For Charlie to come back and bring the life he'd found
It's funny how time and distance change you
The road you take don't always lead you home
You can start a love with good intentions
Then you look up and it's gone

So you treat your love like a firefly
Like it only gets to shine for a little while
Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh the promises we made when we'd go walking
That's just me and Charlie talking

Now and then I sometimes think of Charlie
How we thought we new it all back then
Now I'd give anything to feel love from a child's heart again

So you treat your love like a firefly
Like it only gets to shine for a little while
Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh, promises we made when we'd go walking
That's just me and Charlie, me and Charlie talking

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la

    General CommentThis song is about falling in love when you're young. But young love normally doesn't last and "Charlie" moves away. She waits for him to come back for her, but he has moved on in more than one sense and he doesn't come back for her. And the chorus means when you find someone young you should try and hang on as long as possible, but soon you'll have to let go. And it's "when being lovers meant a stolen kiss" and also, "the promises we made when we'd go walkin'."
