You never lied to me not once
Its not your fault that I can't trust
Its in my past, its in my path and I can't go there
Making a mess out of this game
To see it all go up in flames
So tired of being ruthless and wreckless

Time to be your only one
To almost be your way too young
Time to crash into the sun
Time to be your 21
Time to dream that love will last
Time to drive my car too fast
Time to walk before I run
Time to be
Ohh time to be your 21

I don't believe in love and I
I put it to the wall
I tasted sweetness dared to laugh so hard as it falls
And I could push you there if you don't stop me
Push you there if you don't stop me
Please stop me

Time to be your only one
To almost be your way too young
Time to crash into the sun
Time to be your 21
Time to dream that love will last
Time to drive my car too fast
Time to walk before I run
Time to be
Ohh time to be your 21

Its gut wrenching sometimes
Its life threatening sometimes
Seems like nothing can wash it all away

Time to be your only one
To almost be your way too young
Time to crash into the sun
Time to be your 21
Time to dream that love will last
Time to drive my car too fast
Time to walk before I run
Time to be your 21 [x2]

    General CommentI love the entire second verse of this song. About not believeing in love and how she is afraid that she will push him away and she is kind of telling him to stop her before she does. I just love it, I love all of her songs.

    General CommentIt really does hit home, doesn't it?

    But is is "to almost be 'you're way too young'" as in 'you are way too young' or "your 'way to young'" as in 'I want to be yours but I'm too young'?


    ALSO, i love the line ' i tasted sweetness there and laughed so hard, as it falls' but what exactly does it mean??

    General Commentit does hit home.
    so much
    ive been in a situtation like this and my bf was olser

    and personally i think it is 'i want to be but im too young'
    but thats just me.

    i love this song so much
    it makes me all teary when i think bout it all.

    to me its saying that she never ever believed in love.
    and then this one guy came along and it changed for her.
    but the guy is older.
    so she is asking herself not to fall for him because she might get hurt.

    alexz is the most conviencing singer ever!

    General CommentIt's about having a crush on someone too old for you. In the beginning she's saying that's she knows she young, and not ready for love. Then the chorus explains she can mature, and she can be right for him. If he just waits a little bit. Then in the second verse she's saying that she's never been in love, and that if he's okay with it, they could be together. Then the bridge is saying that this crush, is eating her inside.
