She was only a child
Someone to hold on
Only a child
Someone to believe in
Only a child
Someone to love

Ah........

She was "17"
Beauty queen
I met her in a magazine
Heart of fire
Loves desire
Reachin' out
Higher, higher

Runaway
One more day
A broken hearted child at play
I pray for you
Baby blue
In the name of love
I reach for you

In the darkness comes
The evil of the night
Think about it

You better wait
Stop yourself before you fall
You better wait
Stop before you lose it all
Somewhere there's love

Oh somewhere, somewhere

Precious girl
Little pearl
Temptation is a lonely world
Eyes deceive
They believe
In everything they wanna see, yeah

And the neon lights
Reflect your life
Only you know
Where you hide baby

You better wait
Stop yourself before you fall
You better wait
Stop before you lose it all
'Cause somewhere there's love
You better wait
Stop before you start
Don't look back
Don't lose heart

(guitar solo)

Don't look
Don't look
Don't look back baby

Ah......

Don't

Ah......

Don't look
Don't look
Don't look back baby

    My InterpretationI think this is about a memory.

    The start reflects seeing a girlfriend from long ago, through older and more compassionate eyes, seeing her for the relative child she is, and regretting that his older self was not there to warn her back then.

    He's talking to the young girl he once knew, warning her not to act on her infatuation, because it's not a solid situation or relationship, despite what her imagination tells her. I believe he wants to warn her not to give in to her attraction and desire, not to rush into sex because she could get pregnant and be left alone.

    It ends by urging her to go without looking back, in case her resolve weakens.
