"young love" as written by Kai Fish, Henry William Harrison, Steven Blaine Harrison, William Rees, Kapil Trivedi and Erol Alkan....
If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Searching on the crowded streets,
For the face that I once saw.

If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Tell me have you seen the girl,
I met just once before?

One night of love,
Nothing more, nothing less.
One night of love,
To put my head in a mess.
Is that you on the bus?
Is that you on the train?
You wrote your number on my hand,
But it came off in the rain.

One night of love,
Nothing more, nothing less.
One night of love,
Has left my bed in a mess.
Is that you on the bus?
Is that you on the train?
You wrote your number on my hand,
But it came off in the rain.

If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Searching on the crowded streets,
For the face that I once saw.

If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Tell me have you seen the girl,
I met just once before?

Young love, it never seems to last,
Far too young, until they have a past.
Playing games, people move so fast,
You don't need eyes to see if someone's got a heart of glass.

Young love, it never seems to last,
Far too young, until they have a past.
One night of love,
Nothing more, nothing less.
One night of love,
Left my heart in a mess.

If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Searching on the crowded streets,
For the face that I once saw.

If I only knew your name,
I'd go from door to door.
Tell me, have you seen the boy,
I met just once before?

    General Commentthis song makes me so happy. feels quite summery don't you think?

    the breakfast presenters on Triple J were talking about how it's the 21st Century version of Cinderella, like someone trying to find the matching rash after a one night stand. Lol.

    nice to hear Will singing for a change too

    General Commentyoung love never seems to left
    ^ i think laura says last rather than left

    isn't it:
    "young love never seems to last
    hearts are young until they have a past."

    General Commentyes i agree...

    i am thinking that it was just a random one night stand that neither of them thought anything of at first but then they cannot seem to get this person out of their head .. x
