Late last night 12:29 you were a social butterfly
But tonight you feel the pain
The club was packed you didnt hold back
Short skirt tight shirt to match
And through the crowd you saw his eyes
He had thoughts on his mind
At first you laughed about it 3 drinks later you found out that
You were riding home with a stranger

Late last night 12:29 you were a social butterfly
But tonight you feel the pain
Well tonight its 12:29 endless streams of tears you cry
You waited on me by the telephone line
'cause you gave yourself away

So now you sit there all alone silent by the telephone
Your minds wondering your wondering and you can ever be yourself again
And all your friends would be proud of it
But deep inside you cant get around it
Last night you gave yourself away the sun didnt shine bright today

Late last night 12:29 you were a social butterfly
But tonight you feel the pain
Well tonight its 12:29 endless streams of tears you cry
You waited on me by the telepone line
'cause you gave yourself away and you wish that you could get it back now full refund full exchange now
But my friend please rest asure theres a hope of love despite of
When you wish that you could get it back now full refund full exchange now
But my friend please rest asure theres a hope that loves despite of the fact that

Last night 12:29 you were a social butterfly
But tonight you feel the pain
Well tonight its 12:29 endless streams of tears you cry
You waited on my by the telephone line
'cause you gave urself away
Yea you gave ur self aways
Tomorrows a new day
Well yea you gave yourself away
So make a choice to change

    General CommentBasically about someone who went and had sex before marriage, she went to a club and was attracted to a guy, they got drunk and drove home together.

    Late last night 12:29 you were a social butterfly
    But tonight you feel the pain

    - Last night she was all chatty and all over the place, but now she is regretting what she did

    The club was packed you didnt hold back
    Short skirt tight shirt to match
    And through the crowd you saw his eyes
    He had thoughts on his mind

    - The club was full of men, she didnt hold back from anything, she looked like an easy target for a man to get his hands all over "short skirt tight shirt to match" she found the perfect one, or thats what she thought anyway. He had thoughts on his mind involving having sex with her. At first it was lighthearted then after a few drinks they were riding home together.

    Well tonight its 12:29 endless streams of tears you cry
    You waited on me by the telephone line
    'cause you gave yourself away

    24 hours later and she shows how upset she is, she waits for her friend by the telephone line (maybe a metaphor) cos she gave her virginity away

    So now you sit there all alone silent by the telephone
    Your minds wondering your wondering and you can never be yourself again.

    - She is feeling lonely and her mind is racing though all kinds of different thoughts. She cant be herself anymore which was a virgin.

    And all your friends would be proud of it
    But deep inside you cant get around it
    Last night you gave yourself away the sun didnt shine bright today

    - Her friends are proud that she has had sex for the first time, but she cant get around it because she has sinned within herself and against god and done what is wrong.

    and you wish that you could get it back now full refund full exchange now
    But my friend please rest asure theres a hope of love despite of
    When you wish that you could get it back now full refund full exchange now
    But my friend please rest asure theres a hope that loves despite of the fact that

    - She wish she could get back her virgin stats like a refund full exchange. The writer is telling her though, despite this rest assured that god loves us despite what happens when we fall away from the rules of our religion.

    Tomorrows a new day
    Well yea you gave yourself away
    So make a choice to change

    Tomorrow is a new day to try to start again, he encourages her that although shes had sex once, she can stop having sex before marriage any more times
