"Coppertone" as written by William E Beckett Jr, Michael Carden, Michael Chislett, Andy Mrotek, David Katz and Sam Hollander....
Do you think you?re up for this?
Are you ready to get undressed
Undressed in your evening best besides
Every heart is like a house on fire with escape
Routes in every room
These are the trials of our youth

But this charade is never going to last
So pick the poison and pour yourself a glass
I still feel the same
No one's to blame

I will be waiting outside if you're ready to go
Your sundress reflects in the headlight glow
Besides, every heart is like a house of cards
When the walls break down on you
These are the trials of our youth

These are the fast times
These are the fast times

These mistakes are just a part of the ride
And if we choke on the next tongue that we tie
I still feel the same

These are the fast times

    General Commentthe line that sticks out to me in this song is "these are the trials of our youth"- learning to love, let go, move on, take chances. these are the things that are part of being young that make you who you are for the rest of your life.
    "but this charade is never going to last, so pick the poison and pour yourself a glass"- we all have to grow up. no matter how much you resist, you're goign to have to grow up in some way, so you might as well make some decisions.

    General Commentthis song is my favorite song of all time.
    the first verse is definitely, 100% my favorite. hes asking her if she's ready to give up her virginity to him.

    My InterpretationThis is where I get a little fuzzy on the whole thing. I think it's about a girl who hasn't ever got drunk or had sex before and is maybe considering it, and the narrator is saying "it could be a mistake, but it's the kind everyone needs to make to really learn about life and grow up, so go for it".

    General CommentI think this song is about how at the beginning of like someone it's almost a tug of war game where you either chase or be chased. and I think everyone wants to get out of something that suggest commitment as quick as they can.

    My OpinionThis song is great. The lyrics are meaningful (although with William Beckett we can expect no less) and its performed amazingly.

    General CommentAnd life goes on.. no matter how many mistakes we make. "These are the fast times" we all grow old and die, sadly
