"Kids in Love" as written by Gregg Wattenberg and Writer Unknown....
I look back to the one and only summer time
And my girl was the envy of every friend of mine
She slept safely in my arms
We were so young and invincible

Closed lips, she was never one to kiss and tell
Those trips in the summer never went so well
Young love was such dumb love
Call it what you want it was still enough

And you're still out of my reach
And you're still all of the things
That I want in my life
How could I ask you to leave me?

And we were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tear us apart?

Our breath smelled of cigarettes and alcohol
We'd walk down the beach counting every star
Our hearts beat inside our chest
Leaving us gasping for every breath

Her smile with the wind blowing through her hair
Was so contagious in the air
So satisfying and I'm still smiling

And you're still out of my reach
And you're still all of the things
That I want in my life
How could I ask you to leave me?


And we were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tear us apart

We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces?
We're at an all time low, how do we get it back?
We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces?

We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces now?

And we were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tear us

We were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tear us apart?

We were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tare us apart?

    My InterpretationI look back to the one and only summertime
    when my girl was the envy of every friend of mine
    she slept safely in my arms
    we were so young and invincible
    *he felt like he was lucky to have her*

    closed lips she was never one to kiss and tell
    those trips in the summer never went so well
    *she never let him "get some," no matter how hard he tried.*

    young love was such dumb love
    call it what you want it was still enough
    *he realized now he was naive*

    and its still out of my reach
    and you're still all of the things that i want in my life
    how could i ask you to leave me

    *he regrets messing things up, he made a mistake (below) that would be their end*

    and we were just kids in love
    the summer was full of mistakes we wouldnt learn from

    *neither have changed*

    the first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    why did the last one tear us apart?

    *it said before that she wasn't one to kiss and tell,
    maybe after they made love he told everyone and that was their end*

    our breath smelled of cigarettes and alcohol
    we walked down the beach counting every star
    hearts beat inside out chest
    leaving us gasping for every breath

    *self explanitory, had a great time*

    her smile with the wind blowing through her hair
    was so contagious in the air
    so satisfying and im still smiling

    *same thing*


    were falling down
    can we pick up the pieces?
    were at an all time low
    how do we get it back?
    were falling down
    can we pick up the pieces?
    were falling down
    can we pick up the pieces now?

    *he realizes his mistake now and wants to fix things*

    General Commentmy sisters friend gave her a cd and this was track 1 and she was like 'this is mayday you know?' and i was like 'omg they sound different'. i had their previous album. we were sitting in the aldi carpark with the doors of the car open and blaring out this song and fell in love with it instantly. i realised i needed to get the new album. hence i got it as a christmas present and i fell in love with it.

    this song and still breathing hold a special place in me as they were they first ones i heard off the new album. i always hope i will find this sort of summer romance with someone. someone special.

    can't wait for it to happen. the only bummer is that the summer ends.

    i think the meaning is quite self explainitory. summer romance that he wants back.

    can't explain what a trance this song puts me in.
    im listening to it right now.
    cant forget it.

    General CommentI had typed all the lyrics to this only to see they were already pending when I went to submit them. Haha.

    Anyway, this song seems like it's about a summer romance. It was the first taste of what he could have, and then he lost it and wants it back.

    General Commentthis is about two teenagers falling in love in the summer time. while it wasnt a perfect relationship, it was one he truly loved. after the summer ended, they seperated and didnt keep in touch. now hes thinking of all the memories and wants to be with her again. hes wondering why the first time they kissed it was magical and they were so in love, and the last time they kissed it was a goodbye and they wouldnt see each other again. best song on the album
