"Live While We're Young" as written by Savan Harish Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Anthony Falk....
Hey girl I’m waiting on ya, I’m waiting on ya
Come on and let me sneak you out
And have a celebration, a celebration
The music up, the windows down

Yeah, we’ll be doing what we do
Just pretending that we’re cool and we know it too
Yeah, we’ll keep doing what we do
Just pretending that we’re cool, so tonight

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh and live while we’re young
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young

Hey girl it’s now or never, it’s now or never
Don't over-think just let it go
And if we get together, yeah, get together
Don’t let the pictures leave your phone

Yeah, we’ll be doing what we do
Just pretending that we’re cool, so tonight

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh and live while we’re young
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young

And girl, you and I
We’re about to make some memories tonight
I wanna live while we’re young
We wanna live while we’re young

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young

Crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young

Wanna live, wanna live (wanna live while we're young)
C'mon young
Wanna live, wanna live (wanna live while we're young)
Wanna live, wanna live (wanna live while we're young)
Tonight let's get some, and live while we're young

    General CommentThis was the very first 1D song I listened to.
    I was not expecting a song about sex. :|

    Song MeaningDon't believe that it's about sex? The first verse could have been about a boy trying to ask a girl to sneak out to a party but then they say windows down. Why would they say windows down? Doing what we do? I think about doing the do.

    I don't know what pretending like we're cool means.

    Let's go crazy, crazy, crazy till we see the sun
    I know we only met, but let's pretend it's love
    And never, never, never stop for anyone
    Tonight let's get some, and live while we're young
    (Woah) And live while we're young The chorus means:
    lets get it on all night.
    We just met but let have sex like we're in love even though we're not.
    We won't stop even when the phone rings or some kind of distraction.
    Tonight we're going to get some (sex) before we get to old and need some viagra

    Song MeaningIt's completely about sex. Get some means have sex. Simple as that.

    General CommentTo all the little 1D fans who don't think it's about sex, go to your parents and have the sex talk with them. Please.

    General CommentHere is some advice for One Direction. If you want to sing about sex. Make mature music and make sure your fanbase 15 and up not 5 to 15. When parents here this song, it's going to be so funny.

    My Interpretationme and my friend were thinking; this song doesn't have to be about, well, you-know-what. so we decided to give you our interpretation, this is for all the young directioners:

    "Hey girl I’m waiting on ya, I’m waiting on ya
    Come on and let me sneak you out"
    this is about a guy coming to his friends house to sneak her out so she could get a present for her parents anniversary

    "And have a celebration, a celebration
    The music up, the windows down"
    this is them being excited about getting out to get the present

    ":Yeah, we’ll be doing what we do
    Just pretending that we’re cool and we know it too
    Yeah, we’ll keep doing what we do
    Just pretending that we’re cool, so tonight"
    this is them just being them

    "Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
    I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
    And never, never, never stop for anyone
    Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young
    Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh and live while we’re young
    Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young"
    they are just being crazy until the sun - as they are out and buying a present,
    they aren't going to stop cus they know what they are going to get for their parents anniversary.
    i know we only met but lets pretend its love means that even tho they just met the present (a puppy) they are going to pretend that they love it. (but they eventually do)
    tonight lets get some means they are going to get a present - a PUPPY!!
    and now they are just gonna live while they are young.

    "Hey girl it’s now or never, it’s now or never
    Don't over-think just let it go
    And if we get together, yeah, get together
    Don’t let the pictures leave your phone"
    Zayn here is saying that the girl better hurry up and choose which puppy, hes telling her not to over think it.
    and if they get the puppy, she better not let the pictures leave her phone.

    "Yeah, we’ll be doing what we do
    Just pretending that we’re cool, so tonight"
    they are just being them

    -repeat chorus-

    "And girl, you and I
    We’re about to make some memories tonight"
    they are making memories about the puppy tonight

    "I wanna live while we’re young
    We wanna live while we’re young"
    all they wanna do is live while they are young

    -repeat chorus-

    lots of them wanting to live while they are young

    there you go; a really sweet story about a guy helping his friend - who just happens to be a girl- to get a present for her parents anniversary :)

    General CommentThey're teenage boys, what can you expect? All they think about is sex and what's for tea!

    My OpinionHnestly think SOME of you all our a bit too much. Look ''these kids'' have their own minds the guys wrote the song about having fun and yes the ''get some'' part is about sex but they can't control who listens to them. They didn't know how big their music does that. PLUS they don't sing it for little kids, they sing for teenagers. The wild ones of kids. The ones that like having fun and being free and being young and ''getting some'' and it seems like some of you can't control your kids but don't blame it on 1D or anyone else. If anyone's to blame it's you. Music is music. Doesn't mean they bad people, they are teenage boys themselves. One of them is in his early 20s thou. But that ain't a big deal. So grow up! Please!!!!

    General CommentThis song is obviously about teenagers and younger taking advantage of being young and having so many possibilities, and being..... well, young!!
