Girls, please, please,
allow my voice to calm you down.
Boys understand,
girls will never listen or learn.

I was old enough to know better,
Young enough to still decide,
That it was worth my time for something beautiful.
I finally found my voice,
and something that's worth writing down.
with a picture perfect memory of her body, her body.

Girls, please, please,
allow my voice to calm you down.
Boys understand,
girls will never listen or learn.
and I'll sing so sweet
while I speak I'll bite my tongue,
cause girls never listen.

She was young enough to fall in love
Naive enough to think she wanted out,
It wasn't worth her time for something beautiful.
You say love, she says maybe.
I say please, she says baby, "it's not you, I'm just out of my head."
Her body, her body.

Girls, please, please,
allow my voice to calm you down.
Boys understand,
girls will never listen or learn.
and I'll sing so sweet
while I speak I'll bite my tongue,
cause girls never listen.

Speak low,
Can you keep this a secret?
Tell me your lies and I will tell you of mine.
Whisper sweetly, while you touch me gently,
I'm out of my mind.
(Speak low)
We're not 21, it's time that we had some fun,
(Speak low)
We're not 21,
(cause girls never listen)
We're not 21, it's time that we had some fun,
We're not 21,
(cause girls never listen)
We're not 21, it's time that we had some fun,
We're not 21.

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about a guy speaking to his love, who doesn't think that she's good enough for him and pushes him away because she doesn't think he'd "understand". She doesn't want to commit ("You say love, she says maybe") and he tries to be kind to her but "girls never listen."

    He wants to understand, and he does understand.

    "Can you keep this a secret?
    Tell me your lies and I will tell you of mine.
    Whisper sweetly, while you touch me gently,
    I'm out of my mind."

    He has come to terms with his "lies" and that he "out of [his] mind" and wants to explain that he "understands", because he's been there as well, and they are not all that different.

    My InterpretationThe way I see it, he's singing about a fan in general. The fan kept getting her heart broken by a different guy and he's just trying to comfort her in a song.

    But, that's the way I see it.
    It could be about anything.
