"19 You + Me" as written by Dan Smyers, Shay Mooney and Danny Orton....
It was our first week
At Myrtle Beach
Where it all began

It was 102°
Nothin' to do
Man it was hot
So we jumped in

We were summertime sippin', sippin'
Sweet tea kissin' off of your lips
T-shirt drippin', drippin' wet
How could I forget?

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me

We had our first dance in the sand
It was one hell of a souvenir
Tangled up, so in love
So, let's just stay right here

'Til the sun starts creepin', creepin' up
Right then I knew
Just what you were thinkin', thinkin' of
When I looked at you

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me
You and me

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me

First week in Myrtle Beach where it all began

    General CommentI think it's a reflection song. The singer is thinking back to when he met his now wife and how amazing it was. The line "It was our first week at Myrtle Beach where it all began" is him thinking back to where it happened, and the rest of the song deals with the little things that made them fall in love. I think it's possible they only saw each other each summer at first, especially since the phrases "where it began" and "the day we had to leave" are used, but eventually they realize what they have is real so they found a way to be together.

    I don't think the 19 in the song reflects, but is actually a bit of word play. It was the summer of them hence the line "It was everything we wanted it to be/The summer of 19 you and me."

    My InterpretationI don't like this song. Why does every new singer still think they have to sound like John Mayer to be listened to. I could whisper rhymes into a microphone too.....

    Anyway to be more specific, the first line of this song raises all kinds of questions. First, it was your first week of what? dating? marriage? The first week you knew each other? if it was a summer fling, the term 'first week' would imply that there was a second week. So that would be odd unless Dan and Shay are vacationing like Europeans and taking a few months off. Seriously, what 19 year old can afford to hang out on a beach for a week (or more as, again, the song implies) unless its spring break or something? Maybe they're from Myrtle Beach, but they why would it be necessary to mention it in the song? Also, the line 'Like the tears we cried that day we had to leave' would imply they are NOT from there. Why did they both have to leave at the same time? Did they go on vacation together? If so, again, they said it was their first week. maybe a honeymoon? But if that were the case, its odd that the words 'honeymoon' 'wife' 'marriage' 'marry' 'wedding' etc are no where to be found.

    This song is too simplistic. The writer(s) just made simple rhymes that kind of make sense..... unless you actually LISTEN to them, then the whole thing falls apart. Every time I hear it I'm completely baffled
