I've had a revelation
The lost child that forgotten me
Consequences too much
I can't put myself to sleep for the feet
On the edge of my mind
The waves are falling
Rain sliding like a belt of lust
I wanna leave with you baby
We could get a place just the two of us

So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh
So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh

Hear the mind like a mirror
Things pass and they leave no stain
I can see myself carving up
Words in the dust on the window pane
Shooting straight up my spine
I grieve electric
Violent eyes on a violent sea
How do I play in the memory
Of someone only there
In the beefest heart?

So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh
So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh

And I love the passing dark of it
The weight of it touching nothing
Sometimes I wanna creep back into it
But I'm running like a woman straight to you
The force and the blood are dead
Breaking the seal of everything spoken
And I try to mimic the shape
Of a person only present in my mind
That's taken

So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh
So young (so young) so young
So young, Ooh

    My InterpretationThough still trying to figure out what this song means, I feel a strong connection to the emotive melodies and abstract, yet deep lyrics. I believe the singer is describing a loss. After transcribing the words you see here (not perfectly) and listening to the song for days on end, it occurred to me that this song may have been about grieving the death of a close young friend or lover. I am not sure what "revelation" the singer is having, but I feel that she wished to go with him.
