"Young Blood" as written by and Alisa Xayalith Aaron Short....
We're only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can't help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it's too late
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

    General CommentThe line that sticks out for me, is 'fall back in love eventually'. Maybe it is because I'm old (31), but I hear this song and believe in the songwriters gift for a realistic view of life, at a young age. From what I understand, these are fairly young individuals, and the WORD that stands out in the line I mentioned is 'BACK', because the writer is not only saying they will find love, but they will fall 'BACK'. Love is a DISTRACTION, when young (I suppose, is the best way to put it). And for now, even for so young, The Naked And Famous are acknowledging what they will 'give up', I suppose, for this driving creativity that they must explore. And when I say 'explore', please, realize, I mean "WORK". They dropped out of school, I read? (Googled them, read an interview) They believe they're calling is in what they are DRIVEN TO DO, not what they are QUALIFIED to do. This is a song about one's own path.

    To lyrically describe that, while in the process of EXPERIENCING it, (again I will say, at a young age) is not just writing or making music, it is translating life. That is why it is a great song. It is a pure interpretation of the songwriter's experience in life. Many write, some relate, few TELL. It is pretty because it is true.

    Have I misinterpreted the meaning of this song, from the point of view of the songwriter? Very likely. Have I misinterpreted what the song means to me? Impossible.
