All the young monogamists
Are walking through the park
Each of them protagonists
In stories they won't start.
You and I, we smile at them
We've seen it all before
Older now, and wiser when
We both know what's in store.

As they gaze into the eyes
Of the one they love
They can feel inside of them
That this is not enough
Some of them will just grow tired
Some of them will flee
Some of them will sleep around
Just like you and me

You and I, we settled for
Whatever'd come along
And thought that lies were just like love
When put into a song
How could we, the cynical,
Who've been around the block
Ever trust another soul?
And who of us should talk?

But here we are, monogamists
A-swearing it will last
I know it seems ridiculous
Considering our pasts

But I will always be true to you
Yes, I will always be true to you.

    General CommentAnd truth feels like being skinned alive. But ya got to admire the bravery of the one holding the knife.

    My InterpretationFor me, this one great love song.

    Clearly, both of them aren't new at this game. And while young lovers always swear "eternal love", the reality is otherwise. Some of them will "grow tired, flee or sleep around" as he sings. But the person is clearly on another level, swearing to be "true to you" which is one of the best way to look at love.
