Talked to my sister late last night.
And she gave me some advice.
And what she said was right.
Talked to my sister late last night.
I said I've got her on my mind.
She said that's good I know my kind.

And maybe this time,
Maybe she's just the one you need.
Keep taking your time,
You shouldn't go for her full speed.

Cause I know that I've never seen
Your motives so squeaky clean,
And my 17 Magazine tells me
That you're in love.

Jessica told me that I should take a quiz.
10 yes or no questions to tell me what love really is.
I searched for my answers,
I lied and said I like N*Sync.
They said my middle name's Don Juan,
And I'm sure of myself
I think

Cause if you're asking me,
Love is sacred love is sweet,
and my 17 Magazine tells me
That you're in love.

    This guy thinks he's in love with some other girl. He's asking his sister for advice, she's saying "yeah its love, go for it. But don't go too fast." She says she gets it from 17.

    this song is so great because the seventeen magazine view of love in general is so crazy that i can't even stand it. it makes fun of everyone that goes to my school because they're all like "ohhhh i love you" when they just met the kid yesterday. idiots.

    plus matt thiessen's hair is outta control.

    I agree, for the most part, with JustBeingMe. I think it's about how teenagers these days, think they know what love is, and this concept is reinforced by popular teen magazines. These magazines make it out to be superficial , and stupid - when love is really deep and meaningful, and indescribable.

    I think that it's all about our mispercetions of love. We're surrounded by things that influence us on what love is. Too this guys older sister love is what 17 magazine says. To her love has to do with what bands you like and superficial stuff like that.

    this post goes out to danny... pinkbombshell (btw how'd you come up with that name?!)... i agree, the kiddies in our school are fools. they have me baffled. one day it's "hi you're hot, what's your name?" and (seriously) the next its "i love you baby i love you i love you i love you". the kiddies in our school make me want to cry they are such fools. troo danny-thiessen's hair is wild... yet extremely shibby.

    relient k just rules. they just do. they are my heros.

More Featured Meanings

Album art
Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
Album art
Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
