"My Finest Hour" as written by and Harriet Wheeler David Gavurin....
When the world, it shows me up
My clothes, they show me up
I never knew this before
The finest hour that I've ever known
Was finding a pound on the Underground
When my words came stumbling out
Then I went tumbling out
I've never been hit before
The finest hour that I've ever known
Was finding a pound on the Underground

And I keep hoping you are the same as me
And I'll send you letters and come to your house for tea
We are who we are, what do the others know
But poetry is not for me, so show me the way to go (home)

When the words came stumbling out of my mouth
And I went tumbling out (here, no no, no no)

But I keep hoping you are the same as me
And I'll send you letters and come to your house for tea
We are who we are, what do the others know
But poetry is not for me, so show me the way to go
Oh, I'm going home

But I'll keep hoping you are the only one
Yes, and I'll send you letters, oh, wouldn't it be such fun
Oh, we are who we are, whatever the others say
But poetry is not for me, as much as I'd like to stay
Oh, I just want to go home

You're, you're, you're too young
Should've been, you, you're, you're too young
It should've been, you too, you're too, you're too young
It should've been, you, you, you're too young
You should've been safe here
Bribed the judge and then sat down
Oh, you're, you're, you're too young

    To me, these words signify the nervous babbling which can expose someone's vulnerability. Just something I relate to lol.

    Her voice is just amazing.

    General CommentSeems like a story of a person that fell deeply in love with someone that was a bit too dangerous for their comfort. They were madly in love with the person despite that, but because of their fears, they passed on what would have been the most amazing experience of their entire life. It would have been (and it secretly was) the highest point in the person's life to be in love with the dangerous person.

    The singer still sees this person from time to time. It seems as though she is still friends with this person and that they still share a very special bond that others do not know or understand. But even when she is in this person's company, she is still reminded of how very different they are and she immediately wants to cling to comfort again (I'm going home).

    But then she again argues with her own heart about whether she should have been with this person or not, vacillating between this person being "the one"("should've been you") and this person being the wrong person for her ("you're too young") which suggests she felt this person was not quite mature enough for her.

    Just one girl's interpretation. Not sure if it's right!
