Honey I told you
That these things never last
And one of these days now
You`ll start dreaming of the past

When life was once too short for all the things we`d do and the shots we`d call
And endless summer without a fall
When promises were meant to keep
And nighttime wasn`t meant for sleep
A love story at it`s peak

Doesn`t it feel good
To know that you`ve been loved
And doesn`t it make you
Laugh when you think of

The day when we all got lost on the old mans farm
Just trying to get across
It was only then I knew what love was
Sunday mornings that never ended and hangovers that never mended
A love story at it`s peak

    General CommentI'm surprised this song hasn't been commented yet.
    It's pretty straightforward what this song is about IMO:
    It's about young love. It's about how you can love someone when young, but it ends and you move one but you'll always look back at this young love and feel happy in some way.

    From the Norwegian film "Monstertorsdag", and the meaning of this song fits the story in the film very well.

    General CommentIt is obvious that the song is about real love. "It was only then I knew what love was". It is something that has happened in the past, but I think that the 'I' person dreams of it, and wants it back.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song.

    I feel the relationship has changed between them both, and they're both reminiscing back to when they both knew what love was.

    My favorite line:
    "a love story at its peak"

    My InterpretationThe way I initially took this song was it being about a relationship and it's ups and downs. How it started beautifully and great, however took an opposite turn to many problems. Kind of a "honey moon syndrome" thing. Where the beginning of the relationship was(is) idealized and romanticized, but where as in now it faces a less than ideal situation. (However it is evident that the love is still there, only with problems where as in before there were not.) It's possible that it could be a lost relationship that was great at the beginning but went a bit problematic and is still thought about, or a current relationship that too went a similar route, or that which might just happen to the current relationship.

    OR it can just be a song about a love that is great and beautiful, however leads to the fact that it might die or that it is soon to fall due to it being on its "peak". Kind of a "right now is great but soon it'll probably end or lose it's spark." (Which I actually believe more now).
