  • Sweet disposition
    Never too soon
    Oh, reckless abandon
    Like no one's watching you
    A moment a love
    A dream aloud
    A kiss a cry
    Our rights
    Our wrongs
    A moment, a love
    A dream aloud
    A moment, a love
    A dream, aloud

    So stay there
    'Cause I'll be coming over
    And while our blood's still young
    It's so young, it runs
    And won't stop 'til it's over
    Won't stop to surrender

    Songs of desperation
    I played them for you
    A moment, a love
    A dream aloud
    A kiss, a cry
    Our rights
    Our wrongs
    A moment, a love
    A dream aloud
    A moment, a love
    A dream aloud

    Stay there
    'Cause I'll be coming over
    And while our blood's still young
    It's so young, it runs
    And won't stop 'til it's over
    Won't stop to surrender

    And won't stop 'til it's over
    Won't stop 'til it's over
    Won't stop 'til it's over
    Won't stop to surrender

  • Andrew from London, United KingdomQ: "So what's the song really about?"
    A: " When we're young, we act first and think later. But as adults, we rationalize everything. Basically, the song is about capturing the innocence of youth." - In NYLON NOV 09

    I think the first two lines sum it up perfectly: "Sweet disposition/ Never too soon". And what a beautiful voice.
