Living on a diet of Chocolates & Cigarettes
I wanna call you again
Ill drink tea sometimes when its cold
This is getting old
I call you again

Still too young to fail, too scared to sail away
But one of these days Ill grow old
And Ill grow brave and Ill go
One of these days

Blowing out the candles from my cake
I choke on the smoke as I look around the room
Everybodys wishing for no more mistakes
And all that I can think about is you

Still too young to fail, to scared to sail away
But one of these days Ill grow old
And Ill grow brave and Ill go
One of these days
La da la da la da

Still too young to fail, to scared to sail away
But one of these days Ill grow old
And Ill grow brave and Ill go
One of these days
La da la da la da

    For me it's about someone knowing that the person they love isn't perfect for them, they have irreconcilable issues but she can't stop herself from going back to him.

    She keeps making mistakes, but it's ok because no mistake that she makes at this age, will adversely affect her future.

    She can't shake him off, not yet, but she will in the future, when the time is right.
