86 Charlie came over
He asked me for a favour
Asked me a question
Asked me to make an exception

86 Charlie he came back
Said he'd been thinking it over
Says he's had a change of heart
He thinks he's made a grave mistake

But I, I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
You make things so easy
I'll never forget you

86 Charlie he came back, he came back
Sat down at the table and for the last time
Said he's finally made up his mind
He wonders if it's not too late
It's not too late, because

I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
You make me so angry
I'll never forget you

    Well let me try to break this apart. Just as the other person said below, "86' is old american slang for throwing out, out of use, basically just finished. " i think that charlie asked her, birdy, something that offended her or made her mad, for example, her virginity, so she got pissed, and they probably got into a fight, that ended it. Then he came back, asking for forgiveness, telling her he was so sorry, he made a mistake. But she can never forgive him, she can't ever forget him. He hurt her so bad..

    The song was written by francis and the lights originally. Have a listen to it by him and you'll get a totally different point of view.

    Given it was written originally by a man it has nothing to do with a girl. It's about a relationship between two men, whether there's anything sexual to the relationship is up to the individual.

    I think this beautiful song is about a girl who was very much in love with 86 charlie but he was torn between her and another girl, the relationship is complicated because he can never quite decide. One day the first girl (birdy) realizes how much this is hurting her and tries to let go but 86 charlie comes back and tries to tell her that he chose her but she can't be with him after he hurt her like he did. She will never forget him though. She treasures their time together but she can't forgive him even after he chose to be with her.

    '86' is old american slang for throwing out, out of use, basically just finished. I think charlie is an ex of hers that has come back because he 'thinks he's made a grave mistake' and probably wants her back. But she'll never forget him, he made things so easy. 'sat down at the table, and for the last time' i think means that she's made up her mind; yes, he made things so easy, but he also made her so angry. She'll never forget him though. Such a beautiful song
