Don't kid yourself
And don't fool yourself.
This love's too good to last,
And I'm too old to change.

Don't grow up too fast
And don't embrace the past.
This life's too good to last,
And I'm too young to care.

(Interlude)

Don't kid yourself
And don't fool yourself.
This life could be the last
And you're too young to see.
Woah...

    I think it is about how we should hold on to what we have because one day you migt not have it. And how we should live life to the max, without looking back on mistakes or bad things.

    The song's meaning fits best to young people. Live a life. Enjoy yourself and stop thinking about the past because it's already done.

    I think it is trying to say that we should hold on to what we've got because it may not last. And how we should live life to the max and not look back.
