I've been here lookin' dynamite
Alone against the wall
Girls like you give it all so cold

Talkin' cheap in a bathroom stall
Look so smooth
Better tell me the truth
Would you trade me
Out for someone cool?
I know you better than you do
So put out your cigarette
Kiss me on
The lips tonight

Me and you
You and me
Let's go back
Let's go back
1983 is calling
I've been on my knees and crawling
Back to you
It's coming all back to me
Oh oh oh
1983

I've got something that I've kept inside
And the blood is on the blade
You're there suckin' on a lollipop
Like you haven't aged a day

And it ain't so pretty when you're playin' cute
When your
Body's up against some fool
Does he feel it
Cuz I feel it

Me and you
You and me
Let's go back
Let's go back
1983 is calling
I've been on my knees and crawling
Back to you
It's coming all back to me
Oh oh oh
1983

The year I was born
I won't
Be ignored
So get your feet on the floor
I'm the only one
Are you afraid I still make you move

    I think the meaning of this song is the girl he's talking about in th song had turned him down in 1983 and they saw eachother years later and the song is about a memory of the night she turned him down. And she had a real shady reason to turn him down; which is why he says "Are you afraid I still make you move?" at the end.
