So there we were, back home
From somewhere inside my head
Well bravely I fought off monsters beneath her bed
Pillars of post-war books supported my frame of mind
While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind
She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me
The lantern died that night but we didn't need to see
Implying that she's the bees knees and I am the cats meow
It's funny how she recalls when I can't remember now

But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
Just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn
I got a sunburn

So there we were out there
Unaware of where we'd been
We kicked off our flip-flops
And swung from the rooftops again
It's awkward but I'll confess she's all I can think about
And it's funny how I recall when she can't remember now

But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
Just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

Oh afterglow, look out below!
We left a trail of dust behind
As we parted ways, she held my gaze,
And left and imprint on my mind
I tried not to cry as we said goodbye
And hung the clouds above my town
But I she'd a tear when she disappeared
Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground

(But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack)

We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
But she got a tan and I got a sunburn
She got a tan and I got a sunburn
Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

    It is amazing, its about how he and his girl were doing great and that they would never leave each other, but then something happened and she was ok, but he got burned or dumper. And then they left each other, but left imprints in mind, but it never worked out and and when she left, he was a nobody. And that's just a story and meaning I think about this song. Just saying.
