We're only young and naive still
We require certain skill
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can't help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it's too late
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

    This song basically describes a teenager growing up. They have to go through tough and difficult times and they go through changes in mood, like we all do. It also describes feeling insecure about flaws and them trying to change themselves to "fit in", like we all have. It also describes falling in love when you grow up.

    I think this song explores the emotions of first love, and how strong those feelings are... The naivety that it wont end, mixed with the rational realism that it eventually will ... Because of all the 'flaws' they will need to 'let go before its too late'

    To me this song describes the feeling of being young perfectly.
    We are not really grown up, but still all the adults expect us to know everything and behave grown up, though we are still not sure what we want, or how we actually feel.
    The whole process of growing up is "bittersweet", and we are looking for the best way between good and bad, and in doing so, fall in love sometimes, which is kind of the most exiting part while growing up ...

    I love this song.

    This song is about the teenage phase when we are all feeling insecure and afraid of change. However, we realize the descions we will have to make in our impending future and sooner or later, we must let go of our youthfull past, atleast for awhile. The in-between is the phase graduating teens are at and are unsure of their next step in life and where it will lead them.
