    It's about a guy who meets and falls for a girl who is clearly too young for him and he knows it and being a good guy and not a self serving jerk he understands that he has to end things before he hurts her by the inevitable. Simple and sweet.

    Stop trying to figure out the definition of the literal, written words. What do we have a whole bunch of crazy jesus freaks reciting the actual words of the bible verbatim in here? Its not only about what it states, its about what it means to you. Its not about its word for word definition. Its about someone who knows what its like to leave someone, (when they can selfishly don't have to) while truly loving them. Leaving who they love, knowing its better for that person, although it kills themselves inside. Being a martyr for love.
