Celtic Thunder – Puppy Love lyrics

And they called it 'puppy love'
Oh I guess they'll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so

And they called it puppy love
Just because we're in our teens
Tell them all, please tell them it isn't fair
To take away my only dream

I cry each night
My tears for you
My tears are all in vain
I hope and I pray
That maybe someday
You'll be back
In my arms once again

Someone help me
Help me please
Is the answer up above
How can I oh how can I tell them
This is not a 'puppy love'

Someone help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above
How can I?
Oh how can I tell them
This is not a 'puppy love'

Not a 'Puppy love'

    I get the song. It meant that he was a teen and teens are always breaking up so that's why it's "i cry each night my tears for you my tears are all in vain i hope and pray that maybe someday you'll be back in my arms once again" he is longing for the girl to come back because they had a break up. Puppy love I guess because the adults don't always get the situation of teen love like puppies we don't always know about them. Is the answer up above because he wants to tell the adults that it is not a joke and wants to tell them that his love is real and wants to find out ow to get the girl back. He says it is not fair because some adults are pairing up their kids instead of them finding their own love. This song actually has a story and a tricky meaning.
