Young Hearts Burning

The one Robin loves is leaving
Next tuesday he'll depart
Then will come the grieving
And all over Robin'll have to start

See, he's the only one she's seeing
Because she loves him oh so deeply
Will Robin keep believing? 
Or suffer from Young Hearts?

Never again will Robin see him
As he'll soon be gone, gone quickly on his way
And Robin'll never get the chance
To say what she had to say

Worse, today she heard that he met a girl so quickly
As she just knew and expected that he would
Now Robin can feel her Young Heart's thorns growing prickly
Alone in the night she stands now, just as before, she stood

Young Hearts blind to the art of it all
So look outside, and watch them as they fall
Burning rockets flying on passion and desire
Hard into the crust of the earth, together, into hellfire

But what if Robin knew that this boy loved her too, from the start?
That all he wanted was to be with her forever
And spend his life, with her as one, together?
Oh how he too, suffered from Young Hearts

And while this girl he found reminds him vaguely of Robin
Every time he's with her, he can't get passed that one girl's face
In the nights, these days, he always finds himself sobbing
Wishing, of Robin, he had some sort of trace

His world is an obsession, he sees Robin in his dreams
He looks forward to the night, to be with her it seems
As he creates her face, her love in his mind
Just to get through, until another he can find
 
Young Hearts so blind to the art of it all
So take a look, and watch the Young Hearts fall
So driven by passion and desire, yet they never make a sound
Plummeting into the ocean, oh how together they drown

Of heartaches lessons these two are now learning
The fires of love, in their Young Hearts, start burning
They're beginning to form their desires in a lover
Will Young Hearts be ready for the one they'll discover?
