Benny Blanco, Halsey, Khalid - Eastside

Uh 
Yeah, yeah 

When I was young, I fell in love 
We used to hold hands, man, that was enough (yeah) 
Then we grew up, started to touch 
Used to kiss underneath the light on the back of the bus (yeah) 
Oh no, your daddy didn't like me much 
And he didn't believe me when I said you were the one 
Oh, every day she found a way out of the window to sneak out late 

She used to meet me on the Eastside 
In the city where the sun don't set 
And every day, you know that we ride 
Through the backstreets of a blue Corvette 
Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight 
We can go anywhere we want 
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat 
Just take my hand and come with me, yeah 

We can do anything if we put our minds to it 
Take your whole life then you put a line through it 
My love is yours if you're willing to take it 
Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it 
So come away, starting today 
Start a new life, together in a different place 
We know that love is how these ideas came to be 
So baby, run away with me 

Seventeen and we got a dream to have a family 
A house and everything in between 
And then, oh, suddenly we turned twenty-three 
Now we got pressure for taking our life more seriously 
We got our dead-end jobs and got bills to pay 
Have old friends and know our enemies 
Now I, I'm thinking back to when I was young 
Back to the day when I was falling in love 

He used to meet me on the Eastside 
In the city where the sun don't set 
And every day, you know where we ride 
Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette 
And baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight 
We can go anywhere we want 
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat 
Just take my hand and come with me 
Singing 

We can do anything if we put our minds to it 
Take your whole life then you put a line through it 
My love is yours if you're willing to take it 
Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it 
So come away, starting today 
Start a new life, together in a different place 
We know that love is how these ideas came to be 
So baby, run away with me 

Run away, now 
Run away, now 
Run away, now 
Run away, now 
Run away, now 
Run away, now 

He used to meet me on the Eastside 

She used to meet me on the Eastside 

He used to meet me on the Eastside 

She used to meet me on the Eastside 
In the city where the sun don't set

Interpretation of Eastside

The song ”Eastside” tells us about a man and a woman who remember how they have fallen in love with each other in their teens and how they secretly met. When they were seventeen years old, they have dreamed to have a family and to live in prosperity. The young woman has decided to live with her lover although her father has been against their relationship. After a few years, the lovers notice that they have to take more responsibility  and that life is not as easy as they have imagined. The problems of the present force to think of their former life. 

The author of the song tells about how a teenager has to accept more and more responsibility when becoming a grown-up. The young people have to learn that adults can make negative experiences.  

But it does not necessarily mean that they draw a lesson from them. There is no indication that the two lovers want to solve their problems on their own because the last verses only repeat their already mentioned recollections. One of the last phrases is “Run away, now”, which is repeated six times. Thus, it can be supposed that the couple wants to solve the problems by running away again. It means that they still have not become independent and self-confident. It does not matter which interpretation you prefer: The song appeals to us to continually develop our own personalities and to avoid thinking too often about the past.
