Through Explanation you See the Lyrics in a New Light
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
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
She used to meet me on the Eastside In the city where the sun don't set

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.
