A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More Touch Me Lyrics
Droppin, "I'm sorry", like you're still around
And I know you dressed up
"hey kid, you'll never live this down"
You're just the girl all the boys want to dance with
And I'm just a boy who's using too many...

I think the title is the movie Sixteen Candles and the song Touch Me. The song is about a guy and a girl who really like each other, and she was waiting for him to ask her out, or whatever. She keeps giving him chances ( boy with too many chances)But it takes to long and finally she gets a different boyfriend. I also think in doing so she may have told him off ( she said why don't you just drop dead).I don't blame you for being you, but you can't blame me for hating it. She was 'being her' by just going with another guy, and he hates it. So next time he wants to be pushed along, so say what are you waiting for kiss her kiss her, so that he does not lose the girl. Set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late. That is really obvious, he was too late asking her. Also in the song I think he shows how perfect, or popular this girl is. Things like, your just the girl all the boys want to dance with, and You can make all the moves, you can aim all the spotlights
Get all the sighs and the moans just right. That's all I got! ;)

So some dude and chick were in love, but then he screwed things up like always and the chick was pretty hurt, all he could say was sorry (he couldnt stop thinking about her) and unfortunately she could care less about him.

Sep14 Actually, the parts of the Mass that are most meant to be sung are those parts that are the dialogue bweeten the people and the priest I can say with some degree of certainty that I have never heard someone say this before. Furthermore, while there's nothing (of which I am aware) wrong with chanting the dialogue, that can't be the part most meant to be sung, because the dialogue bweeten the priest and the congregation as a whole is not a continuous part of the Church's liturgical tradition. The tradition of the Church is for the Propers and the Ordinary to be sung. Certainly the parts most meant to be sung are those that the Church has insisted on having sung when possible for going on two thousand years. The dialogue permitted by modern amplification equipment may be nice and beneficial, but it has a tough row to how to live up to the importance ascribed it by the commenter above.

Nice post! Thought pnrvokiog.I happen to have a disability, albeit mobility related, and it doesn’t limit my web access much. I also am hard of hearing, and that does impact my ability to view videos that aren’t captionned.And I don’t advocate for web accessibility anywhere near as much as I used to. In the “olden days”, I was very vocal on the Mambo and Joomla! forum to ensure that the CMS would be accessible, both front-end and back-end. I was even invited on the core team of Joomla! to make it accessible. But there’s only so much hitting your head against a brick wall one can take. I saw from the inside that it was indeed only lip service.I’m just tired. Very tired.

Well think there is a movie called a little less 16 candles but it's about everyone forgetting her 16th birthday but other than that the song is just about a boy who really likes a girl but at every shot he has to ask her out he shys away

well i think, this song is about a boy and a girl that is already in a relationship. and the guy is rushed into things such as "kiss her! kiss her!" and the girl who i assume is out of this guy's league "the girl all the boys want to dance with" hates the guy for being slow. she dumps him. at the beginning of the song he said "i confessed i messed up, dropping im sorry like you're still around" which means she dumped him. then he wants her back 'sleeping on you're folks porch again dreaming" but then he realizes how mean or whatever negative about her."dreaming, why don't you just drop dead" and the chorus represents the guy fighting back. "i don't blame you for being you" he didn't want her to change. " but you can't blame me for hating it" he doesn't care. " i say my clock's early cause i know i'm always late" he knows he's slow so don't rush him

i think this song is about a boy who is too shy or slow with the girls. he fancy a popular girl but he is not selfconfident enough to ask her out. when he take courage the girl is already seeing another guy. in the end he says to himself "what are you waiting for? kiss her, kiss her" and "i set my clcks early 'cause i know i'm always late" this mean he was too slow with this girl and he was late because another guy is with the girk now
I agree with the people who say that it's about Pete wanting to be with the girl, but she's wanting to wait until she's sixteen. It makes sense because at the time he was dating a girl who was much younger than him. I think they began dating when she was 14 or 15 and he was in his young to mid twenties. He keeps pressuring her but she only gets angry at him for not understanding and then he keeps having to apologize and make sure she's not going to leave him. He feels like she's the girl everyone wants to be with, so he has to work that much harder to get her to stay with him.

I tend to think this song has a different meaning than what most people think. To me it's about realising our own selfish nature and trying to rise above it and be something better and stronger than what comes naturally to us. The lyrics "I set my clocks early cos you know I'm always late" says I know my faults but I'm taking steps to be better " this is reflected in the video, where Pete has been turned to a vampire, has acknowledged his own nature but is going to lengths not to let it overcome him, and to be better than what comes naturally to him.. even when faced with the temptation of taking a bite of a girl, He'd rather face the adversity of having to fight a gang of vampires than to give in to his nature. Possibly I'm wrong, but music is an art and art is interpretted differently to everyone.

I confess, I messed up
dropping "I'm sorry" like you're still around
[he keeps messing up, even after she told him to go away]
And I know you dressed up
"hey kid you'll never live this down"
[he’s telling her, that she maybe be ready to go, but she might never live it down]
'Cause you're just the girl all the boys want to dance with
And I'm just the boy who's had too many chances
[shes the girl all the boys want, and although she wanted him, he got too many chances]
I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming
She said, she said, she said, "Why don't you just drop dead?"
[he’s going to her house, or calling her, and dreaming about her, but she tells him to leave him alone, or “Drop dead”]
I don't blame you for being you
But you can't blame me for hating it
[he can’t blame her for not wanting him, but he hates her hating him]
So say, what are you waiting for?
Kiss her, kiss her
[telling himself to get her back]
I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late
[he’s always too late at trying to get her back]
Write me off, give up on me
Cause darling, what did you expect
I'm just off a lost cause
a long shot, don't even take this bet
[he’s putting himself down, telling her he’s not worth it, because he loves her so much, but she doesn’t want him]
You can make all the moves, you can aim all the spotlights
Get all the sighs and the moans just right
[he’s probably dreaming about having sex with her]
You said you'd keep me, honest
[I recon there is supposed to be a comma there, like “You said you’d keep me”, and honest was like a promise]
But I won't call you on it
[but he won’t count on her for it, because she broke his heart]

A guy could have asked out a girl but he didn't (I confess I messed up, dropping I'm sorry lik you're still around)and his friends keep reminding him (Hey kid, you'll never live this down) and now he'll never get her (You're just the girl all the boys wanna dance with) after many chances, (And I'm just the boy whose had to many chances) so now he hopes to get her back (sleeping on your folks porch again) but she hates it (Why don't you just drop dead?) He hates that she's so popular (I don't blame you, for being you, but you can't blame me for hating it) but his friends keep telling him to go for it, (Kis her! Kiss her!) And then he gives up (Give up on me cause darling what did you expect? I'm just off a lost cause, a long shot don't even take this bet) But he has one final attempt (I set my clocks early cause I know I'm always late)

im probably wrong, but i think that the song is called what it is cause of samantha fox (who sand touch me) and molly ringwald (actress in 16 candles). molly is the kinda girl you'd fall in love with, whilst samantha is the type to have fun with. the song is called a little LESS 16 candles a little MORE touch me, because he is seeing both types of girl, and the one he truely loves has left him. yeah. tis all :)

Well I think it's about a geeky boy and that all over popular girl and the "Cause you're just the girl all the boys want to dance with and I'm just the boy who's had too many chances" part is like every boy wants her and he's had all theses chances to maybe ask her out but he dosent
and he sleeps on her pourch just to possibly see her before everyone else and she says drop dead to make him leave her alone and "I don't blame you for being you
But you can't blame me for hating it" is what the guy thinks like he likes he but can't help to hate her and he says I set my clocks early because I know I'm always late because he needs to remember he likes her but can't help to hate her too and "Write me off, give up on me Cause darling, what did you expect I'm just off a lost cause
a long shot, don't even take this bet" is her thought to him to make him leave her alone and you stand in the spot light and those lyrics are about how she's so perfect to everyone and so different to him that's why he likes her and then the top verse is actually what happens in the end "I confess messed up dropping I'm sorry like you're still around And I know you dressed up hey kid you'll never live this down" is in the whole thing the end like she set him up for the put down and falls for him through it all but he gets over her and she begs for him back well that's what I think the song is :D
"I confess, I messed up
Droppin, 'I'm sorry', like you're still around
And I know you dressed up
'hey kid, you'll never live this down'"
He knows it was a mistake to wait as long as he did to tell her how he felt about her. He feels he'll always regret that.
"You're just the girl all the boys want to dance with
And I'm just a boy who's had too many chances"
All the boys would love to be with her and he had many chances to tell her how he felt and actually get her but didn't take them.
"I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming
She said, she said, she said, 'Why don't you just drop dead?'"
He finally tells her how he feels but it's to late. She's most likely with another guy. He tries hard to win her over but she's angry that he waited so long.
"I don't blame you for being you
But you can't blame me for hating it
So say, "What are you waiting for? Kiss her! Kiss her!"
I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late"
He understands that she had to move on with her life but he also hates that she did. Either his friends or his conscience was the one telling him to just kiss her when he had the chance but he didn't. And it was to late when he finally tried to.
"Write me off, give up on me
'Cause darling what did you expect
I'm just off a lost cause
A long shot, don't even take this bet"
He already feels she gave up on him and he doesn't blame her. He feels as if he isn't worth anything, especially not her and that she shouldn't expect a lot from him.
"You can make all the moves, you can aim all the spotlights
Get all the sighs and the moans just right"
He's saying he can do everything perfectly to win her over but either way, it's to late.

I think this song is about a guy dating a girl but always being late for dates and always just keeping her waiting for everything (cause you know he's always late) and she tells him off and breaks up with him (why don't you just drop dead) and he gets upset and wants to try to fix things but she won't let him in the house to talk so he just sits there (sleeping on your folks porch again) and she is just a perfect/beautiful girl (your just the girl all the boys wanna dance with) and she gave him so many chances cause she liked him but then realized he wasn't mature (and I'm just the boy who's had too many chances)
thats my interpretation
anonymous Feb 1st, 2009 2:41am report
This is obviously a relationship song (duh!) I personally think that it is about a boy who cheated on his girlfriend (I'm just a boy whos had to many chances) P.S. Most every fall out boy music video I've seen hasn't gone with the song, like at all. I.e. Sugar were going down, and The take over the breaks over. P.S.S. I love the music video for this song. Pete Wentz is so hot as a vampire! (i'm a girl)
