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 agree with whoever said the video (Sixteen Candles) and the song (Touch Me) are two different things because I think the song if about a guy who likes a popular girl, but the girl isn't interested (You're just the girl all the boys wanna dance with. And I'm just the boy who's had too many chances.) But the video is all about Pete being a vampire. :|

"I keep my jealousy close, and it's all mine" - his jealousy is the only thing he has, and no one else is taking it like they've taken everything else of his.
"And if you say this makes you happy then I'm not the only one lying" - they're both not being true to themselves or each other. They're saying and doing what they think the other one wants, because they're too afraid to face up to things and sort their problems out. They're both unhappy with their lives.
"Keep quiet, nothing comes as easy as you, can I lay in your bed all day? I'll be your best-kept secret and your biggest mistake, the hand behind this pen relives a failure every day" - again, he just wants to hide away, cuddle up in bed with her, just be happy in their little cocoon. He will be her biggest mistake because he will drag her down with his problems, but her best-kept secret because no one will realise the extent of his effect on her. He's telling her he writes down his emotions in songs, which should be a catharthic way of letting out pain, but actually, he's just reliving his pain every time he writes a song.
"So wear me like a locket around your throat, I'll weigh you down, I'll watch you choke, you look so good in blue, you look so good in blue" - his depression and dependence on her is going to drag her down. She feels tied to him because he needs her so much, and he's too weak to help himself or stop being a burden on her, so he just stands, watching her choke, crumble under the stress of the problems he's given her. He's almost loving the depression he's wallowing in, because he says she looks 'so good in blue' - blue being the colour of melancholy.

It's about how a guy is REALLY in love with this girl, but she doesn't feel the same for him. So, he is soooo desperate, he sleeps on her porch. She doesn't like him so she thinks he is weird and should "drop dead"

This song can be interpreted in so many ways. I think it's about a guy that is in a relationship where he feels like he doesn't contribute enough. He says "I'm a lost cause" hinting at the fact that he can't help the way he is. I also think he lost her and he's trying to go back and fix everything... but he can't. He feels like she is too good for him and he can't do anything right. This song makes it evident that he has a guilty conscience.

I think it's about how this hot girl celebrates her sixteenth birthday and invites her boyfriend along, only he sets his hair on fire with the 16 candles by mistake and the girl laughs at him so the boy slaps her and says, "I don't blame you for being you, but MY HAIR IS ON FIRE!"
And then she punches the boy so hard he dies on her front porch, and he sighs and moans ... AFTER he dies. So the girl gets freaked out and starts saying, "ARGH!!" and all the Spirits of the Dead says to the dead boy, "Kiss her!! Kiss her!!"
And the girl says, "NO! Why don't you just drop dead?!"
And the boy says, "I AM dead."
And the girl commits suicide.

I think it's about a guy and a girl that have spilt up, but the guy wants to get back with the girl but she's not interested, hence the line "I'm sleeping on your folks porch again, dreaming, she saidx3 why don't you just drop dead". Although there's qualities about her that he doesn't like "I Don't blame you for being you, but you can't blame for hating it". He'll still do anything to be with her.

I totally agree that this song is about a boy who is in love with a girl and doesn't want to rush into the realtionship or pressure her. However his friends want him to hurry up and "Kiss her, kiss her" and and make him aware that he is acting slowly. He becomes aware of this mentioned in "I set my clock early 'cause I know I'm always late."

wow that's strange
i think it's about a guy who really likes and belives he is in love with this girl and wants to take it slow with her but everybody is pressuring him to go faster and how he will do anything for her and he just obsesses over her 24/7
