High School Sweethearts Lyrics

Can we just be honest?
These are the requirements
If you think you can be my one and only true love
You must promise to love me
And damn it, if you fuck me over
I will rip your fucking face apart
Step one
You must accept that I'm a little...

    Crybaby is listing the requirements for her to love you. She says that they have to:
    1. Accept her for who she is
    2. Learn to be with her until the end ('finish line' is a metaphor for 'end').
    3. Give her passion and love; don't judge her
    4. Not be ashamed of their relationship
    5. If they cheat, then, well... they'll regret it.
    I think she's realizing why none of her ex-boyfriends or past crushes worked out (Alphabet Boy, Blue Boy, Johnny, etc.). They weren't her type; they were a waste of her heart.

    She is saying that if people is not right to be with her to not bother and find someone else. And if they cheat Melanie/crybaby will be mad and break up with them. If you don’t agree I don’t know what to say...

    In my perspective, I think this song is about how Crybaby wants to be with someone who would accept her the way she is, wouldn't cheat on her,treat her right,and more. Due to all the other ones she's been with (Johnny, Blue Boy, Alphabet Boy, etc.) she wants someone who would make it with her to the end.

    I think that high school sweethearts is about crybaby realizing why all her exes Alphabet Boy, Jhonny, Blue Boy ect. didn't work out. So she makes sure that doesn't happen anymore, she releases the song listing her dating rules. I think i'm pretty close I don't know. :)

    Melanie wrote this song for her current boyfriend Oliver Tree.
    I think it's kinda cute to write a song for your boyfriend.

    Crybaby is listing these rules about what you have to do to be her true love and gets heartbroken by many guys who didn't treat her right. And is telling guys not to go for her if they're not her type.
