Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man Lyrics

He was 16, tender and tough
She was too, and he’d do anything to prove his love
With so much riding on the choice at hand,
The spirit of a boy, or the wisdom of a man

Hearts caught fire and love ran wild

    It seems the songwriter was conveying the fact that, for every decision we make in our lives, there is a consequence. Realistically, there are only 2 choices we have in life
    The spirit of a bit seems to be a 'gung ho' 'all guns blazing' kind of approach to life. Look after number one, act first, think later.
    The wisdom of a man however, seems to be a decision made after weighing up the consequences and it's effect on others, not just a temporary result for yourself.
    It's a great attitude to have in life.
