You Only Live Once Lyrics

Ooooooooh Ooooh Ooooh
Some people think they're always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others they seem so very nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, nice...(oh-ho)
Inside they might feel sad and wrong (oh no)

Twenty-nine different attributes

    I think the song has to do about him meeting a girl and him not getting along with her and she is calm and actually tries to calm him down. And one day she gets tired of him and leaves thats when he say's "I'll be waiting for you". And he regrets being that way with her.

    I think this song has something to do with smoking as they once said in an interview that though there are many pushes to stop smoking, "you only live once". This gives an explanation to the video, where the band are playing in a white room and tobacco liquid suddenly fills the room and they start drowning.
