Twilight Lyrics

I look into his eyes
They're closed but I see something
A teacher told me why
I laugh when old men cry
My body grows and grows
It frightens me you know
The old man tried to walk me home
I thought he should have known

    Twilight is sometimes defined as the time of day when neither Sun or Moon is present. In this case it means not being a child but still not being a grown-up. "In the shadow, boy meets man": adolescence is when a person starts to become an adult. U2 were teenagers when this was made and the whole album reflects many themes associated with adolescence.
