Meaning, Main Idea and Message of The Song

Among precious things in life is youth. This period is commonly represented by teenagers' lifestyle. It's the period when we see everything quite differently. Things which adult people see as unimportant or even wasteful are regarded very important by teenagers. The period is characterized by excitement. In fact, teenagers' life is about everything exciting. Instead of reason, it's feeling which dominantly drives whatever they do. If they find something as interesting, they will do it whatever it takes. In contrast, if they feel something as boring and uninteresting, however useful the thing is, then they will refuse it. This statement is proved by One Direction's Live While We're Young song lyric which will be explained below.

Based on the lyric of the song above, I can conclude that this One Direction's Live While We're Young song tells about teenagers' life. If you wonder, the following is the teenagers' life described by the song: They are determined to keep doing whatever they want regardless what other people say about them (verse 2). If the girl's parents prohibit them to go out, then the boy will sneak her out (verse 1). They like to enjoy the night. They even like to go crazy till the sun comes up (Chorus part). Different from adult who think everything deeply, they tend to take anything easy and never think about the consequence of what they do (verse 4). They often document their craziness in the form of photos which, when it is spread to public, can mess up their life (verse 4).

Reading the above paragraph, you may think the period has nothing good. If you really think so, then I must say that you are wrong. It's true that this period in life is usually filled with something wasteful. Teenagers often waste anything they could: they waste their energy, their money, and their time. However, you must keep it in mind that while they do waste, they are trying to find their life calling. You know, such a thing cannot be found by using reason. It can only be pursued using feeling. So, however bad they period may seem, it is a very important phase of human life.

Well, that's my interpretation of One Direction's Live While We're Young song. Your comments are highly appreciated.
