Paraphrase

—When I first looked at the title “The Trouble with Girls” I thought it was about girls who are difficult. When I started to read and really focused on the song it was about a teenage boy trying to figure out girls. Through out the song it explains how girls take his breath away. With the girls being difficult that’s what he likes. He says the good ones are hard to find. But when you find that good girl, You don’t want that night to end or that moment.
