• Troye explained:
From the Album
"'Youth' is a song about the joy in naivety and being lost. It's about dropping everything,
running away, making mistakes, and loving too hard, and how that's okay."
• He further explained:
"I was sitting in the writing room with Allie X before we started writing this song and she was in
her Tumblr inbox. There was a message from a fan that said 'Allie X my youth is yours' and I was just like
oh my God that is so poetic and awesome and such a cool way to say 'I'm experiencing my youth to your music.'
It just hit me in so many different contexts. If you get into a relationship when you're young with someone you're
giving them your young years you're giving them your youth. But also from my perspective a little bit
I felt like it meant something to me with my audience, having been online since I was 12 I feel like
I really have given a lot of my youth to a lot of people. So it just kind of hit me in all these different
ways and then we started writing the song."
