One Hit Wonders

Teen Angel

The song is about a girl and her boyfriend who go out for a ride together. He pulls her to safety when their car is stalled on a railroad track in the path of an oncoming train. But then she runs back to the car, and is killed in the collision. When her body is recovered, the narrator’s high school class ring is in her hand, apparently the reason that she ran back. The last verse ends with the lyrics: “I’ll never kiss your lips again/ They buried you today.” The final line in the coda asks the Teen Angel to: “Answer me, please.”
