How can someone so young sing words so sad?

For the readers that are newish to the blog, yes I put a lot of songs and lyrics in here…why?… this post of Caren’s says it better than I ever could.  Here’s some lyrics (and a tune) that I’m also loving at the moment…alas in the past I’ve been the "girl" in this song.

This one: ‘I would be sad’

I would be sad because you left me all alone.
I would be sad because the lies that you had told.
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adore.
I would be sad because the love I had before.

I meant what I said when I said I would settle down with you although I know it’s not something that you were asking me to do.
And I know we are young but we won’t always be, so marry me; lets not be that predictable young couple changing, moving on.
But I can tell by watching you that there’s no chance of pushing through.
The odds are so against us; you know most young love it ends like this.

I would be sad because you left me all alone.
I would be sad because the lies that you had told.
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adore.
I would be sad for all the love I had before.

I meant what I said when I said I would rearrange my plans and change for you.
You know me; I’ve always been the kind with easy confidence.
Confident enough to honestly believe that nothing out there stopping me

especially not someone who’s not loving me.
Now listen here I told you I could live on without loving you.
I was bluffing then, but it seems that just might have been the truth.
Well my dad told me, "One day son, this girl will think of what she’s done

and hurting you will be the first of many more regrets to come."
And he said, "If she doesn’t call, then it’s her fault and it’s her loss."
I say, "It’s not that simple see, but then again it just may be."

I would be sad because you left me all alone.
I would be sad for the lies that you had told.
I would be sad because I got left by a girl that I adored.
I would be sad for all the love I had before.
I would be sad for all the love I had before.
