Hey people i always got this doubt, what the meaning of the age of the understatement in those parts of the music:
And there's affection to rent
The age of the understatement
Before the attraction ferments
Kiss me properly and pull me apart

Affection to rent the age of the understatement
Before this attraction ferments
Kiss me properly and pull me apart

thanks for future answers.

We recommend that you do not attempt to use the lyrics of pop songs as a means of learning English.

hey folks i think i got the answer i find in internet ^^ is like the age when you dont care too much the things you do like you undestate the things you do, by what i saw this album said about the 20 years i guess like people in this age dont care about things they do and they understate all.

I've just noticed that English is your native language, darksoda. I won't ask which school you went to.

ESL students are advised that posts 3, 5 and 6 are not to be taken as typical examples of English as it is written by the average native speaker.

If your native language is really English, use it correctly or your posts will be ignored.
