What do you these song lyrics mean?

These are the lyrics to Twenty One by The Cranberries.... Here's a link if you want to hear it

I don't think it's going to happen anymore.

You took my thoughts from me.

Now I want nothing more.

And did you think you could just take it all away?

I don't think it's happ'ning, this is what I say.

Leave me alone, leave me alone,

Leave me alone 'cause I found it all.

Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one...

So I don't think it's going to happen anymore.

I don't think it's going,

To happen anymore.

Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one... [X 2]

Today... [X 4]

Twenty one... [X 14]

I know that the singer/band started getting famous when she was 21 (in '92 or '93... I wasn't born yet, so I'm not sure). So it probably has something to do with that. But, I also think the song is talking about how, when you're young, you have all these ideas on the world and life. Then, when you're older, you realize that nothing is how you thought it'd be, and it's sort of disillusioning. (I'm 16 and don't have much life experience yet... so forgive me if that's not true).

What do you think?
