Strangers into girlfriends from a one night stand
Not even that girl of your dreams. He’s celebrating making poor choices throughout the song and rationalizing it. Sometimes after a one night stand, parties confuse sexual attraction with something more, possibly to avoid the awkward conclusion that they fell to their baser instincts and slept with a stranger from a bar.
He’s saying you never knew where the night would take you. He was young and sometimes he thought he know the role people would play, and they became more. Like meeting a girl, thinking it will be a one night stand, and having that girl become much more.
