"I met this girl when I was ten years old"

from Common – The Next Chapter (Still Love H.E.R.) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

From the first verse of Common’s 1994 I Used to Love H.E.R., to which this track acts as “the next chapter.”

In the original song, the love affair with the girl was an extended metaphor for Common’s relationship with hip hop culture

Note that Common previously revisited the “H.E.R.” concept with his verse on The Roots' “Act Too..The Love of my Life”
