rate me

(Intro)

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, x 2

(Verse)

My daddy says that life comes at you fast

We all like blades of grass

We come to prime and in time we just wither away

And it all changes

My view with a lookin glass won’t catch the past

Only photographs remind us of the passin of days

Oh nothin stays the same from yesteryears

See I recall bein afraid of the dark

And holdin on to teddy bears

I’d wrap myself in blankets just to cover me from fears

That was then and now I’m here

And the night is mine

(Chorus)

So hear me scream

I was too young to understand what it means

I couldn’t wait till I could be seventeen

I thought he lied when he said take my time to drea

Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

I’m Seventeen

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

Seventeen

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

Seventeen

Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen

(Verse)

My mother said don’t forget where you come from, where you’ve been

Always keep your closest friends they can't slip away

They keep you grounded

Ooh keep yourself surrounded with good advice

And yeah I guess that sounded nice when I was 10

Oh but never were there true words

And I’ll my days I’ve ever heard

And when she told me little girl the answer is love

So those are words that I keep with me

Though the seasons change so quickly

Keep em buried in my heart

And never fought

(Chorus)

[Bridge]

I been going on, I been growing up

I’m a know it all, I don’t know enough

See I was racin and waitin for the day that I would be old enough

Guess I’ll be patient and pace myself gotta prepare for when goin rough

(Chorus)
