Dave Barnes - Seventeen

rate me

She bought a ticket on a midnight train

To a place she'd never leave again

She blamed it all on her daddy's sins

I blamed it all on me

And I was just a foolish boy

It was love enough to fill the void

Said the words to hear the noise

It was deafening

I never knew that things would change

What we were then, what we became

Oh, we were seventeen

They found her there late that night

On a bed under hotel lights

Trying to make a couple wrong things right

Start over clean

She never did say goodbye

I never did apologize

I knew the words, but I could not lie

I just watched her leave

Watched her leave

I never knew that things would change

What we were then, what we became

Oh, we were seventeen

We wasted time, we wasted tears

We waved goodbye to golden years

Oh, we were seventeen

Beneath the wreckage there's a reason, a reason

Something they looked so hard to see

I took and placed the blame

But still I feel the same

Someone just say it wasn't me

I don't think about her like I should

I used to try but it did no good

She'd forgive me if she only could

We were seventeen
