Seventeen

Know-It-All


Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh

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 looking glass
Won't catch the past
Only photographs remind us of the passing of days
Oh nothing stays the same from yesteryears
See I recall being afraid of the dark
And holding 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

So hear me scream
I was too young to understand what it means
I couldn't wait til
I could be seventeen
I thought he lied when he said
"Take my time to dream"
Now I wish I could freeze the time
at seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
I'm Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Now I wish I could freeze the time
at seventeen

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
Oh keep yourself surrounded with good advice
And yeah I guess that sounded nice when I was ten
Oh but never were there truer words
And all 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 them buried in my heart
And never fought

So hear me scream
I was too young to understand what it means
I couldn't wait
til I could be seventeen
I thought she lied when she said
"take your time to breathe"
Now I wish I could freeze the time
At seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
I'm Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Now I wish I could freeze the time
At seventeen

I been goin on, I been growin up
I'm a know it all, I don't know enough
See I was racing
and waiting for the day that I would be old enough
Guess I'll be patient
and pace myself gotta prepare for when goings rough

I was too young to understand what it means
I couldn't wait til
I could be seventeen
I thought she lied when she said
"Take your time to breathe"
Now I wish I could freeze the time
At seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
I'm Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Now I wish I could freeze the time
At seventeen
