No one said that seventeen would come this fast
And no one ever said that 16 wouldn’t last
Standing beneath the street light on 52nd
You never thought you wouldn’t recognize your own reflection
You’ll spend a night all alone Hang up the telephone
Search yourself for the answers
No one here’s going to help you While everyone has a plan and you think What am I doing?
You’ll sit and watch as their dreams come true But that’s only because you’re supposed to
But all the while you know you haven’t got any way But if you tried a little harder, then you’d get away
Don’t know much but you know you got to get away Why the hell would you ever want to leave this place But if you did, then where would you ever go Going nowhere else is so much easier you know
No one said that seventeen would come this fast You’re still a kid that’s just living in the past They want something that you know that you can’t give You know it’s true, to them you’re still just a kid
Seventeen starts to feel so far away I never thought I wouldn’t know
