Seventeen Lyrics - Mat Kearney

Review The Song (0)



I was only seventeen
Livin' out a reckless dream
Ridin' those summer streets
To the corner of high and thirteen
Me and other VD boys
Runnin' too wild too bored
Lookin' for the grown man's toys
Out at that corner store
Well they threw the money to me and somebody's ID

[Chorus]
I was in the parking lot scared as hell
Sent the sixteen dollars down a wishing well
Two bottles of wine those red and blue lights
Took a trip down town for the very first time
Watching my whole life flash before my eyes
Like I was seventeen

sponsored links
She was from across the tracks
With a private school laugh
We were both falling too fast
Down a river that wouldn't last
It was only one night and our first time

[Chorus]
I was in the parking lot scared as hell
Sending sixteen dollars down the wishing well
I held her tight between those yellow lines
We sat there crying 'bout a miscarried life
Watching my whole life flash before my eyes
Like I was seventeen

Oh it was a lifetime ago
And I prayed for mercy
Walking on down that road
I led the woman of my dreams
And she said yes to me
And she's sayin', "Baby I'm late, I'm never this late.
I'm feeling a change, we should find out either way."
And I'm grabbing my keys and I'm shutting the front door
I can hardly breathe driving that familiar road
And I'm parked between those yellow lines
Lookin' down that aisle
Don't know whether to laugh or whether to cry

[Chorus]
I was in the parking lot scared as hell
Sending sixteen dollars down the wishing well
Two pink lines, or maybe just one
Could by my daughter or it could be my son
Watching our whole lives flash before my eyes
Like I was seventeen

Funny how the years switch around the tears that way
Like I was seventeen
