  • 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
