Dave Barnes Seventeen Lyrics

sponsored links
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
