Seventeen

Was seventeen, I was living life chasing dreams
And my hopes were high
Trying to get around my fear
Of when and where do I go from here

I asked somebody close to me
Who could see a lot further than a boy could see, Oh and he said

Oh my oh my oh my, these days are flying by
I still feel seventeen inside, not one day over
Don't let the trials of life, change who you are tonight
Stay seventeen each time you get one year older

He said you're at that time of life when your heart is strong
Future's bright, you can do no wrong
And don't you let those feelings out of sight
Keep a hold of them as the years go rolling by

His words have always stuck with me
But now I'm only getting what it all appears to mean, When he said

Oh my oh my oh my, these days are flying by
I'm still seventeen inside, not one day over
I won't let the trials of life, change who I am tonight
Stay seventeen each time, you get one year older

He said; my years have come and gone, in oh such little time
And I hope you live your life the way that I lived mine
Stay young at heart, stay young in mind
So I said

Oh my oh my oh my, these days are flying by
I'm still seventeen inside, not one day over
I won't let the trials of life, change who I am tonight
Stay seventeen each time, you get one year older

One year older, one year older
Oh my oh my oh my, oh my oh my oh my
So stay seventeen each time you get one year older
