lyrics

I lost my way when I was young
Never learned to compromise
Cuz who I am won't let me sacrifice
And she told me once I could be
Oh anything at all
But I never knew I had so much to lose

And I loved her more than I can say
And it's a shame it's not today
To give me all that I deserve
We loved for hours and talked for more
Wished we couldn't grow old cold
But nothing's fair at 17
I'm just stranger to this world

I loved the way she stood so still around me
Like I was the only one who let her be
Making the choices like it didn't matter
Never went to far without her no no no
But youth is something in the past
Now wisdom gathered
Oh and the wrinkles no they don't flatter
Gotta hold onto to something, gotta hold onto something
Cuz she's pulling me down

And I loved her more than I can say
And it's a shame it's not today
To give me all that I deserve
We loved for hours and talked for more
Wished we couldn't grow old cold
But nothing's fair at 17

Well I don't know who I am today
And I don't know where I belong
But all I am is all that I deserve
So we let it go, and we let it show

And I loved her more than I can say
And it's a shame it's not today
To give me all that I deserve
We loved for hours and talked for more
Wished we couldn't grow old cold
But nothing's fair at 17
I'm just a stranger to this world
