Seventeen

Hey guys!

So there are a lot of songs about 16 and 18 and 15. There's a 21 and a 22.

But there aren't any about 17, so I decided to fix that.






Seventeen




Honestly I wish we could never grow up
I wish we could just stay young
Avoid all the responsibilities 
of being eighteen 



Chorus
I wish we could stay 
seventeen forever
I wish life didn't have to be so hard
Why can't we, stay seventeen



Happily ever afters don't exist in real life
Peter Pan isn't coming for you tonight
Tinkerbell is just a firefly in the night sky
Believing gets harder each year


Chorus


Bridge
I hate having to grow up so fast
Why do I have to leave my childhood behind?


Chorus


-Lilah

  1. I know one about being seventeen, but its not that great, lol. In my opinion anyway. Its by Stars Go Dim and its called ...
    *drumroll*

    Seventeen. (Did you guess it?) XD

    Anyway, this was great. Super relate-able to everyone. I felt the same way when I was turning eighteen. (Kinda still feel the same way.)

  5. That is nicely done, Lilah! (Coming from another 17-year-old ;) ) I'm always so fascinated to read song lyrics someone has written themselves, I sure can't do it! Sing song lyrics, yes. Write stories, sort of, yeah. But not songs! You have talent, my dear!

    And I saw you BlimeyCow reference in another comment, hooray for BlimeyCow fans!! :D
