Sharon Van Etten – Seventeen

Sharon Van Etten - Seventeen

I know what you wanna say
I think that you're all the same
Constantly being led astray
He's thinking of something you don't

Downtown hotspot
Halfway up the street
I used to be free
I used to be seventeen
Follow my shadow
Around your corner
I used to be seventeen
Now you're just like me

Down beneath the ashes and the stone
Sure of what I've lived and have known
I see you so uncomfortably alone
I wish I could show you how much you've grown

Downtown hotspot
I used to be on this street
I used to be seventeen
I used to be seventeen
Now you're a hotshot
Hanging on my block
Sun coming up
Who is my shadow?

La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

I know what you're gonna be
I know that you're gonna be
You're crumbling up just to see
Afraid that you'll be just like me

Downtown hotspot
Halfway through this life
I used to feel free
Was it just a dream?
Now you're a hotshot
Think you're so carefree
But you're just seventeen
So much like me
You're just seventeen
You're just seventeen
Seventeen
