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 harks back
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 harks back
I used to be on this street
I used to be seventeen
I used to be seventeen
Now you're half shy
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 harks back
Halfway through this life
I used to feel free
Was it just a dream?
Now you're half shy
Think you're so carefree
But you're just seventeen
So much like me
You're just seventeen
You're just seventeen
Seventeen
