Birdeatsbaby – Seventeen lyrics

When I was seventeen
I met a man
Gave him all my dreams
Told him all my plans

Plans to rule the earth
Plans to tear apart
Plans to be the queen
Of his broken heart

The sorrow is

When I was seventeen
I met a boy
And together we would dream
But always destroy

So in love with his pain
Turning deathly pale
He would always reign
In our fairytale

The sorrow is

Young and full of pride
We raged and spat and screamed:
Put out all their eyes
Never let them see

His heart was always drunk
Pity for the ones
The ones who knew him well
Now I never will

When I was seventeen
He took me in his arms
And he swore on to me
To keep my safe from harm

But everything must end
And everyone must pay
My fairytale friend
He only fades away

When I was seventeen
I met a man
Gave him all my dreams
Told him all my plans

Now I'll never tell
All that I have seen
And we said farewell
When I was seventeen
