Take me to your house
And show me to all your family
I don't care about
The fool that it makes me seem
'Cause I know that you're 17
And I'm just an aging dandy
The world is light and dark
And we live in between

When I was a boy
I wandered the streets of downtown
Staring at the sky
And feeling that I didn't belong
In a world where the gentle seem wrong
And teeth get knocked out on Sundays
I lay down in the shower
And make it go away

This fading world
My lovely girl

And I know that you're 17
And I'm just an aging dandy
The world is light and dark
And we live in between
