Edge Of Seventeen – Stevie Nicks lyrics

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh

And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, "Baby
Nothin' else mattered"

He was no more than a baby then
Well, he seemed broken hearted
Something within him
But the moment that I first laid
Eyes on him all alone
On the edge of seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Said, ooh baby, ooh, said, ooh

Well, I went today, maybe I will go again tomorrow
Yeah, yeah, well, the music there well, it was hauntingly familiar
When I see you doing what I try to do for me
With the words from a poet and the voice from a choir
And a melody, nothing else mattered

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Said, ooh baby, ooh, said, ooh

The clouds never expect it when it rains
But the sea changes colors
But the sea does not change
So with the slow graceful flow of age
I went forth with an age old desire to please
On the edge of seventeen, ooh

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh

Well, then suddenly there was no one
Left standing in the hall
Yeah, yeah in a flood of tears
Like no one really ever heard fall at all

Well, I went searchin' for an answer
Up the stairs and down the hall
Not to find an answer, just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singing, "Come away"

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Said, ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

Well, I hear you in the morning
And I hear you at nightfall
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you, my love
I'm a few years older than you, my love

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh said, ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said, ooh
