To this day when I hear that song
I see you standin' there all night long
Discount shades, store-bought tan, flip flops and cut off jeans
Somewhere between that set and the sun
I'm on fire, I'm born to run
You looked at me and I was done
Well, with just gettin' started
I was singin' to you, you were singin' to me
I was so alive, never been more free
Fired up my daddy's lighter, we sang oh woah woah
Stayed there till' they forced us out,
Took the long way to your house,
I can still hear the sound of you sayin' don't go.

When I think about you, I think about seventeen
I think about my old jeep, I think about the stars in the sky
Funny how the melody sounds like a memory,
Like a soundtrack to a july saturday night.
Springsteen.

I bumped into you by happenstance,
Probably wouldn't even know who I am
But if I whispered your name I bet, still be a spark.
Back when I was gasoline, and this old tattoo had brand new ink,
And we didn't care what your momma thinks about your name on my arm.
Baby is it spring or is it summer,
The guitar sound or the beat of that drummer
You hear sometimes late at night on your radio.
Even though you're a million miles away,
When you hear Born In The USA,
You relive those glory days so long ago.

When you think about me, do you think about seventeen
Do you think about my old jeep, think about the stars in the sky
Funny how the melody sounds like a memory,
Like a soundtrack to a july saturday night.
Springsteen.

Springsteen

(X2)
Oh woah woahh oh
Oh woah woahh oh
Oh woah woahh oh oh oh

Funny how the melody sounds like a memory,
Like a soundtrack to a july saturday night.
Springsteen
Springsteen
Oh Springsteen

(X4)
Oh woah woahh oh
Oh woah woahh oh
Oh woah woahh oh oh oh

    Every time I hear this song I think of love. How his older now and every time he sees the girl he feel in love with at 17, he says I bet there well still be something between us if we had a night out with the both of us. He also said every time I think of 17 I think of you and what we did when we were 17, and he asked her when you think of 17 so you think of the same things I was thinking of!
    Idk its really hard for me to type down what I think what this song means, I could tell you but not type.

    When I hear this song, I think about when you meet someone and everything is right! When we saw each other and hung out more, it just felt right. Back when I was gasoline (he is a volunteer for the fd, so it's perfect). We met in the spring and each moment we spend together, it just proves that we should be together. This song reminds me of him! I

    I was engaged to my fiancee for about a year after we had dated for 5. We started dating when we were both 17 and I proposed to her 3 weeks before eric churches concert. The ring had just been sized to her finger, and we saw eric play this song at the western idaho fair for free. I remember it as the best night of my life, seeing my favorite artist perform "springsteen" which was my favorite song from the cd. The video of the song was released 3 days after she gave me my engagement ring back. This song has special meanings to me, as well as it does to many. I find myself wondering if in the next 10 years if I saw her and said her name, if there might still be a spark. This song is still my favorite, and sometimes if I listen to it at the right time, it chokes me up a bit.
