We were just seventeen and all alone
We had our hands in the gutter
But our hearts in the warm clouds
She said, "I know it's gonna hurt like hell
But it's alright"
We were just seventeen and so in love

We were owls when they came in the night
We were looking for a creature to fight
I can see it, that you're ready to go
Like a bat in the cave of my soul

We were just seventeen and so afraid
We were balloons in the hands of our mothers
In a Jesus parade
She said, "I know it's gonna burn like a fire, but it's alright"
Oh, we were just seventeen and so in love
So in love!

We were owls when they came in the night
We were looking for a creature to fight
I can see it, that you're ready to go
Like a bat in the cave of my soul

We had nothing but the blood on our hands
We were sitting but we're willing to stand
We were owls barely escaping the day
Another and we'd give it away
