You are young but so am I
And this is wrong but who am I to judge
You feel like heaven when we touch
I guess for me this is enough

We're one mistake from being together
But let's not ask why it's not right
You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight

You are young and I am scared
You're wise beyond your years, but I don't care
And I can feel your heart beat
You know exactly where to take me

We're one mistake from being together
But let's not ask why it's not right
You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Will you remember me?
You ask me as I leave
Remember what I said?
Oh how could I
Oh how could I forget

We're one mistake from being together
But let's not ask why it's not right
You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight

We're one mistake from being together
But let's not ask why it's not right
You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight.

We're one mistake from being together
But let's not ask why it's not right
You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight.

Ooh ooh. Ooh ooh.
And we can get away with this tonight.
Ooh ooh. Ooh ooh.
And we can get away with this tonight.
Ooh ooh. Ooh ooh.
Ooh ooh. Ooh ooh.

    Sdsneonpinkluv, I hate you.

    How can you hate metro station! Respect people! If you hate them then don't write it ijn their own song's comment box! Plus you have -6 now on your coment in which you reveal that you hate metro station (you stink, hate you) and you had better take it back if you want to be at least A bit popular on Lyricsmode.

    Btw if you hate Mewtro Station then you are a lonely stupid dim-witted numbskull who lives alone and has no taste in music. Thanx. =P

    P. S. If you are not sdsneonpinkluv please vote up not down thanks =]

    When I first heard this song I thought the third verse went like this: '"Will you remember me?" you ask me as I leave. "Remember what?" I said. Oh how could I, oh how could I forget?. ' Like he was breaking it off, because he knew he wasn't good for her, but was thinking about how he would never forget her. I think partly because there's a pause after "I said" as if that finishes the thought. Plus, though songs rarely have "proper grammar" that would make it parellel structure and make more sense, "" you said, "" I said. I don't know, I think it could be interpreted either way.

    Forget twilight. I think its about a young couple in love, but one of them is oler, and going to be growing up and moving on with life. And the younger one wishes the older one would be 'seventeen forever' so they could stay together, but knows its not possible.

    It's about being a kid, and having fun while you're still you. You're not '17 Forever". This song definately should have been in Twilight-it reflects the situation that Bella and Edward are in. It's kind of sad :(
    But the song is pretty. Um. Awesome! I like the beat and I love Mason and Trace's voice! It's kind of mysterious. This song is on my myspace because it's the best: D

    I don't really think it's about an older person trying to get with a younger person since it says "You are young but so am I"
    I agree that it's about being young and foolish.

    Haha, it's good timing on their part to come out with a song called Seventeen Forever with all the Twilight craze going on. It made the song popular pretty fast.
