Never thought it would be me
Living in a shattered dream
How could this be the end for me?
What I wouldn't give to have
A life to live, a day to plan
Instead I'll be forever seventeen

Could have lived out every dream
I could have been most anything

Can someone wake me up?
I haven't lived yet
I'm only seventeen
God, did you forget?
I'm just a baby
And I don't wanna be
Forever seventeen

I'll never have a bed to make
A test to take, a summer day
I'll always be forever seventeen
I could have had a family
If things had worked out differently
Instead I'll be forever seventeen

Could I have just one more day
A chance to learn from my mistakes

Can someone wake me up?
I haven't lived yet
I'm only seventeen
God, did you forget?
I'm just a baby
And I don't wanna be
Forever seventeen

In a matter of a moment
Life fell before my eyes
And now I'm looking at the meaning of
The miracle of life
Where are we going without even knowing
The answers deep inside

Forever seventeen

So don't give up
You haven't lived yet
You're only seventeen
And God did not forget
You're just a baby
