Cowboy Junkies – Seventeen Seconds lyrics

Time slips away
And the light begins to fade
And everything is quiet now

Feeling is gone
And the picture disappears
And everything is cold now

The dream had to end
The wish never came true
And the girl, starts to sing

Seventeen seconds
A measure of life
Seventeen seconds
