Oskar Jefsen – 17 Years lyrics

I had the strangest dream last night
I was being chased by the cops
Innocent, I didn’t put up a fight
Just to make the chasing stop
At first I thought “What the hell, this is crazy
I never even bent the law"
They told me in the police car
That I was going away for

Seventeen years
Seventeen years
(Seventeen years)
Seventeen years

Seventeen years is a long long time
It makes you wonder what you’re gonna miss
Friends and family weren’t on my mind
Only thing I thought of was this
This girl I told you about before
Yeah that was when I realised
No one in the world could I ever want more
No longer could I deny

That for all these
Seventeen years
She would be the one that I would miss the most
Yes for all seventeen years
I’d be living like a ghost
For seventeen years
Seventeen years
Yes for seventeen years
She would be the one that I would miss the most
