The Beu Sisters – I Was Only (Seventeen) lyrics

I was only tryin to keep the wall from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen
I told you that it didn't mean a thing...

Feels like a million years ago
Small town where everybody knows
Everything about everybody else

Way back when there wasn't you and me
I guess I was still naive
And the moment was as far as I could see

[Chorus:]
I was only tryin to keep the wall from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen
I told you that it didn't mean a thing...

Why can't you just love me?
Please, don't push too hard
The truth you think you're after
Might just break your heart

Someone who I thought was my friend
But sometimes people just pretend
And I will never be the same again

[Chorus:]
I was only tryin to keep the wall from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen
I told you that it didn't mean a thing...

Why can't you just love me?
Please, don't push too hard
The truth you think you're after
Might just break your heart

I'm sure there's things you'd rather keep inside
I won't ask you about all the things you've tried
Don't let yesterday get in the way
Why can't we just start from where we are?

[Chorus:]
I was only tryin to keep the wall from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen
I told you that it didn't mean a thing...

Why can't you just love me?
Please, don't push too hard
The truth you think you're after
Might just break my heart....
