  • You are young and 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 heartbeat
    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

    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    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

    Oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh Writer/s: ANTHONY IMPROGO, MASON MUSSO, TIMOTHY HEALY, TRACE CYRUS

  • Estel from 303, CoI always thought this song was about a guy who's underage and a girl who's almost 18. Once she turns 18, she can't be with him anymore. So he's saying that they can get away with being together while she's still 17, because he knows she won't be forever. "you won't be seventeen forever and we can get away with this tonight."
