  • I know what you wanna say
    I think that you're all the same
    Constantly being led astray
    You think you know somethin' you don't

    Downtown hot spots
    Halfway up the street
    I used to be free
    I used to be seventeen
    Follow my shadow
    Around your corner
    I used to be seventeen
    Now you're just like me

    Down beneath the ashes and the stone
    Sure of what I've lived and have known
    I see you so uncomfortably alone
    I wish I could show you how much you've grown

    Downtown hot spots
    I used to be on this street
    I used to be seventeen
    I used to be seventeen
    Now you're half shy
    Hanging on my block
    Sun coming up
    Who is my shadow?

    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la

    I know what you're gonna be
    I know that you're gonna be
    You're crumbling up just to see
    Afraid that you'll be just like me

    Downtown hot spots
    Halfway through this life
    I used to feel free
    Was it just a dream?
    Now you're half shy
    Think you're so carefree
    But you're just seventeen
    So much like me
    You're just seventeen
    You're just seventeen
