Loud and Seventeen

 

Verse One

I miss the days I didn’t search for greys in the mirror

I miss the way the world lay at my feet

 

Bridge One

I could’ve been anything I wanted to be

Lord, let me be

Loud and seventeen

 

Chorus (Part One)

I didn’t fit in with the crowd

I didn’t quite know who I am

But I want to be loud and seventeen

 

Verse Two

A couple years from thirty, I thought I’d own a house

If there wasn’t a deposit, thought I’d figure it out

 

Bridge Two

I didn’t know the heartbreak that lives with me now

Lord, let me be

Loud and seventeen

 

Chorus (Part One)

I didn’t fit in with the crowd

I didn’t quite know who I am

But I want to be loud and seventeen

I want to be loud and seventeen

 

Chorus (Part Two)

Back then I could only step out

When somebody said I’m allowed

I didn’t know freedom like I do now

So why does it feel like I’m missing out?

 

Climax

I want to be young like the spring

Not fading like the leaves

I want to grow on branches

I’m falling from the trees

 

Chorus (Part One)

I didn’t fit in with the crowd

I didn’t quite know who I am

But I want to be loud and seventeen

I want to be loud and seventeen

 

Chorus (Part Two)

Back then I could only step out

When somebody said I’m allowed

I didn’t know freedom like I do now

Why does it feel like I’m missing out? 

 

Ending

Lord, let me be

Loud and seventeen
