Verse 1:
   A
My daddy says that life comes at you fast
 
We all like blades of grass
   D
We come to prime and in time we just wither away
           Gbm
And it all changes
 
My view with a looking glass won’t catch the past
     D                                       E
Only photographs remind us of the passing of days
   A
Oh nothing stays the same from yesteryears
                    D
See I recall being afraid of the dark
 
And holding on to teddy bears
    Gbm
I’d wrap myself in blankets just to cover me from fears
         D
That was then and now I’m here
        E
And the night is mine
 
Chorus:
            A
So hear me scream
                                      D
I was too young to understand what it means
                                    Gbm
I couldn’t wait til I could be seventeen
                                               D
I thought he lied when he said take my time to dream
                                           A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
         D
I’m Seventeen
     Gbm
Seventeen
     D
Seventeen
                                           A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
 
Verse 2:
   A
My mother said don’t forget where you come from, where you’ve been
D
Always keep your closest friends they can't slip away
              Gbm
They keep you grounded
 
Oh keep yourself surrounded with good advice
    D
And yeah I guess that sounded nice when I was ten
       A
Oh but never were there truer words
 
And I’ll my days I’ve ever heard
    D
And when she told me little girl the answer is love
             Gbm
So those are words that I keep with me
 
Though the seasons change so quickly
          D
Keep them buried in my heart
 
And never fought
 
Chorus:
            A
So hear me scream
                                      D
I was too young to understand what it means
                                    Gbm
I couldn’t wait til I could be seventeen
                                               D
I thought he lied when he said take my time to breathe
                                           A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
         D
