I Was Only (Seventeen) (The Beu Sisters)

I was only trying to keep the walls 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 I was only trying to keep the walls 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 would never be the same again I was only trying to keep the walls 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 are things you would 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 I was only trying to keep the walls 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
