Tessa Rae: Seventeen Lyrics:
You got a heart that beats too fast
You get excited and it never lasts
You got a brain fucked from your past
All those drugs that numbed you never seem to last

First you come undone
Then you always crash
We grew up together you’re part of my past
Don’t know what I was looking for
I was looking for in you

Boy when we’re together I just feel at peace
Cruising down the highway going 93
Now we’re at 100 and you’re blowing trees
That’s okay with you if that’s okay with me

Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen

We roamed the city streets all night
Driving in my car ‘till the morning light
Every time you left it didn’t feel alright
I was missing you holding on way too tight
First I came undone then I always crashed
Shoulda known back then that this would never last
Don’t know what I was looking for
I was looking for in you

Boy when we’re together I just feel at peace
Cruising down the highway going 93
Now we’re at 100 and you’re blowing tree
That’s okay with you if that’s okay with me

Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen

Thought we were just having fun
Now I see your face and I wanna run
I can’t be seventeen forever
Promise that I want to
Can’t be seventeen forever
When you see my face it haunts you

Boy when we’re together I just feel at peace
Cruising down the highway going 93
Now we’re at 100 and you’re blowing tree
That’s okay with you if that’s okay with me
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
Feel like I, feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen

When I’m with you feel like I, feel like I’m seventeen
The streets that are so bright
They used to feel so mean
I loved all of your flaws
And you loved me for me
We would turn the lights off
And talk about our dreams

Could get pulled over
Fuck up all our dreams
You and I together
City kids it seems
Looking for some trouble something frivolous.
