[Verse I]
   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
           F#m
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
    F#m              
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
                                    F#m
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
     F#m
Seventeen
     D
Seventeen
                                           A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
[Verse II] 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 F#m 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 F#m 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 F#m 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 I’m Seventeen F#m Seventeen D Seventeen A Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen [Bridge] A D I been goin on, I been growin up F#m I’m a know it all, I don’t know enough Bm See I was racing and waiting for the day that I would be old enough A Guess I’ll be patient and pace myself gotta prepare for when goings rough [Chorus] A So hear me scream D I was too young to understand what it means F#m 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 I’m Seventeen F#m Seventeen D Seventeen A Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
