I remember sitting back 'cause you said you had something to say
You told me that you had a secret, yeah yeah
Promised to keep it safe
I kept it for you
And we talked and we laughed and we sat in the car; watched the world go past
I tried to dissuade you but you made up your mind
You were wise at 17
And there was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
I didn't know why you asked me, you're gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
There was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
They said we grown up too fast, that we acted young and foolishly
I keep all this in mind when I recall the time
I have to disagree, and be here for you
Oooh, and we talked and laughed and we sat in the park and watched the world go past
I tried to dissuade you but you know what you're like
You were wise at 17
And there was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
I didn't know why you asked me, you're gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
There was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
Birds in the tree sing a song for me
About being young and foolish and naive
I haven't changed that much from what I see
I was only trying to make things right
And there was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
I didn't know why you asked me, you're gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
There was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
And there was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say
I didn't know why you asked me, you're gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
There was nothing I could do and there was nothing I could say...
