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's 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
