Never thought it would be me
Living in a shattered dream
How could this be the end for me?
What I wouldn't give to have

A life to live
A day to plan
Instead I'll be Forever 17
Could've lived out every dream
Could've been most anything

[Chorus]
Can someone wake me up?
I haven't lived yet, I'm only 17.
God did you forget
I'm just a baby and I don't want to be
Forever 17

I'll never have a bed to make
A test to take
A summer day
I'll always be Forever 17

Could've had a family
If things had worked differently
Instead I'll be Forever 17
Could I have just one more day?
A chance to learn from my mistakes?

[Chorus]

In a matter of a moment
Life fell before my eyes
Now I'm looking at the meaning of the miracle of life
Where were we going without even knowing the answer deep inside?

Forever 17

So don't give up
You haven't lived yet
You're only 17

And God did not forget
You're just a baby...
