Submit Corrections Cancel

My daddy left home when I was a kid
Said he had to move on
He took the bottle as his only friend
I didn't know why, I didn't know why

Mama tried to do the best that she could
But she just didn't understand
All the confusion I was feeling inside
I didn't know why, I didn't know why

Feeling so alone
How I wish back then I'd known
When I was seventeen

Na na, na na na na
You were callin'
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin'
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen, seventeen

From study hall to the senior prom
I felt like no one at all
And just a shadow in a crowded room
I didn't know why, I didn't know why

Thought I was to blame
While Your love screamed out my name
When I was seventeen

Na na, na na na na
You were callin'
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin'
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen

Sure, I heard You died for me
I heard about the Cross
But oh, the pain was burning deep
It took so long to hear Your voice

Na na, na na na na
You were callin'
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin'
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen

Na na, na na na na
You were callin' me
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin'
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen

Na na, na na na na
You were callin' me
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin'
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen

I found a photo of my mom and dad
A few tears later I could see
How much You loved that lonely boy I was
Seventeen

Na na, na na na na
Na na, na na na na
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen
