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

Ooh, 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
