Lyrics

SEVENTEEN
Mitch Collins -- Bob DeYoung – Amy Carlock

I remember and fishing in Lookout Creek
In the summer shade of a big oak tree
Dreaming ‘bout the money I’d make
Buy a Jag XJ and a house on the lake

Twenty years later got a big leather chair
Too many worries and triple the cares
This corner office on the penthouse floor
In my dreams, it was so much more

I’d trade this high rise for a shady tree
I’d swap this Armani suit for my old fishing hat and jeans
Man, I wish I had a time machine
It’s funny how all I need is what I had at seventeen -- at seventeen

Back in those days I had the sweetest girl
My high school crush, center of my world
Then I started chasing dollar signs
Don’t remember even saying goodbye

Man, I wish, I could just go back
Tell myself, boy you don’t know jack
All the money in all the banks
Won’t buy me happy or make things change

I’d trade this high rise for a shady tree
I’d swap this Armani suit for my old fishing hat and jeans
Man, I wish I had a time machine
It’s funny how all I need is what I had at seventeen -- at seventeen
Thinking about what could have been, ain’t gonna take me back
But every now and then I swear one day

I’d trade this high rise for a shady tree
I’d swap this Armani suit for my old fishing hat and jeans
Man, I wish I had a time machine
It’s funny how all I need is what I had at seventeen
All I need is what I had, what I had at seventeen
