Lyrics

Back At Seventeen

back at seventeen, wasn?t that when our hair got long?
you and me, two angry men a thousand strong
we took it to the line for some chump-change guarantee
we nearly blew our chances that time, didn?t we?
at least we stand a little taller now?

just a couple crazy mothers at seventeen
with the baddest pair of triggers you ever seen
we was all gettin? high off the signs in the sky
back at seventeen
we was runnin? and fallin? and up again
with crazy ladies who made us their crazy men
will there ever be heroes like you and me
back at seventeen?
will there ever be?

in the summertime of the last year I was home
Katy, you were so lovely and so afraid for me
just a pair of fools hangin? on to their simple dream
you never knew that from the time she played with me
somewhere a little one wears my name

just a couple crazy mothers at seventeen
with the baddest pair of triggers you ever seen
we was all gettin? high off the signs in the sky
back at seventeen
we was runnin? and fallin? and up again
with crazy ladies who made us their crazy men
will there ever be heroes like you and me
back at seventeen?

even now, we still parade ten thousand strong
but I swear we?ll have it all before long?

just a couple crazy mothers at seventeen
with the baddest pair of triggers you ever seen
we was all gettin? high off the signs in the sky
back at seventeen
we was runnin? and fallin? and up again
with crazy ladies who made us their crazy men
will there ever be heroes like you and me
back at seventeen?

will there ever be heroes like you and me
like you and me at seventeen?
