Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll still land among the stars.


I'm only seventeen

Seems like just yesterday
I was running
into your arms
thinking that you
were the best in the world

I'm only seventeen

Seem's like just yesterday
I was shaking in the halls
on the first day
at a new school
as the new girl

I'm only seventeen

I see them standing over me
as my head spins
they're saying I'm dead
but I can't be
can I?

I'm only seventeen

All I can remember
is the flying glass
and the deafening scream
was it my own?
I don't know

I'm only seventeen

why me?

I had just recently watched a movie about a girl that died in a car accident because of texting, and it inspired me.
