Dear Seventeen Lyrics

Dear seventeen, you’re turning twenty four on Sunday
You’re readily rejecting aging on this one day
Dear seventeen, you live at home still over half a decade later
Don’t be scared, just be prepared, here’s some advice to savour
Dear seventeen, reality’s you don’t make money
It’s never been enough to make you want to throw in the towel, honey
But after you break onto the scene, you play arenas as an opener
You tour the states with famous mates of yours, go broke, but it’s the job you held out hope for
I’m just stating the facts

Sweet brunette dream, miss seventeen
I could resent you, but I won’t
It don’t take much to say with love
“Screw you, and that good song you wrote”
Up on cloud nine, the weather’s fine I know
Believe me I recall
Dear seventeen, don’t change a thing
When you don’t know a thing at all

Dear seventeen, you’ll date a man twelve years your senior
You’re yet to meet, but in a year’s time though you should steer clear
You’ll think you’re well equipped so he gives you the world then makes it shatter
He’ll wear you out, you’ll slim right down back to the size you were before he said that mattered
Yeah, I’ll leave it at that

‘Cause sweet brunette dream, miss seventeen
I could keep venting, but I won’t
It don’t take much to say with love
“Screw you, and that good song you wrote”
Up on cloud nine, the weather’s fine
Until someone makes you feel small
Dear seventeen, don’t change a thing
He doesn’t know a thing at all

Dear seventeen, we made the album and it did pretty well
And you best believe the writer’s block subsides, there are too many tales to tell
You see the world, you make this last, you share your craft with new creators
Your best friends stick around, your sister’s proud, and have no doubt you’re still obsessed with Taylor
Baby, I’ve got your back

Sweet brunette dream, miss seventeen
I could resent you, but I’ll never
It don’t take much to say with love
“That song was good, but you’ll write better”
Up on cloud nine, the weather’s fine I know
But there is so much more
Dear seventeen, don’t change a thing
When you don’t look before you fall
Dear seventeen, don’t change a thing
When you don’t know a thing at all
