"Seventeen Ain't So Sweet" as written by and Ronnie Winter....
Well she never was the best
Yeah at following the trends
Stayed one step above the rest
And even though it seemed

Like the world was crushing on her
Didn't let it hold her down even hold her back
Oh no

Don't worry you'll show them
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn
There's a scream in your voice
And I hope you will be heard
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn until you're heard
You're heard

Seventeen is just a test
Yeah and I would recommend
That you live with no regrets
And even if it seems

Like the world was crushing on you
You shouldn't let it hold you down
Shouldn't hold you back
Oh no
Oh no

Don't worry you'll show them
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn
There's a scream in your voice
And I hope you will be heard
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn until you're heard
You're heard

Relax girl
Turn down the lights
No one can see you shining
Relax girl
It'll be alright
No one can stop you if you tried

Point of rhythm is the fall await in time
To listen to the beating in your mind
And if you will seek then you shall find
Woah oh

There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn
There's a scream in your voice
And I hope you will be heard
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn until you're heard
You're heard

There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn
There's a scream in your voice
And I hope you will be heard
There's a fire in your eyes
And I hope you'll let it burn until you're heard
You're heard

    General CommentThis song to me is about him believing in a girl, whose seventeen it seems, and he's telling her she should keep doing what she's doing and he'll always believe in her. He's teling her that she should keep going, keep the fire burning, and keep the scream until it's heard.

    General Commentthis song remimds me so much of myself. I graduated from high school when i was seventeen and I had no idea what i wanted to do with my life. I was scared to go to college, so everytime I heard this song, it brought my spirits up. I am now in college.One day at college, this guy told me "I thought I saw fire in your eyes" and he did not say anything else, and I did not want to ask why he said that and it had sounded so beautiful, i was afraid that his explanation would ruin what i had thought of when he said that. I thought this was ironic because I had felt connected to this song before. Anyway, its not like anyone cares but i just thought i'd share my "seventeen ain't so sweet" story

    General Commentto me, this song is about telling a girl that, she may not fit into the stereotypical standards of the world, but that she doesn't need to, and even though it's hard at the moment, she'll make it and prove to everyone that you don't have to meet the world's standards, you don't have to fit, that being different is a great thing and that it will actually just make her stand out all the more when she does finally make it in the world, it's really inspiring, i love it

    General CommentI think this song is about living in a world that has set nothing but low expectations and how she has a lot more going for her. Kinda like there are will be a lot of people in the world that look down on you but don't let their veiws stomp on your dreams. Everyone has potential to do something great in life and it's up to you how your life ends up.

    Great inspirational song
