If I were a million miles in the air
Would you try and reach me?
Would you even care?
What if I were right behind, would you turn to see?
Would you come to realize: I'm only seventeen

Back when I would shut my eyes just to hear you breathe,
I was only half alive and you were in between.

Did you see the skyline monuments and b______ ?
They could not compare to what you were before.
Back when I would bide my time, closed but indiscreet.
I would rather be resigned to speak and risk defeat.
Now that I adjust my eyes as you turn to leave,
I have come to realize that I was seventeen.
Only seventeen.
