"Edge of Seventeen" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing,
Who, who, who
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Oh baby oh said oh

And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby
Nothin' else mattered

He was no more, than a baby then
Well he, seemed broken hearted
Something within him
But the moment, that I first laid,
Eyes, on, him, all alone,
On the edge of, seventeen

[Chorus]

I went today, maybe I will go again,
Tomorrow
And the music there it was hauntingly,
Familiar
And I see you doing,
What I try to do for me
With the words from a poet,
And the voice from a choir
And a melody, nothing else mattered

[Chorus]

The clouds, never expect it,
When it rains
But the sea changes colors,
But the sea,
Does not change
And so, with the slow...graceful flow..
Of age
I went forth, with an age old,
Desire, to please
On the edge of, seventeen

[Chorus]

Well then suddenly
There was no one, left standing
In the hall, yeah, yeah,
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
Oh I went searchin' for an answer,
Up the stairs, and down the hall
Not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird, singing
Come away, come away

[Chorus]

Well I hear you in the morning
And I hear you
At nightfall
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable, to hear you
My love
I'm a few years older than you
Are (I'm a few years older than you) my love

Just like the white winged dove,
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Oh baby, oh, said [Repeats]
