We lived without regret
And swore we'd make the best of it
Together
Through each other's eyes
We saw the world in a different light, oh, I
I thought it'd last forever
Don't tell me you were always there
Don't tell me this was always fair, whoa

It's not the first time I've been blinded
With my own eyes
Isn't it perfect how you got out
Just in time
To watch me bleed
Watch me reach out desperately
For a hand that wasn't there
So why should I care

Another page is turned
Another lesson learned
Another bridge to break and burn
So run run away from your lies
But know you can never hide
Cause the truth is written in your eyes
Don't tell me you were always there
Don't tell me this was always fair whoa

It's not the first time I've been blinded
With my own eyes
Isn't it perfect how you got out
Just in time
To watch me bleed
Watch me reach out desperately
For a hand that wasn't there
So why should I care
Why should I care

So lie awake in the night
Knowing that I'll be alright
Knowing that I'll still breathe
So feel the silent surround you
And remember the sound
Of seventeen

It's not the first time I've been blinded
With my own eyes
Isn't it perfect how you got out
Just in time
To watch me bleed
Watch me reach out desperately
For a hand that wasn't there
So why should I care
So why should I care
So why should I care
