Oh seventeen
The wasted songs to me
The summer love I'd leave
And turn away

Oh darkest light
You crept into my mind
I've been leaving that town behind
Ever since

Oh seventeen
The bathroom sink beneath
I've been learning how to sing
Ever since

Oh light of love
Holy fire once enough
Bright awake in the morning sun
A fire I knew

A love where I will end

    I'm not entirely sure what it means on a line-by-line basis, but in general, it seems to be an expanding of the definition of love and a revelation of a holy light of love that makes other loves seem dim by comparison (the "darkest light" of the summer love left behind). Much deeper than a song called "Seventeen" has any right to be.
