Let's be honest, you're not flawless
But you're as close as anything I've seen
You're not the woman that you envisioned
But your life is not a broken time machine
No, it's not that bad
No, it's really not that bad

A little midnight chardonnay
Smooth the edges off the day
A little taste of Mary Jane
Makes you feel young again
All those years around your eyes
Always take you by surprise
You've been living in a dream
Forever 17

A reckless lover, a father figure
You search for both in every man you meet
You're not a mother but sometimes you wonder
If a son or daughter just might make you feel complete
But no, you don't need someone else
No, it's hard enough to learn to love yourself

A little midnight chardonnay
Smooth the edges off the day
A little taste of Mary Jane
Makes you feel young again
All those years around your eyes
Always take you by surprise
You've been living in a dream
Forever 17

Little midnight chardonnay
Smooth the edges off the day
A little taste of Mary Jane
Makes you feel young again
All those years around your eyes
Always take you by surprise
You've been living in a dream
Forever, forever 17
