My daddy left home when I was a kid
Said he had to move on
Took the bottle as his only friend
I didn't know why - I didn't know why

Mama tried to do the best that she could
But she just didn't understand
All the confusion I was feeling inside
And I didn't know why - I didn't know why

Feeling so alone
How I wish back then I'd known...
When I was seventeen...

Na na na na na na - You were callin'
Na na na na na na - While I was fallin'
Na na na na na na - When I was seventeen (seventeen)

From study hall to the senior prom
I felt like no one at all
Just a shadow in a crowded room
I didn't know why - I didn't know why

Thought I was to blame
While Your Love screamed out my name

Repeat Chorus

Sure, I heard You died for me
I heard about the cross
But oh the pain was burning deep
It took so long to hear Your voice

I found a photo of my mom and dad
A few tears later I could see
How much you loved that lonely boy I was
