~sixteen...~







You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It's the morning of your very first day
And you say hi to your friends
you ain't seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody's way
It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say "You know, I haven't seen you around before"

'Cause when you're sixteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're sixteen feeling like there's nothing to figure out
Well,
count to ten, take it in This is life before you know who you're gonna be
sixteen

You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you're best friends
Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool
We'll be outta here as soon as we can
And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car
And you're feeling like flying
And you're momma's waiting up
and you're thinking he's the one
And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends

'Cause when you're sixteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
When you're sixteen and your first date makes your head spin 'round
But in your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn't know it at sixteen

When all you wanted
was to be wanted
Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now .......

Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mine

'Cause when you're sixteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're sixteen, don't forget to look before you fall
I've found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you're supposed to be
I didn't know who I was supposed to be
sixteen

Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl

Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors
