Alessia Cara - Seventeen: chords

   A
My daddy says that life comes at you fast
We all like blades of grass
    D
We come to prime and in time we just wither away
           F#m
And it all changes
My view with a looking glass won’t catch the past
       D
Only photographs remind us of the passing of days
    A
Oh nothing stays the same from yesteryears
                     D
See I recall being afraid of the dark
And holding on to teddy bears
     F#m
I’d wrap myself in blankets just to cover me from fears
           D
That was then and now I’m here
And the night is mine

Chorus:
              A
So hear me scream
                                       D
I was too young to understand what it means
                                    F#m
I couldn’t wait til I could be seventeen
                                                 D
I thought he lied when he said take my time to dream
                                            A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
         D
I’m Seventeen
     F#m
Seventeen
      D
Seventeen
                                            A
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen

My mother said don’t forget where you come from, where you’ve been
Always keep your closest friends they can't slip away
They keep you grounded
Oh keep yourself surrounded with good advice
And yeah I guess that sounded nice when I was ten
Oh but never were there truer words
In all my days I’ve ever heard
And when she told me little girl the answer is love
So those are words that I keep with me
Though the seasons change so quickly
Keep them buried in my heart
And never fought

Chorus:
So hear me scream
I was too young to understand what it means
I couldn’t wait til I could be seventeen
I thought she lied when she said take my time and breathe
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
I’m Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen

A                             D
I been goin on, I been growin up
                                 F#m
I’m a know it all, I don’t know enough
                                                              Bm
See I was racing and waiting for the day that I would be old enough
                                                                     A
Guess I’ll be patient and pace myself gotta prepare for when goings rough

Chorus:
I was too young to understand what it means
I couldn’t wait til I could be seventeen
I thought she lied when she said "take your time to breathe"
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
I’m Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Oh ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Seventeen
Now I wish I could freeze the time at seventeen
