Qui di seguito puoi leggere il testo della canzone I Was Only Seventeen di Mariah Carey .

~I was only trying to keep the walls from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen, I told you that it didn't mean a thing

Feels like a million years ago.
Small town where everybody knows everything about everybody else.
Way back when there wasn't you and me,
I guess I was still naive and the moment was as far as I could see

~I was only trying to keep the walls from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen, I told you that it didn't mean a thing.
Why can't you just love me please don't push too hard.
The truth you think you're after might just break your heart.

Someone who I thought was my friend but sometimes people just pretend,
and I would never be the same again.

~I was only trying to keep the walls from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen, I told you that it didn't mean a thing.
Why can't you just love me please don't push too hard.
The truth you think you're after might just break your heart.

I'm sure there's things you'd rather keep inside,
i won't ask you 'bout all the things you've tried
Don't let yesterday get in the way why can't we just start from where we are

~I was only trying to keep the walls from closing in
I was only waiting 'round for something to begin
I was only seventeen, I told you that it didn't mean a thing.
Why can't you just love me please don't push too hard.
The truth you think you're after might just break my heart.
