Edge of Seventeen


[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo-whoo-whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

[Verse 1]
And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby (everything stops)
Nothin’ else mattered
He was no more
(He was no more)
Than a baby then
Well, he seemed broken hearted
Somethin’ within him
But the moment
That I first laid
Eyes on him
All alone on the edge of seventeen

[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Said, whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

[Verse 2]
Well, I went today
Maybe I will go again
Tomorrow, yeah, yeah
Well, the music there
Well it was hauntingly familiar
When I see you doin’
What I try to do for me
With their words of a poet
And a voice from a choir
And a melody
Nothin’ else mattered

[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Said, whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

[Verse 3]
The clouds never expect it
When it rains
But the sea changes colours
But the sea
Does not change
So with the slow graceful flow
Of age
I went forth with an age old
Desire to please
On the edge of seventeen

[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Said, whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

[Verse 4]
Well then suddenly
There was no one left standing
In the hall, yeah, yeah
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
When I went searchin’ for an answer
Up the stairs and down the hall
Not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singin’
(Come away)
(Come away)
(Come away)

[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Said, whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

[Bridge]
Well, I hear you (well, I hear you)
In the morning (in the morning)
And I hear you (and I hear you)
At nightfall (at nightfall)
Sometimes to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you
My love
I’m a few years older than you, my love
(I’m a few years older than you)

[Chorus]
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she’s singin’
Whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo
