17

I'm not going out tonight
I hope you can forgive me
I'll be by myself tonight
where not anyone can see me
no homework books or reading
not tv, computers or guitar
just me quietly thinking
of the life I've lived so far
17 years I've been around
and look what I have done
nothing that exciting 
I was only having fun
but in these 17 years I guess
I've done somthing pretty cool
I've been a sister and a daughter too
and developed a life with you
so tonight I'm not going to hide
or sit up in my room
tonight I'm going to celebrate 
17 great years with you
