“Edge of Seventeen” by Stevie Nicks

“The clouds never expect it when it rains. But the sea changes colours. But the sea does not change.”

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

Said to my friend, baby
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

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

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

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’
Said, whoo, baby, whoo
Said, whoo

The clouds never expect it
When it rain, but

But the sea
Does not change

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

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)

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

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)
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you
My love
I’m a few years older than you
(I’m a few years older than you)

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