Stevie Nicks — Edge Of Seventeen lyrics

Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song ...
Sounds like she's singing...
Whoo...whoo...whoo
Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo...baby...ooo...said ooo


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...
Nothin' else mattered


He was no more...than a baby then
Well he... seemed broken hearted...
Something 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 singing...
Whoo...whoo...whoo
Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo...baby...ooo...said ooo


I went today...maybe I will go again...
Tomorrow
And the music there it was hauntingly...
Familiar
And I see you doing...
What I try to do for me
With the words from a poet...
And the voice from a choir
And a melody...nothing else mattered


Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song ...
Sounds like she's singing...
Whoo...whoo...whoo
Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo...baby...ooo...said ooo

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/stevie-nicks-edge-of-seventeen-lyrics.html ]
The clouds...never expect it...
When it rains
But the sea changes colours...
But the sea...
Does not change
And so...with the slow...graceful flow..
Of age
I went forth...with an age old...
Desire...to please
On the edge of...seventeen


Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song ...
Sounds like she's singing...
Whoo...whoo...whoo
Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo...baby...ooo...said ooo


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
Oh 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...singing...
Come away...come away...


Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song ...
Sounds like she's singing...
Whoo...whoo...whoo
Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo...baby...ooo...said ooo


Well I hear you in the morning...
And I hear you...
At nightfall...
Sometime to be near you...
Is to be unable...to hear you...
My love...
I'm a few years older than you...
Are (I'm a few years older than you) my love


Just like the white winged dove...
Sings a song...
Sounds like she's singing...
Ooo baby...ooo...said ...(repeat)
