Jackson, Alan - After 17 Lyrics




Her right hand closed the front porch door
Suddenly a child no more
All the ribbons all the bows in a box now on her closet floor
Anxious for whats to come
Afraid to leave a place she loves

Shes not a woman not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover make a friend
Try and figure out what this life really means
After 17

Broken hearts and rusted dreams
Sometimes make it hard to leave and
Certainty is out of reach even with some self belief
So she bites her lip and shows a smile
Flips her hair and flaunts her style

Shes not a woman not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover make a friend
Try and figure out what this life really means
After 17

Her memories she stowed away
Pulls them out on rainy days
And brand new faces take their place beside the ones that never fade
Shes strong and fragile, weak and smart
Whatever the cost she plays the part

Shes not a woman not a girl
Trying to find her place in this crazy world
Meet a lover make a friend
Try and figure out what this life really means
After 17

Her right hand closed the front porch door
And suddenly a child no more.

    I know that you wrote this about Mattie and I think that its great that you are strong and humble enough to share what a father feels when his daughter leaves out into the world. That's that part this fan responds too your not afraid to show your feelings to the world, you sing from your heart thats "Alan Jackson" and thats what so few new artist have, that capability to be honest from the heart in their music.

    Really liked this song. I think just about all of his songs really do come from his heart. I know that I have always loved his music and probably will until the day I die. I think more highly of Alan Jackson than any other entertainer out there. Great guy who. God has blessed with a beautiful voice that we are all lucky enough that he is willing to share it with us.
