You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors It's the morning of your very first day You say "Hi" to your friends you ain't seen in a while Try and stay out of everybody's way It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here For the next four years in this town Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say "You know, I haven't seen you around before"
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen Feeling like there's nothing to figure out Well count to ten, take it in This is life before you know who you're gonna be Fifteen
You sit in class next to a redheaded Abigail And soon enough you're best friends Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool We'll be out of here as soon as we can And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car And you're feeling like flying And your mamma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one And you're dancing 'round the room when the night ends, when the night ends
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them When you're fifteen and your first kiss makes your head spin around But in your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy of the football team But I didn't know it at fifteen
When all you wanted was to be wanted Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now
Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday But I realized some bigger dreams of mine And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind And we both cried
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall I've found time can heal most anything And you just might find who you're supposed to be I didn't know who I was supposed to be at fifteen
La la la la la La la la la la La la la la la
Your very first day You take a deep breath, girl Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors.
