You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It's the of your very first day
And you say hi to your friends you ain't seen in a while
Try and out of everybody's way

It's your 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 before".

'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna 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
.

You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you're best
Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool
We'll be outta here as soon as we can.

And then you're on your very first date and he's got a
And you're feeling like flying
And you're momma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one
And you're 'round your 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
Makes your head spin 'round

But in your life you'll do things greater than
Dating the boy on the 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 him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his 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 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 I was supposed to be at fifteen

Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors
