We were seventeen when I first saw you

I close my eyes

And the flashback starts

I'm sitting there

A cafeteria in rainy air

See the eyes

See the beauty, the white skin

I see you stare at me as I eat

Your eyes were black, little did I know

That you were a vampire, and you could smell me

And then you said, "Stay away from me, Bella."

And I was crying in your Volvo

Begging you please don't go, and I said

Edward, I love you, like you're the only one I know

I'll be waiting, and I know how fast you can run

You'll be the vampire, and I'll be the vampiress

This is my story, be my happy ending

So you climb through my window to see me

We keep quiet 'cause we're in trouble if Charlie knew

So close your eyes

Escape Forks for a little while

Then, at my birthday, there was scarlet blood,

And you said, "Stay away from me, Bella."

But you were everything to me,

I was begging you please don't go

And you said:

Bella, I don't want you to come with me

I don't love you, this relationship just can't be

The Cullens are leaving and you're staying here.

This is your story, I won't interfere.

Jacob, save me, I don't know how to feel

Edward's gone, and only dangerous things feel real

I'm not afraid that you're a werewolf

Can we ride motorcycles, Jacob just say yes

Oh, oh

Alice said you went to Italy,

So we got on a plane to go save you

The sun was coming,

But I crashed into you just in time, we went home and I said

Edward, bite me, I don't want to be alone

I keep waiting, but I know you'll never crack

Can I be undead? I don't know what to think.

He knelt to the floor and pulled out a ring

And said, "Marry me Bella,

I'll make you a vampire

I love you, though I wish you would wait a while

I know what you want, we can just go to Vegas

This is your story, and I'm not going anywhere!

Oh, oh, oh, oh

'Cause we were seventeen when I first saw you
