They were in a funeral, watching as people cried and listening to the priest talking in language none of them understood. Tony, Abby, Ziva, McGee, Gibbs, Jenny and Ducky were there standing near the hole, where their friend's body was going to go. They found out that her real name was Annie Schultz, and she is from Estonia. They found that she was a smart kid and that she was loved here. They found a side they never knew about her.

Never thought it would be me
Living in a shattered dream
How could this be in for me?
What I wouldn't give to have
A life to live, a day to plan
Instead I'll be forever seventeen

I am watching the ceremony from far. I can't believe this is happening. I am only seventeen and yet they were here to remember me for the last time and then put my body into the soil, where it will stay forever. I could have had a life to live, a man to love and time to make plans for myself. Instead I am forever seventeen.

Could have lived out every dream
I could have been most anything

I could have been anything. I could have flied in the sky. I could have been a surgeon or lawyer or politician... But now I am nothing at all.

Can someone wake me up?
I haven't lived yet
I'm only seventeen
God, did you forget?
I'm just a baby
And I don't wanna be
Forever seventeen

Please someone snap me. I am only seventeen. I haven't seen life yet. I haven't done all the things I wanted to do. I haven't given myself to the man I love yet. I haven't told him I love him yet. If there is a God, then he's not seeing me. I am just a kid. And I don't wanna stay like this forever. I wanna live my life.

I'll never have a bed to make
A test to take, a summer day
I'll always be forever seventeen
I could have had a family
If things had worked out differently
Instead I'll be forever seventeen

At this moment I just want to make my bed. I wanna have to make the bed. I wanna feel the snowflakes fall down on me, I wanna feel the summer breeze, I wanna go to history lesson and take a test with Tank. I wanna get married and have a baby. I wanna have many babies. I don't wanna be forever seventeen. I wanna get different things. And everything could have been different, anything could be better.

Could I have just one more day
A chance to learn from my mistakes

I wanna have just one more day on the Earth. I wanna make up my mistakes. I wanna tell Daavi I love him. I wanna tell Gibbs I don't hate him. I wanna tell Jenny to go for it with Gibbs. I wanna tell Tony that he is sweet and kind and dreamy man. I wanna tell McGee that I did everything for fun, that I really like him. I wanna tell Abby to trust her heart and do what she wants. I wanna tell Ducky that his stories are fascinating. I wanna apologize to the teachers I have insulted and to the people I have mocked. I wanna make it right.

Can someone wake me up?
I haven't lived yet
I'm only seventeen
God, did you forget?
I'm just a baby
And I don't wanna be
Forever seventeen

Please, this is getting too far. Kids are not supposed to die. I am only seventeen and my body is six feet under. I am not ready to die yet. If anyone can hear me, then slap my head, pinch me, throw me into cold water... do whatever to make me wake up from this nightmare.

In a matter of a moment
Life fell before my eyes
And now I'm looking at the meaning of
The miracle of life
Where are we going without even knowing
The answers deep inside

And now I know the real meaning of life. The magic. I know the miracle to be alive and do things. I can see it all so clear now. And how could I have lived 17 years without really knowing. But now I know and I am ready to go back to my life.

Forever seventeen

But I won't get back there. I am buried in the ground of my home. I am dead. Killed by a single shot. I am no longer here to do anything.

So don't give up
You haven't lived yet
You're only seventeen
And God did not forget
You're just a baby

A woman takes my hand. I know her. She is Caitlin Todd. She tells me not to give up. That God is up here and he hadn't forgotten me, because I am only seventeen, I am just a baby trying to grow up. And I let her take me away. I let her pull me to the heaven. I let her pull me into eternity and leave everything behind. I do it only because I trust Kate and I know I have to.
