You take a deep breath
And you walk through the doors
It's the mornin of your very first day
You say hi to your friends
you ain't seen in a while
And try to stay out of everybody's way
It's your freshman year
And you're gonna be here for the next
4 years In this town
Hopin' one of those Senior boys
Will wink at you and say
'I haven't seen you around before'
Cuz when you're fifteen,
somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen
Feelin' like there's nothin to figure out
Count to ten Take it in
This is life before you know who you're gonna be
Fifteen
You sit in class next to red-head Abigail
And soon enough you're best friends
Laughi'n at the other girls
Who they 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 feelin like flyin
And you're momma's waitin up
And you're thinkin he's the one
And you're dancin around the room when the night ends
When the night ends
Cuz when you're fifteen, somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen
And your first kiss makes your head spin around
But in your life you'll do things Greater than datin the boy on 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 in life
And Abigail gave everything she had
To a boy who changed his mind
And we both cried
Cuz when you're fifteen, 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 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 la la la la la...
You're very first day Take a deep breath girl
And take a deep breath as you walk through the doors


Driving in my car today to and from school I had this song blaring on my car stereo singing along.

It is interesting to be on the other side of the desk now as the teacher--I was in high school just a short 41/2 years ago. I see myself in those girls--awkward, scared, falling in love....

Today and lately I have been feeling like that fifteen year old girl who I thought I left behind. I have been taking lots of deep breaths and walking into something new. The tears fall too much like they did back then, my head is spinning with too many emotions.

But I made it through that fifteen and I know I can make it through this one. It's just hard trying to figure out who you are going to be....
