VERONICA

Fine!
We’re “damaged”
Really “damaged”
But that does not make us “wise”
We’re not “special”, we’re not “different”
We don’t choose who lives or dies
Let’s be normal, see bad movies
Sneak a beer and watch TV
We’ll bake brownies or go bowling
Don’t you want a life with me?
Can’t we be seventeen?
That’s all I want to do
If you could let me in
I could be good with you
People hurt us

J.D.

Or they vanish

VERONICA

And you’re right, that really blows
But we let go—

J.D.

Take a deep breath

VERONICA

Then go buy some summer clothes
We'll go camping—

J.D.

Play some poker

VERONICA

And we’ll eat some chili fries
Maybe prom night

J.D.

Maybe dancing

VERONICA

Don't stop looking in my eyes

J.D.

Your eyes

BOTH

Can't we be seventeen
Is that so hard to do?
If you could let me in
I could be good with you
Let us be seventeen
If we still got the right

VERONICA

So what’s it gonna be?
I wanna be with you

J.D.

I wanna be with you

VERONICA

Wanna be with you

BOTH

Tonight

VERONICA

Yeah we’re damaged

J.D.

Badly damaged

BOTH

But your love’s too good to lose

VERONICA

Hold me tighter

J.D.

Even closer

VERONICA

I’ll stay if I’m what you choose

J.D.

Can we be seventeen?

VERONICA

If I am what you choose

J.D.

If we've still got the right

VERONICA

‘Cause you’re the one I choose

J.D.

You’re the one I choose

BOTH

You’re the one I choose
