Letter To Me

In the style of

Brad Paisley

Lyrics

if i could
write a letter
to me
and send it back
in time to myself
at seventeen

first i'd prove
it's me by sayin'
look under
your bed
there's a skoal can
and a playboy
no one else
would know ya hid

and then i'd say
i know it's tough
when you break up
after seven months
and yeah i know
you really liked her
and it
just don't seem fair

but all i can say
is pain like that
is fast
and it's rare

and oh
you got so much
goin' for ya
goin' right
but i know
at seventeen
it's hard to see
past friday night

she wasn't
right for you
and still you
feel like
there's a knife
stickin' outta
your back

and you're
wonderin' if
you'll survive but
you'll make it
through this
and you'll see

you're still around
to write this
letter to me

at the stop sign
at tomlinson
and eighth
always stop
completely
and don't just
tap your brakes

and when you
get a date
with bridgette
make sure
the tank is full

on second thought
forget it
that one turns out
kinda cool

each and every time
you have a fight
just assume
you're wrong
and daddy's right

and you should
really thank
miss brinkman
she spent
so much extra time

it's like she sees
the diamond
underneath
and she's
polishin' you
till you shine

and oh
you got so much
goin' for ya
goin' right
but i know
at seventeen
it's hard to see
past friday night

tonight's
the bonfire rally
but you're
stayin' home instead
because if you
fail algebra
mom and dad'll
kill you dead

but trust me
you'll squeak by
and get a "c"
and you're
still around
to write this
letter to me

well you got
so much
up ahead
you'll make
new friends
and you should see
your kids and wife

and i'd end by sayin'
have no fear
these are
nowhere near
the best
years of your life

i guess i'll see you
in the mirror
when you're
a grown man
p.s. go hug aunt rita
every chance you can

and oh
you got so much
goin' for ya
goin' right
but i know
at seventeen
it's hard to see
past friday night

i wish you'd
study spanish
i wish you'd
take a typin' class

i wish you
wouldn't worry
let it be
hey i'd say
have a little faith
and you'll see

if i could
write a letter
to me
to me
