38. Letter To Me-Brad Paisley

If I could write a letter to me
 And send it back in time to myself at 17
 First I'd prove it's me by saying look under your bed
 There's a Skoal can and a Playboy no one else would know you hid
 And then I'd say I know its tough
 When you break up after seven months
 And yeah I know you really liked her and it just don't seem fair
 All I can say is pain like that is fast and it's rare

[Chorus]
 And oh you got so much going for you going right
 But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
 She wasn't right for you
 And still you feel like there's a knife sticking out of your back
 And you're wondering if you'll survive
 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 don't just tap your brakes
 And when you get a date with Bridgett 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 is right
 And you should really thank Mrs. Bringman
 She spend so much extra time
 It's like she sees the diamond underneath
 And she's polishing you 'til you shine

[Chorus]
 And oh you got so much going for you going right
 But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
 Tonight's the bonfire rally
 But you're staying home instead because if you fail Algebra
 Mom and dad will kill you dead
 Trust me you'll squeak by and get a C
 And you're still around to write this letter to me

 You've got so much up ahead
 You'll make new friends
 You should see your kids and wife
 And I'd end up saying 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"

[Chorus]
 And oh you got so much going for you going right
 But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
 I wish you'd study Spanish
 I wish you'd take a typing class
 I wish you wouldn't worry, let it be
 I'd say have a little faith and you'll see

 If I could write a letter to me
 To me
