Letter to Me - Brad Paisley Lyrics

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 hide
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
All I can say is pain like that is fast and it's rare

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 breaks
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 dad is right
And you should really thank Mrs. Brinkman
She spent so much extra time
It's like she sees the diamond underneath
And she's just polishin' you 'til you shine

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 by 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

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

    My personal favourite song from my favourite artist. Everything he says in this song is true to life and the ending lyrics about waiting to see your kids and wife makes me smile everytime I hear it. Brad has helped me maintain a positive outlook on life and his name should go in the record books as one of the top country singers of all time.

    I love this video and even more one of my good friends is in the video (Cassie) she went to school with him from kindergarden until her senior year. I like this video because it was filmed at Brad's high school and the people in the video went to school with him. It just looks so much like home (West Virginia and Ohio valley).

    I like Brad Paisley. And this video was actually shot at my highschool. So that is really neat. I'm not in it, but the only thing exciting about my town is that Brad Paisley went to John Marshall Highschool and lived in Glen Dale. But I love this video because I know everyone that's in it. So if you haven't seen it, I'd recommend it. It's really good.
  • Great!!!

    This is an amazingly well written song with an acceptable video. Young people can truly gain a different perspective of their current lives by earnestly listening to the message in the lyrics.
  • Great song

    this song is great. Brad is one of my favorite country song writers and there is no need for the explict lyrics. There is no cussing or nothing. He just needs to keep doing what he's doing.;)
