Letter to Me ~ Brad Paisley

Kwoneshe2 showed me the music video to this song, I know next to nothing about country music so I am being educated.  My ears like what they hear!

This song is beautiful!

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

1st 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 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 polishing you ‘til you shine

2nd 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 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

3rd 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

  1. You can’t have Brad, he’s mine! Why did Kwoneshe2 have to show you these? Don’t even think of me sharing Toby or Garth. I won’t have it!

  2. Well now Garth just left, we had a wonderful chat and he says that Maddie is the rudest thing ever but cute. Toby is about to arrive for a glass or two of wine and Tim well I can’t say here…

    *grins* dangit I had to google these boys! Look what you made me go and do!

  3. Ok this is SO going to be a country weekend THAT has to be tomorrows song!!! HOLY CRAPOLA did you SEE the …. on him???

    *goes off to find more videos* <– to listen to of course sheesh

  4. LMAO. Yeah, Tim has that effect on me. Look for his Let’s Make Love video. That is his real life wife, Faith Hill, and one of the most sensual, romantic songs ever. They are happily married, have 3 daughters.

  5. Let’s Make Love is one of my favorites. Actually Tim called me and wanted me on that one but I had other plans. To bad Faith just had to fill in for me on it.

    He is so gorgeous…..the hat has to stay on though…

  6. … along with his socks??? Let me guess the shoes are neatly placed under the bed right? lol well they can be put any day under mine for sure!

    i believe you missed it because you were busy doing that recording of “Because of you” to the sound of water…. remember!
