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 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 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 I'll 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 seventeen 
It's hard to see past Friday night
She wasn't right for you
But still you feel like there's
A knife sticking out of your back
And you wondering 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 8th
 Always stop completely, don't just tap your brakes 
And when you get a date with Bridget 
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 Ms. Brinkman 
She spent so much extra time
It like she sees the diamond underneath
And she's polishing you till you shine 

And oh you got so much going for you
 Going right
But I know at seventeen 
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 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 seventeen 
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
