Chris Young - What I Wish I'd said

rate me

He was a skinny kid who might as well've had a bullseye on his back,

'cause his hand me down clothes were not the kind the rest of us kids had

He ate lunch alone most all the time so he never had much to say

and in part I felt responsible, cuz in Johnson's class one day,

I chose words I was sure would make his face turn red,

But that's not What I Wish I'd Said

Me and my little sister were pretty good buddies

but we teased each other alot

and I thought it was pretty funny, when she couldn't get a date to the prom

and she came home and said "what the heck, I'll find somethin' else to do"

and I said "If you weren't such a pain in the neck, maybe you'd be goin' to"

She looked up and her eyes were red

and lookin' back now that's not what I Wish I'd said

What I Wish I'd said to that kid instead, is I can always use another friend

and What I Wish I'd said, if I had the chance,

Is "Do you think that your big bother could escort you to that dance?"

Thats What I Wish I'd said

Now here we stand just you and me, and tempers are flarin' high

You look like you're about to leave, But before you say goodbye,

What I Wish I'd said is a whole lot less, and just held on to our happiness

Now we'd have a lot fewer problems to solve, if I'd just said nothing, nothing at all

Now that's What I Wish I'd said, That's What I Wish I'd said
