You changed my face,
        I think I like it better now.
It doesn't matter anyhow, cuz that's the way it is.
You said hello,
        Well where the hell you been?
I said I feel like I've been off to war, and I may never be the same

I made my bed,
        But now I can't sleep at night.
I'm tossin and turnin you know, you know it ain't right.
I'd love to beg,
        See, but I'm just too proud.
And I don't even know what to say, so I'm thinking out loud.

And when you dream 17,
        I ain't there, so I don't care.
Cuz in all my dreams, I'm 23,
        And she's the girl right next to me.
        See that girl right next to me.

I lie in my bed,
        You're running through my head.
Going over and over and over, the things that you said.
I'm caught in the trap,
        I'll run like hell right back to you.
Cuz it's over with you and you know it means drinking alone.

And when you dream 17,
        I ain't there, so I don't care.
Cuz in all my dreams, I'm 23,
        And she's the girl right next to me.
        See that girl right next to me.
