I can hear you right now singing' Behind Blue Eyes
I used to play with your hair whenever you'd cry
I can still see the words that were written on your closet walls
Used to recite 'em like multiplication tables in study hall
You were barely 12 when I was still in elementary
I wish you could only see how much you really grew on me
You were only 12 and now I'm turning 17
I wish I coulda been saved back when I was in elementary
I can hear her now laughin', telling me to close my eyes
I learned how to play the guitar around the time I tried to die
I wish we kept the tapes, all I have is your 'Pumpkins CD
She said we were both the first of all her 9 to learn to read
You were just about 12 when I was in elementary
I wish you could only see how alike we are -- you and me
You were barely 12 and now you're turning 23
I wish I coulda been saved back when I was in elementary
I wish I coulda been saved back when I was in elementary
I wish I coulda been saved
