Verse 1:
Summer day, seven years old
And I took a ride on my bicycle
I can still feel my face against the wind
A backpack full of my favorite toys
Singing songs just to make some noise
Is a good way for a day to begin
I remember when life was simple way back then
Now I'm trying to see through those eyes again (through those eyes)
Chorus:
If I could turn back time
I'd go to 1989
Where everyday was full of chasing dreams
Yeah, I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Living like it's 1989
Verse 2:
Deep inside this Texas heart
There's an innocence underneath the scars

Waiting to be called outside to play
Wanna feel like a wide-eyed kid,
Wanna put it all back into perspective
God You're great just because You're great
It is so uncomplicated with You here (with You here)
You make the person that I once was reappear
You reverse the years
Chorus
Bridge:
I'm sorry that I made it something complicated
I am ready now, it's not too late
Everyday I'm learning it's all about returning
I'm living me life with child-like faith
I'm sorry that I made it something complicated
I am ready now, it's not too late
Everyday I'm learning it's all about returning
I'm living my life like I could...
Turn back time and go to 1989
