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


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
'Cause 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
'Cause I'm sober with you and you know it beats drinking alone


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


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


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