Summer day 7 years old and I took a ride on my bicycle
G1                                     G2
I can still feel my face against the wind
G1
A backpack full of my favorite toys
G2
Singing songs just to make some noise
G1                            G2
Is a good way for a day to begin

Now I'm trying to see through those eyes again, through those eyes

Chorus:
Cadd9              Dsus4            A7  Em7
If I could turn back time I'd go to 1989
Cadd9              Dsus4               A7        D
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Cadd9                Dsus4    A7           Em7
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try

Livin’ like it’s 1989

Verse 2:
G1 (1-2 measures)

 G1                                  G2
Deep inside this Texas heart there’s an innocence underneath the scars
G1                             G2
Waiting to be called outside to play
G1                                G2
Wanna feel like a wide eyed kid, wanna put it all back into perspective
G1                                     G2
God You're great just because You're great

A5
It is so uncomplicated with You here, 

G1         G2
   with You here

A5                                       C5                    D5    
You make the person that I once was reappear, You reverse the years

Em7            Cadd9               Dsus4         
I'm sorry that I made it something complicated
          A7                  Em7
I am ready now it’s not too late
Em7          Cadd9                   Dsus4
Everyday I'm learning it's all about returning
              A7                       Em7
I'm living my life with child-like faith

I'm living my life like I could

Cadd9      Dsus4           A7     Em7
Turn back time and go to 1989
Cadd9          Dsus4               A7        D
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Cadd9              Dsus4    A7                Em7
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Cadd9              A7  (Em7 Cadd9 Dsus4 A7 D) or (Dsus4 Cadd9 A7 D)
Livin’ like it’s 1989
Cadd9              A7          Dsus4
I’m livin’ like it’s 1989*
