Verse 1:

G1                         C2
Summer day 7 years old and I took a ride on my bicycle
G1                                     C2
I can still feel my face against the wind
G1
A backpack full of my favorite toys
C2
Singing songs just to make some noise
G1                            C2
Is a good way for a day to begin

G5
I remember when life was simple way back then

G1     C2

G5                                         F5                   G5
Now I'm trying to see through those eyes again, through those eyes

Chorus:
Fadd9              Gsus4            D7  Am7
If I could turn back time I'd go to 1989
Fadd9              Gsus4               D7        G
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Fadd9                Gsus4    D7           Am7
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Fadd9              D7 
Livin’ like it’s 1989

Verse 2:
G1 (1-2 measures)

 G1                                  C2
Deep inside this Texas heart there’s an innocence underneath the scars
G1                             C2
Waiting to be called outside to play
G1                                C2
Wanna feel like a wide eyed kid, wanna put it all back into perspective
G1                                     C2
God You're great just because You're great

G5
It is so uncomplicated with You here, 

G1         C2
   with You here

G5                                       F5                    G5    
You make the person that I once was reappear, You reverse the years

[Chorus]

Am7            Fadd9               Gsus4         
I'm sorry that I made it something complicated
          D7                  Am7
I am ready now it’s not too late
Am7          Fadd9                   Gsus4
Everyday I'm learning it's all about returning
              D7                       Am7
I'm living my life with child-like faith

Everyday I'm learning it's all about returning
              D7
I'm living my life like I could

Fadd9      Gsus4           D7     Am7
Turn back time and go to 1989
Fadd9          Gsus4               D7        G
Where every day was full of chasin’ dreams
Fadd9              Gsus4    D7                Am7
Yeah I may be grown up but maybe I should try
Fadd9              D7  (Am7 Fadd9 Gsus4 D7 G) or (Gsus4 Fadd9 D7 G)
Livin’ like it’s 1989
Fadd9              D7          Gsus4
I’m livin’ like it’s 1989*
