He was a skinny kid who might
As well've had a bullseye on his back
'Cause his hand me down clothes
Were not the kind the rest of us kids had

He ate lunch alone most all the time
So he never had much to say
And in part I felt responsible
'Cause in Johnson's class one day

I chose words I was sure
Would make his face turn red
But that's not what I wish I'd said

Me and my little sister were pretty good buddies
But we teased each other a lot
And I thought it was pretty funny
When she couldn't get a date to the prom

And she came home and said
"What the heck, I'll find somethin' else to do"
And I said, "If you weren't such a pain in the neck
Maybe you'd be goin' to"

She looked up and her eyes were red
And lookin' back now
That's not what I wish I'd said

What I wish I'd said to that kid instead
Is I can always use another friend
And what I wish I'd said

If I had the chance is
"Do you think that your big bother
Could escort you to that dance?"
That's what I wish I'd said

Now here we stand just you and me
And tempers are flarin' high
You look like you're about to leave
But before you say goodbye

What I wish I'd said, is a whole lot less
And just held on to our happiness
Now we'd have a lot fewer problems to solve
If I'd just said nothing, nothing at all

Now that's what I wish I'd said
That's what I wish I'd said
