welcome to the future lyrics – brad paisley

“welcome to the future”

when i was ten years old,
i remember thinkin’ how cool it would be,
when we were goin’ on an eight hour drive,
if i could just watch t.v.

and i’d have given anything
to have my own pacman game at home.
i used to have to get a ride down to the arcade;
now i’ve got it on my phone.

glory glory hallelujah.
welcome to the future.

my grandpa was in world war ii,
he fought against the japanese.
he wrote a hundred letters to my grandma;
mailed em from his base in the philippines.

i wish they could see this now,
where they say this change can go.
cause i was on a video chat this morning
with a company in tokyo.

everyday is a revolution.
welcome to the future.

look around it’s all so clear.
wherever we would go and well we…
so many things i never thought i’d see…
happening right in front of me.

i had a friend in school,
running-back on a football team,
they burned a cross in his front yard
for asking out the home-coming queen.

i thought about him today,
everybody who’s seen what he’s seen,
from a woman on a bus
to a man with a dream.

wake up martin luther.
welcome to the future.
glory glory hallelujah.
welcome to the future.
