12. Wild Wild Horses
He knew he wasn't perfect But he always did his best to try to get under the surface Not a saint, not a serpent He just wanted everyone to be impressed with him as a person So when she came along with the sunbeam Self-esteem stopped making nothing out of somethings Leaving the scene was unseen, I mean It was the first time he ever felt the need to keep the gun clean Do the math, he knew he had to choose a path Got to get that girl, got to make her laugh Got to shake the past and move forwards Got to make this last, it feels gorgeous But she had a lover in the mid-west Never figured out how to get him off her thick chest Just like that, everything is gone He didn't want to but he had to learn the words so he could sing along [Chorus] Everything is all I have to give you And I'm afraid it ain't enough And you're not so young that you believe me Just because I say it's love And even if they come to steal you tomorrow I'll know my smile was yours Go ahead and chase your dreams and your freedom Run, run wild wild horses You can't tame these horses You can't tame these horses, no You can't tame these horses You can't tame these horses Sometimes it can be so nice, right? Sometimes she feel herself turn into the wife type And when it's dark, sometimes sees the nightlife But most of the time she doesn't even feel lifelike She got a man but he thinks he's a star And it feels like she has to compete with the bar She keeps up her guard but it seems so hard Momma never told her she would see those scars Every night he's out doing who knows whom While she cries along like a new show tune Last call past, is he coming home soon? Or is he going to run away with the dish and the spoon? She'll realize she don't want that clown Leave those shoes at the lost and found He won't catch on until she's not around After somebody else already locked that down (We sing) [Chorus] He didn't want her to see him leave And he couldn't keep sitting there watching her sleep Cause he knows if he hangs out for a few hours He'll dig another hole, trying to plant some new flowers But the sun don't shine under the table He's trying to hold his life together with staples No investment cause he's incapable And he's on the outro of being labeled available The word on the street is his girl's coming back home No more alone, no more sad poems No after-bar calls to the cell phone It's time to walk a new path and grow a backbone Shoved into the big book of just friends Wondering how he would look as a husband And everyone of them he ever allowed to love him Now watching from the crowd trying to be proud of him (They say) [Chorus]
