Wild Wild Horses Lyrics

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 outta 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
Gotta get that girl, gotta make her laugh
Gotta shake the past and move forwards
Gotta 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 wanna but he had to learn the words so he could sing along

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 its 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 its dark, sometimes he's the nightlight
But most of the time she doesn't even feel lifelike

She got a man but he thinks hes a star
And it feels like she has to compete with the bar
She keeps up her guard but it seems so hard
Mama 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 passed, is he coming home soon?
Or is he gonna 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 shes not around
After somebody else already locked that down
We sing...

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 its 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

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 comin' back home
No more alone, no more sad poems
No after-bar calls to the cell phone
Its 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 'em he ever allowed to love him
Now watching from the crowd tryin to be proud of him
They say...

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 its 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
