I have learned the golden words
"You watch your step"
That life is made for fools 
And the devil takes the rest
I know my heart is like a fire

 Firing blind, firing wild
Just like a shot in the dark
You'll never see- no stopping me
I'm a shot in the dark
So I live in other days
I take my time

I make my way down streets  Where no one sees the signs 
Can I learn the simple truth
Face the fact

No matter where I am
I can never go back
'Cause I'm a shot in the dark
I shoot out from the black 
I never can go back
 Forever changing tracks 
I'm a shot in the dark
