Just another pure heart 
A wide open mind
Driftin' like a cork on a sea of dreams 
Playin' the school boy
Makin' believe 
Dyin' to fill the shoes 
The really big shoes for the TV screams  Standing on the sidelines when I was a kid
Talkin' 'bout the heroes and the war
 Living on the front lines wasn't quite the same
 Something deep inside of me had changed  Dedicated upstart entourage 
In the garage 
Four crazy juveniles
Burnin' up the midnight miles
The gigs
The juke box guinea pigs
 Spending our prime 
Hey man
Honky-tonk women just one more time
 Standing on the sidelines when I was a kid
Talkin' 'bout the heroes and the war
 Living on the front lines wasn't quite the same
But something deep inside of me remained 
Took a ride on the wild wind
And lost myself an old friend 
Don't ask me now if I'd do it again
