Darlin', don't you shed one tear for me, if I want to be the hero I was meant to be And if I'm treadin' in deep water or gettin' blinded by the sun, could be that I'm dancin' to the rhythm of a different drum, I might stand out in the open 'neath the thunder and rain or buy a one way ticket on a runaway train, try hangin' by my fingers off a mountain side, take a wicked little tumble down a slip and slide
It's gonna be a wild ride tonight, it's gonna be a wild ride tonight, it's gonna be a wild ride tonight.
Darlin', it's fine if you pray for me, but I'll be seein' all the places that I've wanted to see I might be playin' all the numbers, and rollin' out the dice, just night do a little two-step 'cross some pretty thin ice, 'cos I got my own demons, and some fears to face And it's time I got acquainted with my measure of faith, admit to a few things I've always denied Taste some dangerous dishes that I've never tried
It's gonna be a wild ride tonight, it's gonna be a wild ride tonight, it's gonna be a wild ride tonight
Darlin', it's a wonder you can still love me, even when I'm adding to your misery but it's time for a good game like that Russian Roulette, a high wire act without a safety net, I might pick me a fight down there in Mexico, put my foot in my mouth while diggin' my own hole Order humble pie and then swallow my pride, don't need to be afraid if the Lord's my guide
