SONG FOR PETE

Well you never learned to take things in stride

You lived your life with your fist against the sky

Always reachin’ a little too far

Always wishin’ on that same wrong star

In the eye of the storm, never findin’ shelter

You smoked and you drank, but nothin’ really helped

Now the autumn’s comin’, your days are gettin’ shorter

And your restless heart still gets so bored...

 

You’re still glory bound

And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

When the wind knocked your cradle down

The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

And these days you get so tired

But they never could put out your fire

 

She understands, she makes it better

She heals your wounds the times that you let her

But there’s one door you don’t let her in

It’s where you keep that mustang, still unbroken

Sometimes you wonder if you're just an old fool

There’s always one thing, there’s always something left to prove

Just out of reach, around the next bend

But the fire still burns, and you’ll never surrender

 

You’re still glory bound

And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

When the wind knocked your cradle down

The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

And these days you get so tired

But they never could put out your fire

 

Still you keep on runnin’

You keep on runnin’

Tryin’ to gain enough speed to set you free

 

You’re still glory bound

And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

When the wind knocked your cradle down

The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

And these days you get so tired

But you never could put out your fire…

no you never could put out your fire
