Sad songs dress pretty.

My Wildest Ride

Oil-soaked floors and spent gasoline
The smoke cleared, you were the prettiest girl I’d seen
I saw my fortune in the red flames of your hair

Hello, sir, that’s a nice bike you own
You chopped what’s slow, you threw away the chrome
Brass, steel, and leather always feel like home

Can you be strong enough to soften with the heat
Can you race a razor’s edge, but for me will you yield
‘Cause only the wild tames me

Let’s make the angels cry tonight
You’re my wildest ride
Heaven’s gonna catch its breath so hold on tight
Let’s make the angels cry tonight

It’s us and them, and they think we’re insane
Taking long-shots, living on short-term gain
But we can’t lose ‘cause we know how to play the long game

We don’t want what they think we’re missing
What good are dreams if not for chasing
Our tanks our full and we’re not breaking speed

For you I’ll be strong enough to soften with the heat
I can race a razor’s edge, but for you I will yield
‘Cause only the wild tames me

Let’s make the angels cry tonight
You’re my wildest ride
Heaven’s gonna catch its breath so hold on tight
Let’s make the angels cry tonight

We ride alone but by each other’s side
You’re what’s constant when the world’s flying by
We weave together through the broken yellow lines

Let’s make the angels cry tonight
You’re my wildest ride
Heaven’s gonna catch its breath so hold on tight
Let’s make the angels cry tonight

Let’s make the angels cry tonight
You’re my wildest ride
Heaven’s gonna catch its breath so hold on tight
Let’s make the angels cry tonight
