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
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
