They call me crazy I don't think it's true
It's all so clear to me when I'm with you
I think that I'm some kinda rebel
But what am I fighting for?

The other day I tried to talk to god
"I'm not sure I believe in you
But whaddaya got for me, lord?"
He said "boy, just play that damn guitar
I know it makes you feel alive
Think of these days
Dontcha wanna make 'em count
'cause you feel just how they fly"

I break all the chains that are holdin' me down
Look at the horizon that's spinnin' around
Am I too young to settle down?
I always fall for those country girls
But I need the pulse of the city
And I think to myself
I can't live without the beat

Oh baby baby
Oh baby please
Lemme in I'm out in the cold
And I'm on me knees
Goddamn I'm so lonely
And I haven't found the cure

Late last night
You came knockin' on my door
Asking for some sugar in your tea
But I knew it wasn't all
Oh now I'm back in the cell of love again
And think of these days
Dontcha wanna make 'em count
'cause you know they're about to end

Hey hey hey
Please open up my chains
I promise to change my ways
This feeling inside of me
Is haunting me over an' over again

I break all the chains that are holdin' me down
Look at the horizon that's spinnin' around
I can't live without the beat
