This is world that we live in
I feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

Well maybe I was mistaken
I heard a rumor that you quit this day and age
Well maybe I was mistaken

Bless your body, bless your soul
Pray for peace and self control

I gotta believe it's worth it
Without a victory,
I'm so sanctified and free
Well maybe I'm just mistaken

Lesson learned and the wheels keep turning

This is the world that we live in
I can't take blame for two
This is the world that we live in
And maybe we'll make it through

Bless your body, bless your soul
Pray for peace and self-control

Underneath the waterfall
Baby we're still in this

This is the world that we live in
Feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

I had a dream that I was falling, down
There's no next time, alone
A storm wastes its water on me
But my life was free

I guess it's the world that we live in
It's not too late for that
This is the world that we live in
And no, we can't go back

This is the world that we live in
We still want something real
This is the world that we live in
I know that

This is the world that we live in

Joy Ride (Night Version)

length: 7:16
writer: Brandon Flowers, Mark Stoermer, Ronnie Vannucci Jr., Dave Keuning
It's getting close to sundown over the Sierra
Stranded on the freeway burning with desire
She was on the sidewalk looking for a night light
We talked about the real things
And drove into the fire
Headlights on the highway
The desert wind is howling
Rattlesnakes and romance
Is filling with the rain
Candy apple red dress
Bleeding when she kissed me
Heaven in a rag top
Take away my pain

[Chorus]
When your chips are down
When your highs are low
Joyride
Move across the night
Like a separate wind

Pulled up to a motel
"Vacancy" was buzzing
Pink and dirty neon
Settle on the hood
Wrap your arms around me
Come a little closer
Stumble in the twilight
And fell onto the floor
Loving Mona Lisa
Dreaming of the free world
Lipstick on the nightstand
And demons at the door

[Chorus]

When your hopes and dreams
Lose the will to go
Joyride
Reaching for the light
Knowing we can't win

There's something in the distance
A glorious existence
A simple celebration
A place you've never been before
Tell me that you wanna go

Reaching for the light
Knowing we can't win

When your chips are down
When your highs are low
Joyride

All your hopes and dreams
All you need to know
Joyride
