You said it would be fun just a wild ride
Said that we would be another Bonnie and Clyde
And I was seventeen life had just begun
And you were so old for barely twenty-one
Barely twenty-one

There’s always a fork in the road where you choose
So we took that old highway called Nothing to Lose
It’s a wide-open road that touches the sky
It will leave you breathless it will leave you high
It will leave you high

The roar of the engine, the sun’s burning glare
The feel of the wind rushing through my hair
And seeing you smile like the Devil May Care
Leaves me breathless
Leaves me breathless

It started as simple as a moth to a flame
You had a hunger for the wrong kind of fame
And I was too young or too blind to see
Doing things wrong doesn’t make you free
We were never free

So easy to become that thing that you hate
To blame it on people to blame it on fate
Why did we give in to those demons inside?
We had the road before us why didn’t we ride?
Wdidn’t we ride?

The touch of your hand on my sunburnt skin
There’s no way out now no way we can win
And praying to God to forgive all our sin
Leaves me breathless
Leaves me breathless

You said it would be fun, you said it would be wild
This wide-open highway and this wide-eyed child
But trying not to pay for mistakes in your life
Is like trying not to bleed when your cut by a knife
Cut by a knife

So Bonnie and Clyde turned out to be fools
Didn’t care who they hurt when they broke all the rules
And I should have seen it coming, the guns and fast cars
With blue lights shining brighter than the stars
Brighter than the stars

The force of the impact the sirens squeal
The cold bite of glass and merciless steel
We played our best hand now it’s the devil’s deal
And seeing you now hunched over the wheel
So cold and breathless
Oh, it leaves me breathless
