It's like betting on the races,
Fingers crossed for years.
Am I like a beggar waiting?
Or do I really love to lose?

Oh, days gone driftless,
Betting like we do.
The nights are long

Pull aside and let it go.
The trapeze and the calling after,
100 times and now you know
How to hold your breath under water

Oh, wishing I could
Wishing I could have
Wishing I would
Cut it loose and let it go.
Cut it loose and let it go.

85 on 3
Shotgun on the dial, baby
This ain't nothing but a lease.
There's no such thing as an endless highway

Oh, wishing I could
Wishing I could have
Wishing I would
Cut it loose and let it go.
Cut it loose and let it go.
Cut it loose and let it go.
