"Outlaw Heart" as written by and Rick Vincent Kevin W. Ball....
desert night under lonely stars. crusing down the highway takes me farther from home. whiskey and regret... neither can erase the fact that i have done wrong. so now i'm on the run. the law is on my trail. let down the only girl that ever seemed to be the one for me, so now i wander alone. alone in a cheap motel room. praying to the Lord above. burden of the past rests so heavy on my shoulders. my conscience carries the weight of blood. cigarette smoke and shadow. a neon cactus in the night. did what i did because i thought that i had no choice, but there's always another way. i look to the moon and stars, somewhere underneath them she's there. never spoke the words of love i hid in my heart. if she heard them now would she still care? wonder if she's thinking of me? does she hate me for what i've done? how i wish that i could change everything and go back now that my last chance is gone. it's gone. moon, will you tell her for me, i'm sorry for all the trouble that i've caused. if only i could find a way to return to her someday, for i long to hold her in my arms. but i fear that i'm not long for this world, because i will not go out without a fight. i'm running forever and if they should catch me... one last thought of her before my gun is fired.

    General CommentI look to the moon and stars--
    Somewhere underneath them she's there
    Never even spoke to her the words of love I hid in my heart
    If she heard them now, would she still care?
    Wonder if she's thinking of me
    How I wish i could change everything and go back
    Now that my last change is gone
    It's gone


    Whoever typed out these lyrics for got a line. "Does she hate me for what O've done should be the 4th line from the bottom.

    All in all, great song, I love it. I'm 15 and a punk/goth kind of guy. I had this song playing and my dad asked "What are you listening to?" I said "It's tiger army" he told me he liked it. :-)

    General Commentthis song is pretty self-explanatory...
    this is a great tiger army song.
    i really love their songs with the old country sound, i love the mixture of the styles, and nick's voice is amazing for it.

    General Commentyeah it has a sort of western country feel to it, makes me think of a dark, empty desert in the middle of nowhere.
    "My conscience carries the weight of blood"
    Sounds like this guy did something bad in the past that he can't escape, killed someone, maybe?

    General CommentThis song says everything about a mistake I've made in my recent past. I made a horrible mistake, and the girl that I truly loved left me.
    "Let down the only girl that ever seemed to be the one for me
    So now I wander alone"

    I can't help but cry as I put this into words.

    "Moon, will you tell her for me
    I'm sorry for all the trouble that I've caused
    If only I could find a way to return to her someday
    For I long to hold her in my arms
    Because I will not go out withougt a fight....One last thought of her before my gun is fired"

    When you find the One, hold onto her with everything you've got...
