I've treated this ol' body like a stolen car
Just some old disposable machine
Pedal to the metal and a trail of broken hearts
Yea I'd fill it up with almost anything
My motto was live fast and go out strong
But I never thought that I'd live this long

Once I had a woman and she treated me real good
The kinda love I never will replace
One day I thought I ain't seen the world the way I should
So one night I got up and stepped away
I knew there'd be some lonely is comin' on
But I never thought that I'd live this long

There have been many times I really should have died
But somehow I survived on my mistakes
They say it makes me stronger, why does it take longer
Gettin' up these days

Yea I'm old enough to have a few regrets
I'm still young enough to have my dreams
Maybe that's the reason that my life ain't over yet
All the places and the faces I ain't seen
I probably won't have time to see them all
But then again I never thought I'd live this long

I keep rollin' on down that road
Oh yeah yeah
Oh, I'm still livin'
Ain't no turnin' back you know
I'm gonna keep on livin'
Keep on livin'
Keep on livin' on
The way I'm livin'
