When The Wild Life Betrays Me Lyrics

by Jimmy Buffett

Can't believe I'm still here with the morning so near
And last night so unclear
I see a tremblin' hand and a gold wedding band
Wonder where do I stand

When the wild life betrays me and I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me? Will you shelter my heart 'til I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone?

All my crazy old lies and my worn out disguise
Turns to tears in your eyes
What a fool I have been there's no way I can win
Unless you take me back in

When the wild life betrays me and I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me? Will you shelter my heart 'til I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone?

When the wild life betrays me and I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me? Will you shelter my heart 'til I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone when the wild life betrays me?
