I'm taken aback
But still I let it ride
No sudden movements
I ease my hand real slow
Then my hands are like lightning
And the bullets start to fly
I was almost in the clear too
With just inches left to go

And if it's the fool who likes to rush in
And if it's the angel who never does try
And if it's me who will lose or win
Then I'll make my best guess and I won't care why
C'mon and get me you twist of fate
I'm standing right here Mr. Destiny
If you want to talk talk, we'll not relate
If you don't so what, 'cause you don't scare me

Time come when I'm older
And a new kid hits the street
They'll say he's fast and he looks for me
And he says I'm going down
And though I try to avoid this man
Eventually we'll meet
He draws faster than I can see
And knock me to the ground

And if it's the fool who likes to rush in
And if it's the angel who never does try
And if it's me who will lose or win
Then I'll make my best guess and I won't care why
C'mon and get me you twist of fate
I'm standing right here Mr. Destiny
If you want to talk, we'll not relate
If you don't so what, 'cause you don't scare me

So I'm lying in the street there
And the lights are getting dim
Preacher men come and tells me
Repent it's time to pray
You only have to lose once
But you never always win
I smile at his modest words
This is where I've sinned

Woo yeah, and if it's the fool who likes to rush in
And if it's the angel who never does try
And if it's me who will lose or win
Then I'll make my best guess and I won't care why
C'mon and get me you twist of fate
I'm standing right here Mr. Destiny
If you want to talk, we'll not relate
If you don't so what, 'cause you don't scare me

C'mon and get me you twist of fate
I'm standing right here Mr. Destiny
If you want to talk, we'll not relate
If you don't so what, 'cause you don't scare me
