You're wound up tight like a hairpin trigger
Just about ready to snap
You're driving 'round like a crash test dummy
All over the map

You're doing this, you're doing that
One thing leads to another
And maybe some day if you ever sleep
You're gonna wake up and discover

You live your life like a wrecking ball
Just get carried away
And then you bounce back from another close call
Live your life like a wrecking ball

You're at the table, it's the same old game
Double up the bet
You keep on hoping that your luck will change
It hasn't happened yet

You live your life like a wrecking ball
Pretty high price to pay
And then you slam into another brick wall
Live your life like a wrecking ball

[Guitar solo]

Live your life like a wrecking ball
Pretty high price to pay
And then you slam into another brick wall
Live your life like a wrecking ball

And you know it's tough to be the last man standing
When you're crawling on the floor
You're coming in for a bumpy landing
Better circle 'round some more

You live your life like a wrecking ball
Just get carried away
Then you bounce back from another close call
Live your life like a wrecking ball
