High Stakes Livin'

about

“High Stakes Livin” calls to all the rebel-rousers and wandering souls through the story of a young risk-taker. Electric guitar rips through the fold of blues-ridden vocals and bass guitar.

lyrics

The only car out on the freeway
Just her and a bearded man
And an empty can of Pepsi

Hitchhiked a hundred miles so far
From motorcycles to beat up cars
The only thing she wants
Is to go nowhere fast

And he dropped her off
At a Vegas rest stop
She had a pocket-full of change
Thought she’d give it up to chance and said

“Give me the poster,
Give me the key chain too,
Another quarter down
What have I got to lose?”
Something to believe in
Talkin’ ‘bout that high stakes livin’
That high stakes livin’

Those city lights
Can’t tell day from the night
And she’s wondering
If life will ever be the same

But she smiles up to the sky
Gives the wind an open wide eye
And gives the dice
Another roll

And says “This one’s
For the untamed
Still playing this game,
I know that I am one
But I won’t quit this restless run”
And she says:


“Give me the poster,
Give me the key chain too,
Another quarter down
What have I got to lose?”
Something to believe in
Talkin’ ‘bout that high stakes livin’
That high stakes livin’

It’s a lonely life, it’s a life for the thrill seekers
It’s a roll the dice, it’s a see what’s worth playing
It’s a this time, never have time, always have time
Risk time
And she says

“Give me the poster,
Give me the key chain too,
Another quarter down
What have I got to lose?”
Something to believe in
Talkin’ ‘bout that high stakes livin’
That high stakes livin’
