Mama said, slow down
But I was goin' too fast to listen
Said, what goes around comes around
But only time could get my attention
But as I look back now
Over advice well-given
I can't help wond'rin' how
It is that I'm still livin'.

Chorus:
I had some wild friends
We did some crazy things
We kept some long, late hours
We dared the lightning
We took it to the edge
Runnin' full speed ahead
We laid our lives on the line
We dared the lightning.

It really blows my mind
I don't know that I survived
Still I go back from time to time
And visit others by their grave sites
Wish mama had lived to see
That now I have kids of my own
She'd be laughing at me
But mama never cast a stone.

Chorus:
I had some wild friends
We did some crazy things
We kept some long, late hours
We dared the lightning
We took it to the edge
Runnin' full speed ahead
We laid our lives on the line
We dared the lightning.

It was like playin' Russian roulette
Always braggin' and bluffin'
Racin' 'round and dodgin' bullets
We never stopped at nothin'.

Chorus:
I had some wild friends
We did some crazy things
We kept some long, late hours
We dared the lightning
We took it to the edge
Runnin' full speed ahead
We laid our lives on the line
We dared the lightning.

Chorus:
I had some wild friends
We did some crazy things
We kept some long, late hours
We dared the lightning
We took it to the edge
Runnin' full speed ahead
We laid our lives on the line
We dared the lightning.

We laid our lives on the line
We dared the lightning
We dared the lightning
We dared the lightning
We dared the lightning
We dared the lightning
We dared the lightning...
