Billy Squier – Tryin' To Walk A Straight Line lyrics

Are you lookin' for adventure... Are you lookin' at me
Are you gettin' enough... Do you wanna break free
Look over your shoulder... You're one step older
Now I said to myself "self, there must be more than this"
I wanna know... I gotta step back from the fast-track heart-attack
Can you stand up tall... You know it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line

Would you get up and fight when it all goes south
Would you dare to be right in the shadow of doubt
Resist temptation... Ya face the nation
When you know what you know... Can you still say 'no'
C'mon... Gotta get smart--make a new start--do your part
Turn it inside out... No it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line... Try to be good to me

See the future walk past... Now she's too daze gone
And the first will be last(lookout)... Sing that same sad song
Behave your voice... Behave your ass
Get into your cult... Be good to yourself
Turn it inside out... You know it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line
