I wasn't trying to do no harm
I was just trying to prove I was tough
What I lacked in years I made up in guts

I ain't saying it was smart or that I had some master plan
I just grabbed that bottle and off I ran
I got a night in jail and a pissed old man

Young and wild like they said we should've never been
And still a child filling those nights with grown up sin
I burned up some cars, burned down some hearts
Just to call myself a man

I might not do it the same but I'd do it all again
To stay young and wild as long as you can

I wasn't trying to change the world
I just wanted to change her mind
In the backseat of my daddy's ride

No I didn't have a clue, no I didn't have a plan
Oh, but I didn't care what I didn't have
Yeah, she made me wanna feel like a man

Young and wild like they said we should've never been
And still a child filling those nights with grown up sin
I burned up some cars, burned down some hearts
Just to call myself a man

I might not do it the same but I'd do it all again
To stay young and wild as long as you can

I might not do it the same but I'd do it all again
To stay young and wild as long as you can
As long as you can, just as long as you can
