I meet some wild people out here
Those who are pretending and others more sincere
A few that out right scare me and ones I hold dear
I meet some wild people out here

You won't believe the things I have done
And racin' down this highway like a bullet from a gun
As life is like to kill me but it sure has made fun
You won't believe the things I have done

Birdie says I ought to go home
I swear I tried to reach you but the cop took my phone
[Incomprehensible] when they leave me alone
Birdie says I ought to go home

I don't know how I got this way
Burning through my nights and wasting my days
So many people talkin' I forgot what to say
I don't know how I ended this way

I meet some wild people out here, wild people
And those who are pretendin', other more sincere
A few that out right scare me and ones I hold dear
I meet some wild people out here
I meet some wild people out here

I hope that you sleep well tonight
Know that I am dreaming and I hope you're alright
I'm gonna be there come dawn's early light
I hope that you sleep well tonight
