Hey now what you doing
Don't go down the road to ruin
Look back at where you came from
Count to ten before you go wrong

You have the brightest future
Writing songs on your computer
But you couldn't walk the extra mile
And now your life is running wild

You've gotta hold your head up high
You know it's not too late to try
You've gotta lift that heavy load
You've gotta get back in control

The days you've said to me
What is it that your eyes see
Is it love or is it hate
Banging on an opened gate

Hey now, who's that with you
What's that thing I saw him give you
Turn around don't come no closer
You took it from my shoulder holster

You've gotta hold your head up high
You know it's not too late to try
You've gotta lift that heavy load
You've gotta get back in control

You've gotta hold your head up high
You know it's not too late to try
You've gotta lift that heavy load
You've gotta get back in control

Why don't you put that gun right down
Before you kill the love you found

Hey now what you doing (what you doing)
Don't go down the road to ruin
