(S. Van Zandt)

Baby, you can't slow me down
I've come too far to ever turn back now
I've spent my whole life working
Working so hard for it, yes I did

Baby, I changed the odds today
Gonna push the scales, baby, till they tilt my way
Pass that bottle, deal the cards
'Cause I ain't waiting no more, no more

You can say what you want to
But there ain't nothing gonna change my mind

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it, baby
This time it's for real
It's got to be real, baby

The time has come and I've paid the bill
I'll keep the glass raised 'till my cup is filled
I'm gonna keep on shaking
'Till it all comes tumblin' down
Yes I will, baby

Baby, don't give me no advice
Gonna shoot it all, baby, on a roll of the dice
When you start with nothing
You ain't got nothing to lose
Listen, baby

Well you can do what you want to
But there ain't nothing gonna stop me now

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it baby
This time it's for real
I said, said come on
Got to be, baby

You can stay if you wanna
It don't make a bit of difference to me

Baby, this time it's for real
I know, I know it baby
This time it's for real

I know it's got to be real now
I know it this time, baby
I know it, come on, baby
I know, I know, I know it
Baby, this time it's for real
I know it's got to be real
Got to be, got to be real
I know it
It's got to be, got to be real
