  • I was no daddy's dream
    Was not your mama's prayer
    But I was your first and your
    Last ticket outta there
    I caught your wings on fire
    When I smoked my Bronco tires
    Outta that town

    I'm good at rollin' dice
    No good at standing still
    You liked the thought of chasin'
    Life instead of dollar bills
    We're livin' wreckless
    Nothin' to catch us, baby
    But the ground

    This ain't for everybody
    Toes hanging off the ledge
    Like we got nothin' to lose
    Ain't always heaven, baby
    This livin' on the edge
    You holdin' me holdin' you
    It's a hell of a view

    I paint with my old Gibson
    You paint your purple sky
    This town's our canvas, baby
    Let's paint it red tonight
    Go out like shooting stars
    Chasing what's in our hearts
    Into the blue (Into the blue)

    This ain't for everybody
    Toes hanging off the ledge
    Like we got nothin' to lose
    Ain't always heaven, baby
    This livin' on the edge
    You holdin' me holdin' you
    It's a hell of a view (ooh, whao ooh)
    Hell of a view (ooh)

    (Ah, ah ah, ah ah)

    We ain't for everybody
    Toes hanging off a ledge
    Like we got nothin', we got nothin' to lose
    Ain't always heaven, baby
    This livin' on the edge
    You holdin' me holdin' you
    It's a hell of a view (view, ooh, ooh)

    Hell of a view (ooh, ooh)
    Hell of a view (ooh, ooh) (ah, ah)
    Hell of a view (ooh, ooh) (ah, ah) Writer/s: Casey Beathard, Eric Church, Monty Criswell
