  • I been livin' like a drunken sailor
    Playin' in a rock 'n roll band
    Far from a failure, I feel like a brand new man
    Smoking like a fiend and schemin'
    Dealin' with the upper hand
    It's been so long since I felt this good, God damn

    I'm finally standin' tall
    I feel I just can't fall
    Your love takes me to a higher place

    For the first time, in a long time
    I'm done payin' my dues
    For the first time, in a long time
    I don't feel used

    Let's go out honky tonkin'
    Dancing till the morning light
    The time is now and this time I feel all right

    I'm finally standin' tall
    I feel I just can't fall
    Your love takes me to a higher place

    For the first time, in a long time
    I don't stand accused
    For the first time, in a long time
    I feel brand new
    Life's been kind, water tastes like wine
    I feel so high like I'm on cloud nine
    For the first time, in a long time Writer/s: CRAIG YOUNG, JULIE VASSAR
