  • I heard you got arrested in the street last night
    You called me with a voice I didn't recognize
    So you're numbin' the pain, stuck in your ways
    Since we were kids it was like this
    But I will be there, I will be there for you

    Hey child, hey child
    We were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright
    Oh, hey child, hey child
    We were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright
    Oh, oh

    Back in the '06, sellin' weed to the freshman kids
    You were the end of my aim whenever separate
    And I know you've been hurtin', think you deserve it
    How did it end up like this?
    Everything will be fine if you just get through tonight

    Hey child, hey child
    We were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright, oh
    Hey child, hey child
    We were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright
    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    My brother's got a baby on the way now
    I hope that you'll meet him some day
    I hope he don't make the same mistakes we made
    And when I look him in the eyes, I'll say

    Hey child, hey child
    You were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright, oh
    Hey child, hey child
    We were born wild
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright
    Oh, oh

    Hey, hey child
    Oh, oh
    Hey, hey child
    You're born wild
    (We were born, we were born wild)
    Let your neon lights
    Keep shinin' bright
    Oh, oh Writer/s: Adam Levin, Andrew Michael Wells, Casey Wakeley Harris, Samuel Nelson Harris
