Beautiful Losers


I promised you sunsets, I brought the whole damn world down
Broke down horses on this one way merry-go-round
We were stars of a circus that’s been gone long from town
Now we’re the only ones left as the fallout hits the ground
You are young, you are true
When I hold you, you got nothing to fear
I never duck and run for cover
Let the world know we stand right here

Beautiful losers, beautiful losers
Wrong way right, we are the beautiful losers
Beautiful losers, don’t tell me why we are fools to cry
We are the beautiful losers

Love and theft don’t rule me like the heroes in Hollywood
I’m raising an emotion, if you listen I know you could
Honey I got a rocket, a vintage 409 under the hood
Would you need a happy ending, if I took you away for good
You are young, you are true
When I hold you, you got nothing to fear
I never duck and run for cover
Let the world know we stand right here

Beautiful losers, beautiful losers
Wrong way right, we are the beautiful losers
Beautiful losers, don’t tell me why we are fools to cry
Fool to cry, we are the beautiful losers

“Take what you got together and run for the hills. Forget what they say, forget what everyone expects and remember the only thing that matters – you and her. Hey if the rest don’t like it – screw ’em… I had a lot of fun trading off solos with Mike Conto over the extended outro on this track. Rock out with yer cawk out!”
