Lyrics

Don't you wanna stay with me baby
For the rest of your life?
Don’t you wanna stay with me baby
For the rest of your life?
Together we can tame
That beast called fame

I climbed the mountain with you baby
Drank from the Fountain of Youth
I climbed the mountain with you baby
Drank from the Fountain of Youth
Well we stood in the belly of shame
In that beast called fame

We rolled the dice
Hoped for the best
We were lucky baby
Yeah we were blessed
We spun the wheel
Of rock ’n’ roll
We stuck together
Tried not to lose control (no!)

I won’t bring you down tonight
If you don’t want me to
I won’t bring you down tonight
If you don’t want me to
I just need someone to blame
For that beast called fame

We cracked the code
And stole the jewels
They called us heroes
They called us fools
We felt hounded
Just like Bonnie and Clyde
That look at each other
Just before they died

So don’t use that gun on me
Don’t shoot me down like a stray dog
Don’t you use that gun on me
Shoot me down like a stray dog
'Cause I’ll die howlin’ just the same
As that beast called fame
