Amazing Rhythm Aces — Living On Borrowed Time lyrics

Back in the states
It's more fun
You ain't free when
Your life's so undone
When your freedom relies
On how well you can hide
On how fast you can run
I just got tired
I got old enough to see
How much like a prison
Temporary freedom can be

When you got no plans
And you got no dreams
You can watch your life
Runnin' out on you
In a dirty stream
And you got no use
And you got no voice
You can't live on
Peace of mind
Like you thought you could
If you made your choice

(Instrumental with great keyboard work)

My heart is strong
I was so sure of myself
I had a feelin' I could
Take hard times
As well as anyone else
But I lost your picture
And I lost a dear
Old friend of mine
People take more chances
When they're livin'
On borrowed time

When you got no plans
And you got no dreams
You can watch your life
Runnin' out on you
In a dirty stream
When you got no use
When you got no voice
And you can't live on
Peace of mind
Like you thought you could
When you made your choice

(Instrumental with sax solo till end)
